Active Ageing & Community Care Service

Service Introduction

  • District Elderly Community Centre & Neighbourhood Elderly Centres

    Our District Elderly Community Centre and 3 Neighbourhood Elderly Centres (Bliss OPlus, Shun Lee OPlus, Fortune OPlus and Un Chau OPlus) are located in Kwun Tong and Sham Shui Po respectively. While Hong Kong residents aged 60 or above and their caregivers are the major service targets, the centres are also committed to mobilize volunteers and other parties of the community to participate in the service. Moreover, we also encourage individuals who reach their 50s to join our programmes, to motivate them to actively plan for their future retirement lives. The 4 centres provide diversified community support services to over 6,000 service users, with a total attendance of over 300,000 each year. 

  • Integrated Home Care Service

    Shamshuipo Integrated Home Care Service Team and Wan Hon Integrated Home Care Service Team are situated in Sham Shui Po and Kwun Tong respectively.  The three main service targets include: seniors aged 60 or above who are living in the community, people with disabilities or illnesses, and individuals and families with social needs.  According to the various needs of these target groups, they are classified into two categories: (1) Ordinary Cases (persons without or with mild level of impairment or disabilities), and (2) Frail Cases (seniors assessed to be in the state of moderate or severe level of impairment by the Standardized Care Need Assessment Mechanism for Elderly Services of Social Welfare Department). Our two Integrated Home Care Service Teams serve nearly 700 cases and the annual service attendance exceeds 160,000. We organise various activities to facilitate the seniors to strengthen their social support networks, recognize their strengths and actively integrate into the community to enjoy an autonomous and dignified life.  

  • Special Projects

    The projects, tailor-made for seniors with different ethnic backgrounds and diversified health conditions, serve more than 300 seniors and their caregivers through a wide variety of services every year.  The services include "Jockey Club Community eHealth Care Project" to promote preventive healthcare among the elderly and empower them in health management; and "Support to Ethnic Elderly (SEE) Project" which provides support service for facilitating South Asian & South East Asian seniors to use the mainstream social services and integrate into society.

  • Empowerment and Advocacy Work

    With "advocate justice" as one of our agency missions, we actively concern and promptly respond to social policies and welfare related to the seniors.  We intend to empower the seniors and encourage them to voice out their opinions.

 

Service Objectives

  • to provide one-stop, comprehensive and professional community support services for elders by upholding the community-based direction and adopting an integrated service model, with innovative approaches and service mindset. We aim at promoting a healthy life-style among elders, facilitating participation and continuous learning, so as to embrace their longevity and actively engage in discovering new horizons, to actualise active ageing and to put our new motto, "Proud Ageing, Creating Infinity" in action.
  • To put rationale of “ageing in place” into practice.  Through providing support services to those individuals or families who need support for their daily living due to frailties, illnesses or lack of care, we enable them to live in their own familiar community and enjoy a delightful, autonomous, dignified and hopeful life for avoiding premature admission to residential facilities;
  • To provide comprehensive support to the caregivers to strengthen their confidence and capabilities in caregiving;
  • To consolidate social resources to facilitate building up a harmonious and age-friendly community;
  • To care for the disadvantaged and the neglected.  We take initiative to explore potential service needs and more effective service delivery models.  We aim at filling existing service gaps by providing timely services to facilitate their participation and integration into the community as well as to raise public awareness on their needs.
