E1 “老”吾老 – 悟宿基金會長者探訪服務

Providence Foundation’s Ongoing Elderly Home Visit Programme

Collaborating Agency:

The Neighbourhood Advice-Action Council, Shamshuipo District Elderly Community Centre 鄰舍輔導會-深水埗康齡社區服務中心

Brief Description:

It is a home visit service provided to the “hidden elderly”. There are numbers of elderly living in the community, lacking of family care or community support. They are living alone and have difficulties in integrating into the community. Our service is going to provide a daily living assessment on their needs and report to the agency for timely assistance and emotional support for their social needs. To develop a long-term relationship, there are 6 sessions during the service period. Different outing activities, which aim to strengthen the connection between the elderly and the community, will be organized during the semester.

社區上有不少「隱蔽長者」缺乏家庭關懷和社區支援,他們大多獨居,並較少與社區接觸。義工會服務期間上門探訪,與長者建立關係,並透過一起參與不同活動,加強長者與社區的連繫。
