We provide support in household duties, personal care, nursing care, rehabilitation, day care, carer support, health promotion, and community support services to the elderly or families in need and persons with disability. These services enable elders to stay at home of their choice, while the carers are supported to perform their caring role.
Smiley Activation Project – Community / Home-based Depression Treatment for the Elderly
This project is supported by The HSBC 150th Anniversary Charity Programme through a donation to the Community Chest from October 2018 to September 2020. It aims to raise community’s awareness of elderly depression, assist older adults to rebuild connection with the community, and learn problem-solving skills, promote pleasant events to reduce symptoms of depression and improve emotional well-being.
