Service Content

1. Elderly Home Maintenance Service

Our service aims to eliminate home safety hazards and provide “tailor-made” home

modification and maintenance services based on elders’ individual needs.    

 

2. Electrical Appliances for the Elderly Programme   

Our services provided one-stop “Electric Appliances Safety Screening” and “Electric Appliances delivery with installation” so as to improve their quality of life by building a safe home environment.  

 

3. Warmth Giving Project (Winter only)  

Aims to provide warm keeping items for elders under cold weather which at the same time, deliver care and concern from the community directly to elders’ home.  

 

4. Home Haircut Service

Aims to facilitate our service users with chronic illness and limited mobility living with dignity.  We invited volunteers to provide haircut service directly at their own homes so they do not need to worry about any difficulties of traveling out.  Our service emphasized on “care & concern” and helped to establish a “brand new image” so that our users could live with clean and healthy appearance which at the same time, to relief stress and anxiety of their major carer. 

 

5.Home Based Health Support Services

Elders living alone received inadequate family support and showed weak awareness in the aspect of self-health management.    They might have unhealthy eating habits (eating oily and salty food), poor adherence to medication, lack of regular physical exercises etc. which led to health deterioration and self-care ability eventually.
