Overview of Care Services for the Elderly


Health Care

To slow down the decline, food nutrition, exercise and body care are particularly important for the elderly

Food nutrition:

Our care homes and day care centres provide healthy breakfast, lunch, dinner and refreshments to the elderly; while the Housing for the elderly provide soups, fruits and grocery items through ‘Hot Meal Ambassadors’, ‘Caring for the Elderly Programme’, and ‘Love and Care Programme’ to enhance the quality of their meals and educate the residents on the importance of balanced nutrition through talks and seminars.


We always encourage the elderly to do more exercise to slow down the deterioration of their physical functions.

Exercise rooms are available for regular exercise and are also open to the elderly in the community. Our physiotherapists provide individualised exercise treatment plans for the residents who are in need. Some of our elderly homes also organize sports events for the residents.


In addition, Boccia Competition for the Elderly held every year to let the elderly to show their skills and enjoy sports. The ball used in boccia is very light and suitable for all people, including the frail and even wheelchair-bound elderly. It is a popular sport for elderly as it can strengthen their back strength and hand-eye coordination. Therefore, the tournament attracts more than 1,000 participants every year.

Health care:

Our care homes and day care centers have nurses on duty to take care of the elderly. The Housing of the Elderly provides regular physical check-ups and health education for all residents. Free medical consultation is also be provided by doctors.

Cognitive Training  

Appropriate cognitive training is required to the elderly, stimulating their brain and cognitive functions.

Our occupational therapists usually provide cognitive training for the elderly to enhance their memory functions.

We also actively organise activities to train their memory and cognition, such as the annual event ‘Rummikub Club’.

Since 2015, we have also launched the ‘Care for the Elderly, Care for the Brain’ Project, promoting brain health.

In addition, Boccia Competition for the Elderly held every year to strengthen their back strength and hand-eye coordination. It also helps to train their brain which is good for their body and mind.

Mental Health  

We are particularly concerned about the mental health of the elderly, encouraging them towards successful ageing.

Interesting groups such as gardening, handicraft and painting, as well as religious activities are often organised to help the elderly to cultivate their interests and stabilise their emotions.

In view of the risk of depression and suicide in the elderly, our elderly homes not only provide talks and education, but also organise activities to promote mental health, such as our theme of the year -‘Life Education’, "Life and Lighting’, ‘Life Stories - Experiencing Aging Services’, ‘Life Well’ Booklet, ‘Life Well Planned Sharing Day’ and film show of positive life.

Social Life  

An enjoyable social life and healthy family relationships can bring a positive impact to elderly.

Social Life:

Various recreational and outdoor activities are held regularly to help enhance interaction among residents and their sense of belonging to the elderly home and the organisation. Through various special community support programmes, it helps to broaden the social circle between the residents and the elderly who are living alone in the community.

We encourage companies and organisations to visit our elderly home to keep the elderly in touch with the community.

We also encourage residents to participate in our voluntary work. For example, being a committee of our elderly home and ‘Caring Ambassador’ to serve the frail residents or ‘Hot Meal Ambassador’ to serve the elderly who are living alone in the community, helping and interacting with one another.

Family Relationship

Our elderly homes organise regular family meetings or exchange sessions and other activities to maintain good communication and close relationship with their family. We also provide support and counselling and to make appropriate intervention or referral if necessary.
