Elders with early dementia, frail elders, their carers and the community of Cho Yiu Estate and Lai Yiu Estate
Cho Yiu Estate and Lai Yiu Estate,
Cho Yiu Estate and Lai Yiu Estate are two old public housing estates of more than 40 years. Around 39% of the residents are aged 60 or above and 27% of the elderly population are singleton or elderly couples. Furthermore, the 2 estates are on the hillside, posing difficulty for the daily living of the elders and the care support of the families. By adopting a community- and strength-based approach, the project will provide opportunities for at-risk elders, family caregivers and community stakeholders in building up a dementia- and carer- friendly community.
