Nothing can stop our all-round support for frail elderly

A leisurely retirement may be a dream for us all.  But alas, there is a distance between reality and dreams.  One day we may lose our self-care ability and become dependent in our daily living needs, large and small.

Nowadays, households are getting smaller.  We have currently 450,000 elderly singletons and doubletons in our society.  As their self-care ability decline as they age, a stable retirement life once they long for would get tough.  Elderly couples may support each other, but elderly singletons have to face their chronic illnesses or financial difficulties all by alone.  There’s no way for them to relive their stress.  Sometimes they may even worry about becoming a burden to their families, leading to tragedies.

The Salvation Army Home Care Service Team has been established in Kwun Tong since 1979.  At present, the Team’s service has extended to Yau Ma Tei, Tsim Sha Tsui, Tai Po and Sai Kung, providing community support services to people with self-care difficulties and the needy families, including nursing, rehabilitation, meal delivery, home care and laundry.  We hope that our services can help the elderly live in dignity as we actualise the concepts of ‘Ageing in Place’ and ‘Continuum of Care’.  

Our carers regularly pay home visits and deliver materials to the elderly and their families, supporting their body, mind and soul and walking out of the dark and helpless days with them.  At this Mid-Autumn Festival, we sincerely invite you all to donate and support The Salvation Army community care services to bring help and love to those in need.
