Caring for Elders with Dementia

HKUST students volunteered at the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals Standard Chartered Hong Kong 150th Anniversary Community Foundation Alzheimer’s Community Support Centre, which aims at providing high-quality and professional services to elders with dementia and their caregivers, in order to delay the elders’ deterioration and provide support to caregivers.

The volunteers were involved with organizing activities for the elders and helped to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s in the local community. Before the service event, the volunteers received training from the center to learn basic knowledge about the disease and techniques to better communicate with individuals who have Alzheimer's. Both the volunteers and elders enjoyed their time together.
