With the increasing population of elderly in Hong Kong, the number of residents aged 60 or above now accounts for approximately 32% of some 90,000 public housing tenants. To address this issue, the Housing Society launched the "Ageing-in-Place" (AIP) Scheme to allow elderly tenants to “age-in-place” by providing support services through a “one-stop” support network. The Scheme was piloted at Cho Yiu Chuen last year.

HKUST volunteers participated in home visits to meet and greet elders in order to promote this programme. The volunteers  visited the elders and showed care and concern about their daily life by sharing their life stories.
