Let's make a change by connecting our senior adults to the world!
for Senior Adults
We aim to improve the mental health of senior adults, especially those who live alone, by connecting them with society. Through sessions teaching them how to use social media and browsers, they would be able to find information and get in touch with friends & relatives any time, anywhere. We hope to fight social isolation of senior adults with our project.
In 2016, more than
15% of senior
adults aged over 65 live alone.
More than 1 in 10 senior adults in HK display symptoms of depression.
join group activities
less likely to suffer from depression.
A variety of Smart technology courses, each with specific topics like WhatsApp, Browsers & Facebook will be held in a community centre in Tuen Mun. Senior adults will be put into small groups according to their ability so they can learn effectively under the assistance of volunteers. We also hope that the senior adults can share what they learnt with others after participating in our courses. That's why we will hold a connection event at the end of our project so senior adults who join different courses can meet one another and learn about how to help friends with their new skills.
