Welcome Home: Elderly Safe Living Scheme

The “Welcome Home: Elderly Safe Living Scheme” brings together volunteers of all ages to carry out home environment assessments for Eastern District residents. Elderly-friendly equipment – from long-handled reachers, anti-slip mats and anti-slip slippers, to shower chairs and night lights –is offered free of charge based on needs. “Mr Fix it” volunteers also help to install safety grab bars, etc. to enhance home safety. 

Co-organised by the Swire Properties’ Community Ambassador Programme, Hong Kong Young Women's Christian Association and Hong Kong Housing Society, the Scheme aims to enhance elderly’s awareness of home safety, especially in terms of fall prevention.
