[UG] Building Hong Kong into an age-friendly city: The Role of Primary Healthcare toward Positive and Healthy Ageing
Like other advanced economies, the ageing trend is becoming a major concern in Hong Kong. Maintaining intrinsic capacity (IC), comprising cognition, mobility, psychological, vitality, and sensory functions, among middle-aged and elderly people is of utmost importance, and requires the collaborative efforts of multiple health care disciplines.
In this CCL recognised seminar, the representative from the Jockey Club CADENZA Hub (JCCH), a one-stop integrated medical and social care centre in Tai Po, will share the experiences of encouraging people aged 50 or above to live a healthier lifestyle and raising public awareness of primary healthcare via its community health education programmes, and health management and support services.
Date & Time: 14 Sep 2022, 4 pm - 5:30 pm
Speaker: Ms. Angel HUI
Centre Manager & Senior Physiotherapist of Jockey Club CADENZA Hub
