Elderly Services

The Club has all along been adopting a proactive approach to initiate and lend support to projects that address short- to long-term challenges arising from the ageing population trend. Apart from establishing the first-ever integrated dementia care centre in Hong Kong and in Southeast Asia – the Jockey Club Centre for Positive Ageing, the Club's Charities Trust has been an advocate of positive ageing through various initiatives. These include the launch of CADENZA: A Jockey Club Initiative for Seniors, which aims at pioneering new approaches in elderly care and enhancing the quality of life of the elderly. Over the years, the Trust has also supported various projects in elderly employment, community support, promotion of health, and intergenerational harmony.

With the aim to improve care for the elderly and build Hong Kong into an age-friendly city, the Trust funded the establishment of the CUHK Jockey Club Institute of Ageing in 2014 to actively pursue community research projects, public education and knowledge transfer programmes to promote active ageing in Hong Kong. In addition, the Trust recently collaborated with four gerontology research institutes to launch the Jockey Club Age-friendly City project. The project will assess the current situation in the community, and cooperate with various community partners to promote intergenerational harmony and build an age-friendly Hong Kong.
