樂齡頤家

樂齡頤家

老齡化是一種全球現象。 與其他發達經濟體一樣,香港將在未來幾十年面臨人口結構轉變的挑戰。 65歲及以上人口將從2014年佔總人口的15.4%左右上升到2064年的35.9%左右。 香港也將面臨老齡化的挑戰,加上亞熱帶氣候下建築物的狀況惡化等問題出現。

 

世界衛生組織 (WHO) 因應全球高齡化所提出之指南,希望透過此指南讓全世界的高齡者都能在一個友善且舒適的環境裡達到活躍老化。 而世界衛生組織 (WHO)更將住房確定為全面了解社區關愛老人的八個必要領域之一。

Using the Double Smart Assessment Tool developed by PolyU’s Jockey Club Design Institute for Social Innovation, Habitat staff will guide elderly residents to assess their homes’ appropriateness for their ageing needs. We will make recommendations to improve safety and connectivity of the home.

We will provide modification services to elderly people living in public rental housing, including the installation of a bedside light switch, D-shaped handles on cupboards, grab bars and assistive technology for the residents.

This was piloted in 2022/2023 as part of our Project Home Works programme. Click here to view the report and find out more.
