Stair Climbing Service (2nd Phase)

Elderly Service – News      2019/06/24

「落得樓」樓梯機服務

 

In 2018, HKCSS received support from the Keswick Foundation and Lee Hysan Foundation to develop the “Stair Climber Service” in collaboration with 4 NGOs. The service had supported 500 persons in need and had provided over 9,000 service orders. Service users were enabled to attend medical follow up, participate in rehabilitation programmes and receive trainings from day care centres. Some of them can attend important family functions such as wedding, grave sweeping and participating in social activities.

 

According to the Social Impact Assessment, this service reconnects the users with the community and brings significant improvement to the quality of life of the users and their caregivers. Keswick Foundation and Lee Hysan Foundation will continue to support this service from June 2019 to May 2020. Our collaborating NGOs, including St. James’ Settlement, Evangelical Lutheran Church Social Service - Hong Kong and Hong Kong Christian Service will continue to serve the needy people in the Hong Kong Island, Sham Shui Po, Yuen Long and Tuen Mun Districts.
