HKSH Healthcare Launches Elderly Care and Community Nursing Services to Promote Healthy Ageing

(Hong Kong, 20 May 2017) A new service model in promoting care for the elderly has been adopted by HKSH Healthcare at its recently launched Senior Citizen Wellness Centre at The Tanner Hill which encompasses a comprehensive range of services including geriatric medicine out-patient services, preventive care and health promotional activities.
As a forerunner, the centre, in response to increasing patient needs, will also be providing services on “advance directive”, “end-of-life and dying at home care” to terminally-ill patients. Some of these services will be delivered in partnership with a new community nursing programme to be launched on Monday, 22 May.
The launch was announced by Deputy Medical Superintendent of Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital, Dr. Joseph CHAN, today at the grand opening ceremony of HKSH Healthcare Senior Citizen Wellness Centre and Launching Ceremony of HKSH Community Nursing Service.
The centre will be served by a team of specialists in Geriatric Medicine who are experienced in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic geriatric illnesses. The specialists will also take care of the rehabilitation, psychological and social needs of the elderly with a view to enhancing their quality of life.
The Centre, serving residents of The Tanner Hill and the local community since December last year, was formally opened at a ceremony today officiated by the Secretary for Labour and Welfare, Mr. Stephen SUI; the Acting Secretary for Food and Health, Professor Sophie CHAN; the chairman of Eastern District Council, Mr. WONG Kin Pan together with Deputy Medical Superintendent of Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital, Dr. Joseph CHAN and Director of Geriatric Medicine of HKSH, Dr. Edward LEUNG.
