Purchase Home Safety Items for Singleton and Elderly Couples in Need

In response to the sharp growth of local elderly population in the foreseeable future, the HKRC has developed Home-based Chronic Disease Management Service for the Elderly (CDME) since 2014, hoping to assist elders with chronic diseases to manage their diseases and prevent further deterioration of health condition through regular home visits performed by trained volunteers.

 

During the recent regular home visits, our volunteers noticed that some elders are lack of home safety knowledge and even unable to afford home safety items due to financial difficulties.

 

We hope to raise $25,000 to purchase the following home safety items for those needy elders. Please show your concern to singleton and elderly couples, and join hands with us to help improve safety in their homes!
