    Community Healthcare Day and Jockey Club Home Health Watch Programme

    The ‘Jockey Club Community Healthcare Education Programme: Community Healthcare Day’ was held on 19 July on the OUHK campus. Officiating at the opening ceremony were Secretary for Labour and Welfare Mr Matthew Cheung, Steward of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Mr Anthony Chow, Chairman of the Elderly Commission Prof. Alfred Chan, Deputy Director (Services) of the Social Welfare Department Mr Lam Ka-tai and OUHK President Prof. Yuk-Shan Wong.

    With the aim of raising public awareness on health, the event was open to members of the public and featured an exhibition on useful health information, a wide variety of fun health-themed games and a counter providing free basic health assessment.

    The ‘Jockey Club Home Health Watch Programme’ was also launched on the same occasion. The programme will train 1,500 community volunteers to provide timely, community-based support and care to the elderly, the disabled and individuals suffering from chronic diseases. The programme is part of the ‘Community Healthcare Education Programme’ funded by a generous donation of $10.7 million from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, which was launched last year with a target of training a total of 2,500 healthcare practitioners at various levels within the next five years. Prior to this occasion, a forum had been organized on 17 June to explain the philosophy, details and expected results of the relevant programmes, in which prospective graduates were invited to share their learning experiences. Mr Matthew Cheung commended the programmes by saying, ‘the newly trained healthcare workers and volunteers are valuable resources for the community and will act as an essential supporting force underpinning the Government’s policy of encouraging ageing within a supportive community.’
