    Nearly 240 healthcare volunteers successfully completed the “Home Health Watch Programme” at the Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) and are ready to provide service to the elderly and those in need in the community.

    The “Home Health Watch Programme” was provided under the “Jockey Club Community Healthcare Education Programme” of the OUHK, which was launched in 2013 with generous support from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust. It aims at offering free healthcare education to individuals who are interested in voluntary service. Participants will be equipped with essential healthcare knowledge and skills to facilitate them to provide community volunteer services in the future.

    The 3rd Jockey Club Home Health Watch Programme Graduation Ceremony was held last Saturday (8 Jul), and was officiated by Executive Manager, Charities (Grant Making – Youth, Education & Training, Poverty) of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Ms Winnie Ying and President of the OUHK Prof. Yuk-Shan Wong.

    Speaking at the ceremony, Prof. Wong expressed his gratitude to The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust for its enormous support to promote community healthcare education over the years. “In the past three years, we have cooperated with 29 NGOs and trained nearly 900 volunteers to offer community-based supportive healthcare services and promote the spirit of mutual aid and communal harmony. It is encouraging to see that more and more young people, in addition to the elderly and retirees, are joining the Programme and helping to turn Hong Kong into a more cohesive and healthy society.” Prof. Wong added.

    “The Club has granted funding of more than HK$641 million to support the development of OUHK in the past two decades,” said Ms Ying. “In response to the increasing demand for medical and community healthcare needs, we started to work hand-in-hand with OUHK in 2011 to run a Certificate and Diploma Programme for Healthcare Workers and a Healthcare Programme for Enrolled Nurses. We are delighted to see that more than 230 volunteers can now join community support and healthcare services upon their graduation from the programme.”

    Among the volunteers who have successfully completed the Programme, Ms Wong Mei-yuk is the champion of this year’s Jockey Club Home Health Watch Programme Volunteers Writing Contest. She remarked that the Programme has enriched her healthcare knowledge to serve more elderly and people in need. Through the Programme, she has learnt the importance of personal and community health, communication skills, and the proper ways to store medications. It also provided her with lots of useful information on healthcare services available in Hong Kong, helping her to identify suitable home physiotherapy and transportation services for her service targets, thereby improving their quality of life.

    The annual Community Healthcare Day was held on the same day. Free game booths, exhibition and heath check counters were designed and manned by the nursing students of the OUHK to promote healthy lifestyle and general health awareness among the public.

    Under the Jockey Club Community Healthcare Education Programme, two part-time academic programmes are also offered to those who are interested to pursue a career in this area: 1) a 30-credit Certificate Programme in Health Studies (Community Health Care); and 2) a 60-credit Diploma Programme in Health Studies (Community Health Care).
