Tsuen Wan

"Caring Engaging Smart", an initiative by the Hong Kong Housing Society (HKHS), aims to improve the living environment and community facilities for the elderly residents, and support their housing and social needs. In collaboration with HKHS, we will guide the elderly singletons and elderly couples living in Moon Lok Dai Ha to use smartphones apps to access services supporting their ability to live independently and help them stay socially connected. You will provide both practical assistance and emotional support to residents in need.
