MIND-friendly Home Exploration Centre

With the ageing population, the number of people with dementia is expected to increase. In every 3 seconds, there will be one person diagnosed with dementia in the world; in Hong Kong, around a third of people aged above 85 are with dementia. People with dementia are facing many challenges in their daily living, especially in their home environment.

Housing Society Elderly Resources Centre set up Mind-Friendly Home Exploration Centre, the first of its kind in Hong Kong, to promote the concept of dementia-friendly home. This centre shows principles and applications on how to adopt a more friendly home design for people with dementia, so as to reduce the pressure of care-givers and facilitate the elderly to achieve ageing in place. In 2021 December, we are recognized by Ageing Asia as "Innovation of the Year— Dementia Care Model Solution" in Asia Pacific Eldercare Innovation Awards (also known as the Oscars of eldercare sector).
