CAREnJOY-for-the-Elderly

Partnering with nine elderly service agencies on Hong Kong and Lamma islands, HK Electric extends its care to single elders through the "CAREnJOY for the Elderly" (CAREnJOY) programme.          

CAREnJOY encourages single elders to reach out to the community and promotes mutual support in the neighbourhood. Senior citizens are recruited and trained as ambassadors to encourage single elders to join local service centres, so that the latter are connected to community support and know where to seek help if needed.        

Visits to single elders and district-based electrical safety talks cum gatherings are held on Hong Kong and Lamma islands. Material aids are provided during the visits. HK Electric volunteers also leverage their expertise to check out electrical installations in the elders' homes, and to share electrical safety and efficiency tips.                         

While our regular elderly care and community outreach initiatives were mostly suspended amid the COVID pandemic, we continued to extend care and connect with the elderly through creative means, including "CAREnJOY Non-stop" to dispatch useful information feeds via mobile phone weekly, "CAREnJOY Call-to-Care" to make caring calls to single elders regularly, and "CAREnJOY Go-Go-Go" to provide material aids by delivering giftbags with daily and hygiene neccessities to elders in need.
