Project by Hong Kong Red Cross
Hoping to assist the needy elders to develop a healthy living habit and prevent further deterioration of health condition, the Hong Kong Red Cross has developed Home-based Chronic Disease Management Service for the Elderly (CDME) since 2014. To further improve the CDME service quality, we hope to raise HK$50,000 and purchase the following items. 1) Purchase 20 hearing aids (HK$1,500 each) to help elders with hearing loss to better understand the diseases self-management skills shared by volunteers during home visits. 2) Purchase heat stroke prevention housewares and Mosquito repellent/ insect resistant agents for elderly with financial difficulty to improve home environment and prevent communicable diseases.
