Details :

Being Hong Kong’s “housing laboratory”, Hong Kong Housing Society (“HKHS”) has been devoting significant resources in preparing for the ageing population. HKHS have been piloting various affordable and quality elderly housing projects to meet the changing needs of our people, promoting the concepts of “ageing in place” and “intergenerational living”.

Participants will visit three mock-up flat prototypes set up by HKHS to demonstrate accessibility and adaptability in the unit designs of our Public Rental Housing (PRH), Subsidised Sale Flats (SSF) and Senior Citizen Residences Scheme (SEN) for exploration and examination purposes.  The enhanced sustainability, liveability, manoeuvrability and space planning in the flats’ design will allow people of all disabilities to age in place, thus delaying their needs to move into Residential Care Homes for the Elderly.
