Positive Ageing & Elderly Care
Jockey Club Age-friendly City
Here’s a question: how will you pass your time when you are in your eighties? In Kwun Tong, Uncle Pui-yuk, a sprightly 86-year-old, is busy enjoying a second career.
Uncle Pui-yuk is an ambassador of the Jockey Club Age-friendly City Project. Having worked as an electrician when he’s younger, today he teams up with friendly shops that he found in Kwun Tong to help the elderly who need home repairs.
In Lei Tung Estate, Ap Lei Chau, 80-year-old Auntie Mui is a regular in the Jockey Club Age-friendly City Project – Walk the City for Active Ageing. She stays fit and curious about local happenings from checking out every nook and cranny in her local neighbourhood through visiting the age-friendly walking routes with regional characteristics. "We’ve had a lot of fun being out and about, checking out new spots and making new friends,” Auntie Mui said.
