About one-fifth of the senior population in Hong Kong falls each year. For the elderly, the consequence of falling is serious. Those seniors who fall are four times more likely to fall again. To prevent frequent falling, HOPE worldwide and the Hong Kong Housing Authority co-organized a campaign known as “Healthy Ageing for the Seniors Living in Public Housing Estates - Elderly Fall Prevention Day.” As always, the Hopkins’s volunteer team took part in this meaningful event on June 12th. Our volunteer team learned how to perform simple fall risk assessment tests before the event. On the day, we conducted risk assessment tests for senior residents at the Shek Kip Mei Housing Estate. Seniors with a high risk of falling are referred to the social welfare department for home assessment and installation of handrails and other equipment.
The importance of Elderly Fall Prevention should never be underestimated. If you have old people at home, please pay extra attention to the slippery floor in the bathroom and kitchen. Let’s work together to achieve "A happy old age with zero falls.”
Hopkins is proud of receiving the ISO9001:2008 certification from Bureau Veritas (BVQI), under the UKAS Quality Management, for professional training and education services.......
