This session was a visit to the Elderly Resources Centre of the Hong Kong Housing Society situated in Yau Ma Tei. All 10 places were filled by CUHK students who had got a chance to tour around the MIND-friendly Home Exploration Centre. Divided into three groups, participants listened to the introduction of the staff and the elderly volunteers of the Centre, as well as joined the experiential games, to gain an understanding of the daily challenges encountered by the people with dementia and their caretakers. Besides, they learnt about how a friendly housing design for the aforementioned people may facilitate “aging in place”.
