Elderly Service

With the rapid aging of our population, the demand for services for the elderly have been increasing. Po Leung Kuk in the eighties began to formulate development plans for elderly services, and now operating a total of 69 elderly service units.


In 2014, 14% of the total Hong Kong population, i.e. 1,070,000 people, were aged 65 and above. This number is projected to increase to 36%, i.e.2,580,000 by 2064. With a rapidly ageing population, ensuring the adequate provision of quality care services for the elderly has become an important priority for Po Leung Kuk.
