Tackling Ageing in Hong Kong – A Whole-of-Society Approach

In the bustling city of Hong Kong, one in three individuals aged over 80 suffer from dementia. Mrs Patricia Lau, CEO of Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Welfare Council, brings to light the pressing challenge of caring for the elderly with dementia. She champions innovative solutions like the use of AI-driven mobile app that offers respite for Seniors who experience crippling knee pain. Patricia extends a call to entrepreneurs to engage themselves in lives of the elderly and learn of their pain points, in order to co-create lasting solutions that benefit our ageing community.
