JC JoyAge



Introduction

JC JoyAge: Jockey Club Holistic Support Project for Elderly Mental Wellness (JC JoyAge) was initiated and funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust.  Being one of the service units serving Kwun Tong District, Hong Kong Christian Service is launching the Project from 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2023. The Project adopted a stepped care model of integration, facilitating the integration of community elderly service and mental wellness service within the district. According to the severity of depressive symptoms and risk level of the elders, it provides standardised prevention and intervention so that their resilience and mental wellness could be enhanced. 

Objectives

  • To achieve effective outreaching, engagement, and prevention of depression for at-risk older adults with the collaborative stepped care model. 
  • To build the social capital on promoting mental wellness among older adults by providing trainings for professionals and community stakeholders.
  • To raise public awareness and mental health literacy among family members, neighbours and the larger community by encouraging early assistance for at-risk older adults.
