Life Harmony

Aging, Social Inclusion

The venture uses applied theatre to promote mental health among children who have special educational needs (SEN) and elders with emigrant families. The theatrical pieces themed on life and death education invite participants to explore the meaning of life. Through facilitating interactions in the theatre, the venture hopes to help SEN children establish self-worth and enable elders with emigrant families to feel respected and cared for by the community. Moreover, these arts experiences not only establish emotional connections between the generations but also build community support networks for them. The young and old will no longer be isolated by society as they build confidence through their relationships and provide support to each other.

Brainy Training Kit

Aging, Health Care

Dementia is an irreversible condition. By 2040, one in three people will be elderly. In 2039, more than 330,000 people in Hong Kong are expected to be diagnosed with dementia. With a team of registered occupational therapists, Brainy Training Kits uses their professional knowledge to design a training kit for people with dementia. The goal is to slow the progression of the disease and alleviate the burden on caregivers and medical staff.
