Neighbourhood Elderly Centre Service
Through providing community support services at the neighbourhood level, we pledge to assist elders to remain living in the community and to enjoy a healthy, active and dignified life at an advanced age. We also encourage the elderly to actively engage in activities and motivate the general public to create a caring community.
