Yau On Lutheran Centre for the Elderly

Introduction

Since its establishment in 1985, Yau On Lutheran Centre for the Elderly beholds the idea of "Sense of belonging, sense of security, sense of worthiness" in providing support service to the elders in helping senior to settle and to prolong their stay in the community, and providing best-matched supportive service for carers.

In meeting the growing needs of Hong Kong elders, our centre successfully transited into a neighborhood elderly centre in 2003 and implemented a number of new services such as carer support service and elder outreach service, etc.  

To further enhance the service, our centre established “Hong Kong Red Cross Elderly Unit 22” in 2007 and the “Elder Academy” in 2008 respectively. In 2006 and 2010 the centre added activity venues, with one of the venues located below the centre, named “Yun On Hin”, allowing our centre to provide a more diverse elder service.

In 2018, the facilities of the Centre were refreshed under the "Improvement Programme of Elderly Centres" (IPEC)
