Rhythm Garden Lutheran Centre for the Elderly

Introduction

Our centre, previously known as “Choi Hung Lutheran Centre for the Elderlywhich started to provide recreational and developmental activities to Choi Hung elders since the beginning of November of 1978. In 2001, the Centre was relocate in Rhythm Garden to continue our elder service and officially renamed the centre as “Rhythm Garden Lutheran Centre for the Elderly”.  

The centre 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.

In 2015, the facilities of the Centre were refreshed under the "Improvement Programme of Elderly Centres" (IPEC).
