LU establishes partnership with Culture Homes and Forward Living to promote elderly services and research
As a caring University, LU has been actively engaging in various research and community projects to create a positive impact on the society at large, particularly for our senior citizens.
To further expand its services and networks, LU has formed a partnership with Culture Homes, an end-to-end integrated solution provider for elderly care and services, and Forward Living, a senior living community in Tuen Mun, to promote the study of various fields, including the implementation and research of traditional Chinese medicine practice; life-long learning for senior residents; research and development on ageing issues; student services and placement, as well as social innovation and gerontechnology projects.
An MOU Ceremony and Christmas Market X Lingnan University was successfully held on 20 December 2021. At the event, honorary guests, elder participants and their family witnessed LU Vice-President Prof Joshua Mok Ka Ho, Managing Director at Culture Homes Stephanie Law and Forward Living Managing Director Queenie Man signing the memorandum of understanding for the partnership. Guests also enjoyed a choir performance, festive food and booth games at the Christmas market place organized by LU students and staff of Culture Homes.
"This collaboration will foster lifelong learning for the elderly and promote positive and productive ageing, enabling them to stay active in the community,” said Prof Mok at the event. “It also provides students with good opportunities to serve the elderly and promote intergenerational communication and inclusion."
