APIAS addresses caregiver support and happy ageing with Chinese medicine
The Asia-Pacific Institute of Ageing Studies (APIAS) of LU hosted the Care for Carers and Ageing in Place: The Way Forward for Carer Support Policy and Service Forum on 10 November, where Lingnan students presented their research for Ageing-in-Place and Care for Carers projects. Some 70 representatives from social welfare organisations, social enterprises and LU students attended to talk about future policies and practices for the needs of informal carers.
