Senior Citizen Residences Scheme

The Housing Society has been providing housing for the lower-income elderly in its rental estates since the 60s. In the face of the ageing population and with the support of Government, the Housing Society embarked on the Senior Citizen Residences (SEN) Scheme in the late 90s to provide middle-income elderly with residence integrating housing, recreation, medical and care services.

SEN, the first of its kind in Hong Kong that adopts the innovative concept of “lease for life” along with “one-stop” support services, enables the elderly residents to enjoy “ageing in place”. Two pilot projects, Jolly Place in Tseung Kwan O and Cheerful Court in Jordan Valley, were completed in 2003 and 2004 respectively, providing a total of 576 units. With the waiver of land premium, income and asset limits were imposed on SEN which targeted at the middle-class elderly.

Incorporating the concept of “universal design”, both projects embody the philosophy of “housing with care” and are equipped with purposely-designed facilities to cope with the changing needs of the elderly. These include swimming pool, gymnasium, restaurant, library, podium garden, care and attention home, as well as medical services. With the establishment of our own Elderly Care Team which comprises professional and healthcare staff, the Housing Society provides “one-stop” services for the tenants.

The projects under the Senior Citizen Residences Scheme currently managed by the Housing Society are Cheerful Court and Jolly Place.
