In the past 70 years, Hong Kong Housing Society has been assuming the role of Hong Kong’s “Housing Laboratory”. As early as in the 1990s, the Housing Society has envisioned the housing needs brought by an ageing population, thus launched the “Senior Citizen Residences Scheme
” in 1999 to provide an option integrating housing, recreation, medical and care services under one roof for the elderly. In the past two decades, the Housing Society has spared no efforts in promoting “Ageing-in-Place”, and launched the first non-subsidised quality elderly housing project, The Tanner Hill
2019 marks the 20th anniversary of HKHS’s efforts in elderly housing development. This seminar aims to gather industry professionals to exchange ideas on housing, planning and related supports for the ageing population in Hong Kong. The speakers will share their views and experience from the perspectives of policy-making, planning and project development, and explore the way forward with the participants.
