Trophy for the 10th Eldercare Innovation Awards 2022


A group of four OT students at RS, in collaboration with the Hong Kong Housing Society, won the “Best Dementia Care Programme” award of the 10th Eldercare Innovation Awards 2022 organised by the Ageing Asia, a Singapore-based industry alliance on the business of ageing.

The 10th Eldercare Innovation Awards 2022, Asia Pacific’s most prestigious recognition awards in the ageing industry, aim to provide an annual recognition to organisations in Asia Pacific countries that demonstrate eldercare innovation in their business, operational and service models to change the way seniors age. The Awards received over 100 entry submissions from 15 countries. Our OT students’ winning product, named “Shop and Go” Brain Health Workshop, is a chess-like game designed to help older adults with dementia to train up their cognitive skills such as memory and orientation.

Congratulations to the four winning students, and thanks to Prof. Kenneth Fong, their submission supervisor, Mr Tony Wong, Subject Leader of RS4280 Enabling Occupation: Home and Community Practice, and the teaching team of RS4280, for their expert supervision and patient guidance!
