Shatin (including Shatin, Ma On Shan, Fo Tan and Tai Wai) is our pilot district. The service opens to all elders aged 60 or above (Prioritizing newly hospitals discharged elderly patients, elders living with spouse only and those living alone, and those with the needs of long-term care).
By providing service users with the appropriate assessment on their self-care capacity, health status, physical function, cognitive ability, and home environmental hazards, Gerontech products for mobility, electric nursing beds, and shower chair etc. will be prescribed for them. Their carers can also try out products that facilitate their caring and daily living in the home setting, to promote "aging at home." RST will also provide regular case visits and follow-ups as well as recommend more appropriate Gerontech products if there is any critical change in service users' situations.
