Programme Leaflet:
 
Following the ageing population, better services and supporting facilities are required to facilitate life enhancement and positivity among older adults and build up an age-friendly community, from housing accommodation, transportation, health management, leisure activities, senior volunteering, asset management to learning courses and so on.
 
The programme aims to nurture professionals in gerontology. The programme content is multi-disciplinary, covering the required knowledge and skills in a wider diversity of contexts in multi-disciplines, such as community support, primary care, and other relevant sectors related to the ageing population.
