Elderly care during the pandemic
As we battle through COVID-19, elderly people are amongst the most vulnerable members of our community. Granny Ho, a 90-year-old who suffers from chronic illnesses, is one example.
During the pandemic, registered nurse Ms Li and volunteers have been phoning Granny Ho two or three times a day to check in on her. Granny Ho is deeply touched by this gesture. In March, Swire Trust allocated funds to the South Kwai Chung Social Service to support the recruitment of more registered nurses for home visits, phone check-ups, and the distribution of face masks and sanitisers to the elderly.
