Youth Empowered: Play Board Game with the Elderly in Chai Wan

Description: Most of Hong Kong's elderly have had to self-isolate for much of this year—the effects of which can lead to anxiety, depression, and even cognitive decline. Help from the city’s volunteers is needed to support the mental health of these vulnerable individuals.

Our student leaders are on a mission to promote social connection and emotional well-being for the elderly supported by Harmony Garden Lutheran Centre for the Elderly.

The program will feature smaller-scale in-person activities and visits and outings once restrictions allow. Young volunteers are invited to be part of their launch initiative by hosting board game sessions with the elderly who have slight dementia symptoms.  Instructions of the games will be provided on-site. 
 

Volunteer roles:

 

  • Volunteers will work in small teams (preferably two people in each team) to play board games with elderly citizens with slight dementia symptoms. 
  • The activity consists of a 90-minute briefing and the actual service time. During the event, volunteers will chat and play board games with the elderly.
