Activity Description:
Topic: Brain Health in the Ageing - Importance of Post-diagnostic Support and Self-management Programme for People with Cognitive Impairment

Hong Kong is facing the ageing population and people living here have the longest life expectancy in the world. Physical health is not the only concern among the citizens but also brain health. Keeping well in cognitive functioning and early detection of dementia is vital for everyone to address in contemporary society. With the literature reviews and findings of international journals in brain health, how to prevent the risk factors of having dementia and make early interventions are highly recommended. People may not avoid getting old but people can live well with their cognitive decline if there is a proper post-diagnostic support programme in dementia care. Through understanding the key elements and concept of our empowerment programme, people will be familiar with the 4-steps of self-management model, including "Review", "Learn", "Plan" and "Act".
Please join us if you would like to know more about brain health and how to support people with mild cognitive impairment or mild level of dementia in Hong Kong.
