Our Model

Holistic Support

To meet the current and future needs in elderly mental wellness, we adopt a holistic approach in prevention and early intervention. A collaborative stepped care model is developed to align community mental health and elderly services. We also focus on capacity building, providing training for social services professionals and young-olds in the community as peer supporters, to walk with our at-risk older adults through the journey to mental wellness.

At each of the four districts in this pilot programme, an Integrated Community Centre for Mental Wellness (ICCMW) works together with a District Elderly Community Centre (DECC) or an Integrated Home Care Service (IHCS) team to provide coordinated service to at-risk older adults.
