The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust has approved HK$ 380 million for a five-year project (2009-2013) entitled "CADENZA: A Jockey Club Initiative for Seniors". The purpose of the project is to revolutionize the way society views its elders, the current mode of care for the elderly, existing services and facilities, and the excessive reliance on the medical model of care. The project has launched several programmes, such as "CADENZA Symposium 2013: Matching Technology to Needs", "Brain Health Game Design" and "Elderly Financial Management-Press Conference".
