Hundred Elders (長者百人)

Dynacare initiated this project to videotape and record the life stories of 100 elders in 2012-2013. These stories are then broadcasted to the public on TV and online platform. The experience and wisdom of the elders can therefore be passed on to the next generation. Also, through understanding their stories, inter-generational relationships can be improved and can help elders lead a meaningful life.
