The Institute of Active Ageing (IAA) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Squina "Loving Heart" Volunteer Team jointly conduct a "Home Safety Project" for five years (2010-2015) to improve the living standard of the elderly. The project will provide home environment assessments and improvements (e.g. small-scale home renovation works) for home-owners who are above 60 years of age, living in dilapidated homes with poor fittings. Two hundred such homes of elderly associated with the Po Leung Kuk Elderly Center are the target beneficiaries.
