  • The Jockey Club Charles Kao Brain Health Services, co-funded by the Trust and The Charles K Kao Foundation, is a pioneering outreach service to raise public awareness of dementia, provide screening, and make referrals for community care. It is a quadripartite partnership of CADENZA: A Jockey Club Initiative for Seniors, St. James’ Settlement, The Chinese University of Hong Kong and The Charles K Kao Foundation. 

    Over the next three years, the 16-tonne promotional truck, accommodating nurses and social workers with audio/visual health screening equipment and stationed for two months in each of the 18 districts, will provide preliminary tests for the elderly in the hope of diagnosing early-stage dementia patients and offering follow-up or referral services. 

    The three-year Programme comprises five components – consultation, public talks, centre-based workshops, follow-up service for patients and carers, and public education. Those who are found to have possible memory problems will be referred to government clinics, private medical practitioners and self-financing service providers. Carers will also be given dementia care tips and education kits. The Project is expected to benefit some 60,000 people.
