In view of encouraging achievements of ICT Outreach Programmes organised in 2013-14, the OGCIO initiated the second round of ICT Outreach Programmes in 2015-16. In addition to institutionalised and hidden elderly, the service scope was extended to cover elderly receiving day care centre services and home care services in order to help more elderly experience how ICT can enrich their life and facilitate active and healthy ageing.
The OGCIO openly invited proposals from non-profit organisations in February 2015. Out of the 11 project proposals received, three were selected for implementation from July 2015 to August 2016.
The sponsored organisations had visited 63 residential care homes and day care centres throughout the territory, and had arranged outreach visits to hidden elderly in the community and elderly receiving home care services. This round of programme has served over 2 000 elderly persons to teach and encourage them to use tablets and other mobile devices to broaden their social circles and spice up their life.
Institutionalised elderly, hidden elderly, and elderly receiving day care centre services and home care services.
