In view of the positive feedback of previous ICT Outreach Programmes, the OGCIO launched the third round of outreach programmes in 2017-18 to encourage the use of ICT among the elderly. The scope of the new round of the programmes were extended to cover elderly people with dementia with a view to helping them slow down the deterioration with the aid of digital technology.
The OGCIO openly invited applications from non-profit organisations between June and August 2017. Three applications have been selected for implementation from November 2017 to November 2018.
Institutionalised elderly, hidden elderly, elderly receiving day care centre and home care services and elderly people with dementia
