Dear MEL Institute, we are evaluating the needs of elderly carers in Hong Kong. And we found when the family couldn’t look after the older adult for some reason, they usually got such and had no idea about what to do next. Could you please tell me some support services for this situation? Whom can the carers turn to for help?

They may approach social workers for recommendations and arrangements for older adults during this period. There are many communities support services that can help them when needed, e.g., the respite service in residential care homes for the elderly (RCHEs) to take care of older adults during carers’ absence.

Could you please give us a clue about how service users apply for the occupational therapy service of SRACP? As we want to evaluate the convenience for applicants to get access to this service.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
