Age itself is a risk factor for some physical and psychiatric disorders with great social implications. On the physical side, the increased prevalence of conditions such as hypertension and cardiovascular disorders or diabetes has been documented. Similarly, in relation to psychiatric disorder, it is clear that age is the main risk factor for highly disabling conditions such as dementia in general and Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia in particular. Disability due all such conditions is an inevitable corollary, resulting in the “frailty” problem described in the previous section. However, the potential of social factors in the etiology of these conditions should not be minimized. For example, it is now clear that poor education is a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease, and, on the contrary, an active lifestyle is protective.

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?
