AIP Scheme Summary

Rationale: Most of the elderly prefers to stay at their familiar homes for as long as
they wish. Our AIP scheme aims to strengthen the health of the elderly
residents and resilience to disability even when they are ageing in place.
Riding on the trusting relationship and nearby location, estate- based
social workers will reach out to the needy elderly residents and network
timely, accessible, affordable and appropriate services to them.

Service Target: Residents aged 60 or above living in HKHS rental housing estates

Service Model



The Housing Society is committed to improving the tenants’ quality of life complementary to property management service. With a relatively high rate of ageing population, the Housing Society has extended the Ageing-in-Place (AIP) Scheme to all of our 20 rental estates since its launch in 2012. Through mobilizing community participation, partnership with government departments, welfare organizations, healthcare service providers as well as academics, a one-stop service and concern network for elderly residents is established to fulfill their needs in housing, healthcare and social support, so as to help them age in place.
