「你知道腦退化症是什麼嗎？你認為腦退化症人士是怎樣的？」承蒙香港賽馬會慈善信託基金捐助，賽馬會耆智園於2016年10月至 2018年9月推行「賽馬會『腦動耆跡』計劃」，發掘願意為腦退化症人士提供協助的市民，使腦退化症人士於社區的各個角落也可以得到協助，享受更愉快的生活。我們將分享計劃內容及如何透過兩位重要的角色 —— 「腦友寶寶」和「耆跡天使」推動建立腦退化症友善社區。此外，亦會介紹「尋耆跡」手機應用程式，希望透過此應用程式擴大尋找走失腦退化症人士的網絡，加強社會對腦退化症人士的支援。
Speech: “#I am Dementia Angel!” – Jockey Club Dementia Friendly Communities’ Campaign
“What do you think about dementia and your perception of persons with dementia?” With the generous support from the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, JCCPA organizes the "Jockey Club 'Dementia Friendly Communities' Campaign" (DFC Campaign) between October 2016 and September 2018. The DFC Campaign aims to strengthen the supporting network in the communities so that people with dementia can live safely. We would like to strengthen participants' understanding on dementia, build up a strong community network in finding and supporting missing persons with dementia, promote a "dementia friendly" culture in different sectors and cultivate a "dementia friendly" community.
In this talk, we would like to share the knowledge of dementia care and how our two campaign characters “D Bobo” and “DFC Angel” help building a dementia friendly communities. Also, we will introduce our APP which is used for finding the missing persons with dementia (Hong Kong and Traditional Chinese only). The family caregivers can pre-register the information of the family member with dementia and report lost. Also, “Dementia Angel” can register and provide help to find the persons with dementia. It hopes to expand the network of finding the missing persons with dementia so as to encourage support to the beloved one with dementia and their family. Please come to join us~

Speech: Dementia Friendly Community for All
Persons with dementia are increasing in numbers with the greying population of Hong Kong. The entire community must be engaged in promoting positive awareness of dementia, reducing stigmatization, and collaborating in building a dementia friendly environment. In recent years, the Hong Kong Alzheimer's Disease Association actively advocates medical-social collaboration and enhances the primary care sector in early detection, diagnosis and intervention for persons with dementia and their family in the community. In concert with the global actions of Dementia Friends, we have engaged corporates progressively in the movement. The Way Forwards in our community in dementia care will be discussed in the light of the Expert Report 2017.

Speech: The Role of Arts in Creative Ageing, Better Health, and Social Inclusion
It is no surprise for the concept of ‘Creative Ageing’ to be more established in western parts of the world than it is in Hong Kong, for even the coupling of ‘Arts’ with ‘Health’ seems a notion that has only just begun to gain traction here. At the cusp of our society’s ageing crises, Hong Kong has awakened to the call for a growing emphasis on developing preventative policy measures simultaneously with the remedial. Drawing from our most recent publication entitled ‘Celebrating the Inclusive Power of Arts’ (Our Hong Kong Foundation, 2018), this session expands on how the agency of arts has shown to be a form of social and health innovation that renders synergistic and therapeutic benefits to the elderly demographic in Hong Kong, especially those with Dementia. The presentation will also explore some developments of creative ageing that are happening internationally, to inform how arts may be more resourcefully and proactively adopted into Hong Kong’s city fabric and its community, so that ageing can be enjoyed creatively and positively.
