Western Garden Neighbourhood Elderly Centre
Established in March 1990, the Western Garden Neighbourhood Elderly Centre (formerly a Social Centre prior to its upgrade in October 2014) provides a variety of high quality services for the elderly, their carers, and the wider community of the Central and Western District. The range of comprehensive services that the Centre provides align with the “aging-in-place” objective, striving to strengthen the support networks for the elderly, to widen their social circles and to, as a result, enhance their physical and mental well-being. Meanwhile, we also encourage our elderly members and people in the community to join our volunteer teams, making best use of their talents, skills, and leisure time to contribute to the building of a caring and inclusive community for all.
