Subject Talk Series on Life and Death Education 2023 : Taking Care of Aged Parents: A Prefiguration of One's Ageing

Past Activities

A Cry for Help – from Carers of Seriously Ill Patients (Rescheduled)
Date & Time: 2023/12/17 (Sunday) 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Venue: Hong Kong Central Library (Lecture Theatre, G/F)
Description: During the pandemic in Hong Kong, many vital social support services and respite options for elderly were unavailable, resulting in immense pressure on home-bound and seriously ill elderly patients, as well as their carers. The problem is compounded if the patient was sent to isolation facilities. Are their cries for help understood and adequate support provided to them?
Fantasy or Reality – Ageing Gracefully
Date & Time: 2023/11/19 (Sunday) 03:00 p.m. - 05:00 p.m.
Venue: Hong Kong Central Library (Lecture Theatre, G/F)
Description: When one's hair turns silvery grey, footsteps become unsteady, memory and hearing fading, with many other signs of advancing years creeping in - would one be still able to live life to the full, cheerfully moving into a new phase of one's life?
A Cry for Help – from Carers of Seriously Ill Patients (Cancelled)
Date & Time: 2023/10/8 (Sunday) 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Venue: Hong Kong Central Library (Lecture Theatre, G/F)
Description: During the pandemic in Hong Kong, many vital social support services and respite options for elderly were unavailable, resulting in immense pressure on home-bound and seriously ill elderly patients, as well as their carers.

Trapped in Love
Date & Time: 2023/9/10 (Sunday) 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Venue: Hong Kong Central Library (Lecture Theatre, G/F)
Description: Persons with dementia suffer from the loss of cognitive abilities, impacting not only their daily behaviour but also emotions. When their carers feel exhausted to cope with the demands on physical care and emotional support, would there be any alternatives available? To send them to nursing home? What if they refuse to follow suit? What if other family members have strong reservations to do so? Would there be any ways out?
Filial Piety Re-invent: Leaving Care Responsibilities for Professionals.
Date & Time: 2023/8/12 (Saturday) 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Venue: Hong Kong Central Library (Lecture Theatre, G/F)
Description: Traditional Chinese families felt that moving seniors in the family into institutional care is unfilial. Adult children should keep elderly and frail elderly parents at home as far as possible. With improved health care, frail older adults may have to endure prolonged period of high dependency before death. This symposium involves discussion among professionals and family caregivers on the new thoughts on filial piety in the modern world.
