Welfare chief visits elderly home

Secretary for Labour & Welfare Dr Law Chi-kwong today visited Forward Living in Tuen Mun, the first purpose-built residential care home for the elderly under a scheme that encourages provision of such premises in new private developments.   The elderly care home started operation in June, providing 191 residential care places for seniors.   Accompanied by its management team, Dr Law first took a closer look at anti-epidemic measures in the elderly home which is equipped with an air monitoring system for regular testing of air quality.   He then received a briefing on the application of gerontechnology in the premises, including the smart Elderly Homes Management System linking various facilities for one-stop drug management and monitoring of residents’ health.   Other applications include the provision of nutritional soft meals for seniors with swallowing difficulties, the installation of rehabilitation and cognitive training equipment as well as care and antibacterial furniture.   Under the scheme, the relevant elderly home premises will be exempted from paying the premium under land transactions on the condition that the developers are willing to accept certain lease conditions to ensure the delivery of such premises.   The proposed projects must also be supported by the Social Welfare and relevant departments.   The land transaction involving Forward Living was made at the end of 2012.   Dr Law said the Government would continue to increase residential care places for the elderly by adopting a multipronged approach and maximising land use, as well as encouraging participation by more private enterprises in providing quality elderly home services.

Railway settlement exceeds limit

The construction works of a relocation project in Kowloon have been suspended after a settlement monitoring checkpoint exceeded the limit, the Government said today.   The project relocates supporting operational facilities of Tsim Sha Tsui Fire Station Complex, Fire Services Club and other fire services accommodations to To Wah Road in Kowloon.   The Government explained that the readings recorded in a settlement monitoring checkpoint installed inside the railway tunnel between Kowloon Station and Olympic Station of the MTR Tung Chung Line had reached 20.27mm on September 7. The preset trigger level for works suspension is 20mm.   For the sake of prudence, the Mass Transit Railway Corporation suspended relevant works within the railway protection area on the same day.   The Buildings Department and the Architectural Services Department deployed staff to inspect the affected railway tunnel and confirmed that it is structurally safe.   The Electrical & Mechanical Services
