In 1997, the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administration Region has made “Care for the Elderly” a Strategic Policy Objective of the government. The objective is to improve the quality of life of the elderly population. The Elderly Commission was established in the same year and its main task is to provide advice to the Government in the formulation of a comprehensive policy in caring for elders. Commission members include professionals from elder related services and other sectors, academics and community leaders.
