1. What is Link up-an-Elderly about:
A lot of elderlies are forced to stay home because of the pandemic. They were cut off from their normal social circle. They don’t have good skills nor access to technology, either they could not afford cellular data plans, or they are not adept at using apps that are simple to us, but difficult to them. As time goes by, some even lose momentum to reach out. We would like to invite you and your child(ren) to pick up the phone to call them, ask about how they are, their physical conditions, make friends with them, share your love and care with them.
2. How will Link up-an-Elderly be arranged:
You and your children will be linked up with 1-2 elderlies, whom you will call. You will receive the phone number of the elderly(ies) along with the basic information about the elderly, including their genders, ages, who are they living with (i.e. with their spouse/ siblings/ children or living alone, and most elders joining the programme are either living alone or with their spouse), special condition （such as dementia or other illnesses）.
We will pass on you and your child(ren)’s name, and the telephone number that you will be calling from, your child(ren) age, and most important a “secret code” that the elderly can recognize that you are calling for the community center.
Why do we need a secret code: To prevent the elderly from falling into fraud phone calls.
3. When will I Link up-an-Elderly:
Registration: Registration will be opened on 26 April 2022 10:00am via this Google link.
Briefing: Social Workers from the community center will conduct an online briefing on at 10:00am 7 May (Saturday).
Period to call the elderly: 11-21 May (Weekdays before 5:00pm and Saturday morning). Generally elderly reside early, and will start preparing for their meals at 5:00pm, and some family members visit the elderly on Sundays. You can arrange to call each elderly 1 - 2 times during this period and it would be best to schedule the call at least 5 days apart.
4. Who should register:
Those who would like pass on your love and care to the elderlies, and can communicate fluently in Cantonese and be able to converse in Cantonese on phone. It could be either one or both the participating parent and student.
For students and/or parents who cannot communicate in Cantonese but able to speak in fluent Mandarin, the community center can arrange a few elderlies that can speak mandarin.
5.0 How many elderly will we link-up this time?
6.0 What will you receive after completing the Google Form?
1, An automated email reply the Google Form immediately
2, A confirmation email from PTA a few days after, if your registration is successful
