LEE Tin Yan
Mr LEE Tin Yan has been working as a social worker for 18 years in the field of family, elderly, school social work, community development and singleton hostel service. In the recent years, he focuses on the management and development of elderly services. The services under his supervision include day care centre for the elderly, district elderly community centre, neighbourhood elderly centre and care & attention home for the elderly. Besides, he also participates in the public communication and image building work of his agency.
Having been raised by his grandparents, Herman CHAN is deeply committed to improving the livelihood of the elderly in Hong Kong and promoting empathy for senior citizens is his goal. Witnessing firsthand the disconnect between the generations in today’s society, Herman set up Eldpathy, the purpose of which is to develop young people’s understanding towards seniors. Eldpathy also advocates “active ageing”, by recruiting Elderly Instructors for Elderly Simulation Programmes.Facing financial challenges to set up his organisation, Herman did not give up. Since 2012, Eldpathy has organised over 800 activities, allowing around 30,000 participants to experience how life changes with aging through the Elderly Simulation Programmes. Around 30 Elderly Instructors were trained to interact with the younger counterparts to enhance their mutual understanding.
