BScG provides students possessing an associate degree or a higher diploma with a progression pathway. I graduated in Higher Diploma in Social Work and am interested in the elderly care field. The comprehensive curriculum of BScG equips me with knowledge and skills in elderly health and social care services. In contrast to my previous learning experience, this programme focuses on not only social services but also elderly care services. The practicum and site visits have also enhanced my practical skills and increased my understanding of frontline services. I am therefore better equipped to take up challenges in the future workplace.

距离毕业还有半年时间,时光飞逝,我虽然还在实习当中,但已体验到现时人口老化的严重性。老年学课程全面,让我学懂如何在身心社灵上,为长者提供合适的服务。我期望将来有更多年轻人投身社福界,给长者一个舒适快乐的晚年。

不知不觉已经过了一年半,回想当初入读老年学的初心,直到现在都没有改变。老年学课程教授我的不仅是知识,更给予我实习机会,让我学习如何从长者的角度思考,与他们相处,了解他们的需要,亦让我思考如何给长者愉快和舒适的生活。

学生交换计划是老年学理学学士课程的一个主要选修科目,约有一半应届毕业生有机会参加此计划到境外大学交流学习,加深对内地及海外不同国家的长者照顾系统的认识,并亲身体验各地文化,了解不同的老年学教育与实践方法。学院会赞助75%的机票及住宿费用,以及旅程中所有预先安排的讲课和实习参观费用。

I'm pleased to be one of the students who visited the National Cheng Kung University. It's a precious opportunity to experience the development of aged care policies and services in Taiwan. Given the similar context of social development, we had fruitful sharing with teachers and students from the host institution on local aged care systems through different activities of the exchange programme. Also, we have learnt different innovative and creative delivery models of aged care services from the host institution through different kinds of visits, which can be integrated into our local services.

The aged care system of Taiwan dedicated to providing quality aged care services to older people particularly inspired me. Healthcare practitioners emphasise on family’s participation during the recovery of a client. Therefore, different measures are established to facilitate family’s participation. For example, in the geriatric ward, the primary family caregiver is required to participate in compulsory training to make sure that the client receives the best care after discharge. I was impressed by their belief in the significant impacts of family support on the clients’ recovery.

I joined the student exchange programme to the Hua Mei Training Academy of the Tsao Foundation in Singapore. The programme was tight in its schedule, yet fruitful for our learning. During the programme, we participated in different learning activities, including lectures, tutorials, visits to health and social aged care settings and practicum in the centre. The most interesting thing that I observed during the exchange was the Dementia-friendly Community Project in Singapore, which provides training to different levels of people in the community, thus allowing people with dementia to live safely in the area. We learnt a lot through the programme, especially the systems and delivery models of health and social care services for older people in Singapore. The experience inspired us on the core elements of the best practices in aged care, which have significantly contributed to our future career development. I hope more students can be benefited from the exchange programme.

This two-year gerontology programme brought me lots of fruitful learning experiences and equipped me with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills. All teachers, serving as guides, counsellors and facilitators, always gave us the greatest support. They also provided many opportunities for us to broaden our horizons, for instance, site visits, graduate sharing and gerontological practicum in different aged care settings. One of the memorable experiences was traveling abroad to learn about the development of aged care services outside Hong Kong. The School has done many great things for us and I will never forget what I have learnt and obtained here. I am proud to be one of the students of the gerontology programme, and the learning experiences motivate me to pursue a career in the aged care field in the future. Last by not least, I would like to thank the programme and the teachers for extending my knowledge of gerontology, improving my thinking skills and preparing me for my future career development.

I am extremely glad to be one of the students of the BScG programme. All the memories in BScG sweeten my university life and the learning experience is greatly significant for my future career development. With the guidance of professional and experienced teachers, I have been equipped with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills of gerontology in lectures. Small group teaching developed wonderful teacher-student relationships and we shared many happiness and excitement together. Besides, the gerontological practicum gave me an opportunity to apply the knowledge into practice in various aged care settings, and enabled me to obtain the necessary work experience. Last semester, I also went on an exchange to learn different innovative aged care practices and explore the development of aged care services in overseas.

This two-year learning experience is fruitful and unforgettable. I really appreciate the teachers who educated us wholeheartedly. Whenever we encountered difficulties, they always supported us and helped us to solve them. BScG is a big family and my connection with the School will not be broken even after graduation.

除了在课堂上学习理论知识和技能外,学院的教授还安排我们到不同机构进行老年学实习,使能更深入地了解长者照顾服务。期间,我不但可以从旁观察安老服务机构的运作模式,以及处理突发事件的应变技巧,更重要的是可以了解机构内护士、社工、物理治疗师、职业治疗师、营养师等不同专科的专业人员如何互相衷诚合作,以积极正面的态度,竭力为「老友记」提供最优质和最适切的安老服务。他们是我学习的好榜样。
梁善姚小姐2014年老年学理学学士毕业生

「读书时读书,游戏时游戏」— 这句话用来形容我们过去一年的校园生活最为贴切。过去一年,我们接触到老年学的不同范畴,同学们都很努力地学习与长者健康及社区照顾需要有关的基本概念,以及与长者、照护者、家人及其他专业人员沟通和相处的技巧。我们亦有机会接触到学院实验室内的先进仪器,同学们都很专心聆听老师的讲解;对于新奇的仪器,例如协助扶抱长者的仪器,同学们的表现尤其雀跃。课堂以外,同学之间的互动和交流,不但有助深化课堂上所学的知识,更可增进情谊;因此在课余时间,我们也会进行各种联谊活动。
