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。

「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;对於新奇的仪器,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。

在过往一年,我很荣幸担任老年学系会主席。系会的成立是为了团结老年学各级同学,鼓励互相扶持,并分享学习和实习的经验。成立系会是一个难得的学习机会,当中有苦有乐。由於系会是第一届,我们一班庄员对上庄的事情都特别用心、起劲,再繁重的庄务都能顺利完成。当系会的会章获代表会通过、并宣布可以正式试庄的那一刻,大家都非常感动,这一幕至今仍深深地印在我的脑海中。现在,我期待系会的一连串迎新活动顺利展开,可以帮助新入学的师弟师妹们更快地融入大学生活。

CHEUNG Ki Chung, Ryan (President of Gerontology Society)

This is Ryan, the President of the Gerontology Society. Some students might doubt about why taking up the role. For me, it is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to utilise my potential in the Nethersole School of Nursing, where an ideal learning environment and sufficient resources are offered. In the beginning, I tried to deal with every task by myself; however, when I could not overcome difficulties with my own abilities, my committee members stood by me and made concerted efforts to face the challenges. Thanks to them, I believe no matter how hard the challenges are, they will make me better, not bitter. 

In the last couple of months, a wide variety of events for all gerontology students were organised by our Society, such as the Photo Day for graduates and the Orientation Camp for freshmen. In the former event, we had to stay up all night blowing colourful balloons and making delicious dishes for the graduates. In the latter one, our preparations started a few months in advance in order to organise a perfect camp for our freshmen. Another unforgettable event was the BScG 6th Anniversary cum Spring Dinner, which gathered all graduates in the past 6 years and current students of the Gerontology programme. The event was the first of its kind giving us such an amazing and rewarding experience. During the event, graduates shared their study and working experiences with Gerontology students as their brothers and sisters – What a wonderful family! 

Not only does the Gerontology Society serve students, but it also contributes to the society by providing community services. Taking the Mooncake Charity as an example, the Gerontology Society, in collaboration with a charity organisation in Hong Kong, is going to arrange home visits to older adults living in the community. We try to show our love to these senior citizens, like what a family does. 

Being the President of the Gerontology Society is one of the fondest memories in my university life. Hopefully the incoming freshmen will be part of the Gerontology Society and share our happiness.

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.

学生:黄佩瑜同学 (2017年毕业生)

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.
