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.

除了在課堂上學習理論知識和技能外,學院的教授還安排我們到不同機構進行老年學實習,使能更深入地了解長者照顧服務。期間,我不但可以從旁觀察安老服務機構的運作模式,以及處理突發事件的應變技巧,更重要的是可以了解機構內護士、社工、物理治療師、職業治療師、營養師等不同專科的專業人員如何互相衷誠合作,以積極正面的態度,竭力為「老友記」提供最優質和最適切的安老服務。他們是我學習的好榜樣。

「讀書時讀書,遊戲時遊戲」— 這句話用來形容我們過去一年的校園生活最為貼切。過去一年,我們接觸到老年學的不同範疇,同學們都很努力地學習與長者健康及社區照顧需要有關的基本概念,以及與長者、照護者、家人及其他專業人員溝通和相處的技巧。我們亦有機會接觸到學院實驗室內的先進儀器,同學們都很專心聆聽老師的講解;對於新奇的儀器,例如協助扶抱長者的儀器,同學們的表現尤其雀躍。課堂以外,同學之間的互動和交流,不但有助深化課堂上所學的知識,更可增進情誼;因此在課餘時間,我們也會進行各種聯誼活動。
陳淑芬老年學理學學士課程二年級學生,2013-2014

在過往一年,我很榮幸擔任老年學系會主席。系會的成立是為了團結老年學各級同學,鼓勵互相扶持,並分享學習和實習的經驗。成立系會是一個難得的學習機會,當中有苦有樂。由於系會是第一屆,我們一班莊員對上莊的事情都特別用心、起勁,再繁重的莊務都能順利完成。當系會的會章獲代表會通過、並宣布可以正式試莊的那一刻,大家都非常感動,這一幕至今仍深深地印在我的腦海中。現在,我期待系會的一連串迎新活動順利展開,可以幫助新入學的師弟師妹們更快地融入大學生活。

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.

學生:黃珮瑜同學 (2017年畢業生)

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.
