Jockey Club Discharge Support and Rehabilitation Programme

The Jockey Club Discharge Support and Rehabilitation Programme aims to help people with dementia to rehabilitate and adapt to home life after hospitalisation. The programme comprises three plans to meet the different needs of those with dementia.


The programme is devised to help people rehabilitate and adapt to living and ageing at home after hospitalisation.

Following the success of phase one of the Jockey Club Discharge Support and Rehabilitation Programme, JCCPA has received another donation from the Jockey Club Charities Trust to embark on phase two of the programme. The concept of the programme is based on the “Confinement Rehabilitation Programme” proposed by JCCPA Advisory Board member Ms Angelina Luk, a solicitor. The programme aims to train foreign domestic helpers to help family members care for a discharged elderly person, much like a confinement attendant who helps new mothers get acquainted with the tasks of caring for a new-born. The foreign domestic helpers in the “Confinement Rehabilitation Programme” have undergone rigorous elderly care training to become a confinement attendant to help the family members with daily care of a discharged elderly patient, as well as provide rehabilitation training to speed up the recovery and continue positive ageing at home.
