Hong Kong is the region with the longest life expectancy. Ageing is often associated with chronic and/or acute condition(s), which greatly increased the older adults’ risk of admission. Studies have discovered that transitional care not only can strengthen rehabilitation, and also prevent readmission, reduce medical and family caregiving burden, and improve quality of life. With the support from The Hong Kong  Jockey Club Charities Trust, Sau Po Centre on Ageing, The University of Hong Kong, together with three non-governmental organisations (NGOs), have launched a project named Jockey Club Empowerment-based Transitional Care Project (JCETC). JCETC aims to holistically suport the recently discharged older adults, as well as their family caregivers by providing professional community rehabilitation support, so as to achieve the best care arrangements through innovative service model.
