Welcome to Y Silver Link’s home safety demonstration room

Y Silver Link sets up a demonstration room at HKYWCA’s headquarter in Central. It aims to increase the elder and their caregivers’ awareness on home safety issues through on-the-spot visits, experiential activities and interactive games. Visitors then know how to create a comfortable and safe living environment for elders, and promote ageing in place. 

The demonstration room follows the 7 principals of the universal design, and shows how furniture, devices, colours and lightings of the dining room, kitchen, bedroom and washroom can affect home safety. It also demonstrates minor changes that enhance the living environment of the elders. For example, adjusting the height of the bed makes it easier for the elderly to go to and leave the bed. Installing handrail on nightstand, and using heavier table with four legs provide support to elders when they stand up. Moreover, living aids like anti-skid carpets, raised toilet seat etc. are also useful for elders too. Visitors will be invited to participate in different interactive games to learn how to choose furniture that fits their size, lighting suitable for everyday life and for reading, and colours that lead to visual comfort.

Organisations providing elderly services are welcome to visit the demonstration room. For enquiries or making appointment, please call 3974 5279 or email to info@ysl.ywca.org.hk. Besides, the public may also visit during the opening hours. Our staff will introduce the facilities and you may try some of them. Some of the trendy and practical products can be purchased on-site.

Monday and Thursday: 9:30a.m. – 12:30p.m.
