The seventh session of "Carers Support Workshops" titled "Introduction of District Resources" was held on 8 July 2017. Ms. MUI Hiu Man, Programme Secretary of Chinese YMCA of Hong Kong Chai Wan Neighbourhood Elderly Centre, introduced her Centre's services to carers, including community support services for the elderly, home care services, rehabilitation equipment rental services and a wide range of activities, for carers to grasp more information at district level.

Another "Carers Support Workshops" was held on the same afternoon. Dr. LAM See Yui was invited to talk about the key issues on taking care of patients with chronic diseases. Since most of the care recipients of the attending carers have diabetes mellitus and hypertension, in this session, Dr. LAM focused on raising the awareness of the carers on patients' changing conditions, including what to do when Hyperglycemic coma is encountered. Dr. LAM also introduced the services from various non-governmental organizations and encouraged them to make the most of community resources.
