Wing Hong exists to promote equal opportunities for the Chinese elders in accessing various social; health; welfare and housing services. The purpose of Wing Hong is to improve the health and well-being of the Chinese elderly who live in the Glasgow area. The objectives are to enhance the quality of service users’ life by reducing loneliness and isolation; maintaining and improving their independence. The Centre also promotes healthy lifestyle choices and raising awareness of the needs of the Chinese elderly.
Wing Hong serves the needs of the members by combining the provision of daycare re-sources with community facilities where they can meet with other Chinese people. This allows them to have lunch together, organise various activities which enables the members to participate in the social, economic and cultural life of the city. Wing Hong also promotes good inter-generational relationships, where some of the activities involve the families of the service users. In some cases, our staff work closely with family members regarding major decisions such as admission to sheltered housing and nursing homes, terminal illness and long-term hospitalisation.
