Hondao cares for the elderly with disabilities, dementia, or any health condition. Many elderly individuals confront profound difficulties, including living alone, economic hardships, emotional stress, and mental and physical illness. Our focus extends beyond the elderly's personal challenges, such as "physical, mental, social engagement, financial security", encompassing broader social issues such as "constructing a suitable and complete care support network, and subverting social stereotypes".
Hondao takes care of nearly 10,000 seniors who live alone, are disadvantaged, or are disabled each year. We provide year-round home-based services, community-based services, and program-based services to meet the various needs of seniors. These include home visits, long-term care services, hot meal services, accompanied shopping trips or delivery of supplies, accompanied medical appointments, health promotion activities, and accompanied dream fulfillment services, among other diverse services.
In 2022, Hondao performed 36,519 home visits; cared for 1,276 elderly individuals with disabilities through residential services or daycare centers; and provided 199,482 meals or supplies of easy-to-prepare food items. In addition, Hondao participated in various policy committee meetings or expert consultation meetings concerning elderly care, shared its practical experiences and insights with policymakers, firms, and NPOs to promote effective policymaking.
