To Age at Choice among Housing Options
When people grow old, most of them would like to live at a familiar environment they prefer. Aging in place (AIP) is not only a guiding policy of the Hong Kong Government, but also a common aspiration of older people. As the only housing provider of elderly housing in Hong Kong, Hong Kong Housing Society has provided various kind of housing options for older people to help them age in place. Public education to raise the awareness of AIP is also provided by its Elderly Resources Centre. Mr Cheung will elaborate on the current choices of elderly housing for AIP and share his view on the outlook in the medium term.

Inter-generational Co-residence Aspiration and Reality in Compact Hong Kong:
What are the constraints?
It is generally known that inter-generational co-residence is affected by cultural, demographic, social and economic factors. Less explored are the factors of housing and living conditions. Even less known are how the socio-economic and built environment factors interact to influence the aspiration and the reality of inter-generational co-residence of the elderly people and their adult children. Based on a questionnaire survey of 5000 samples sourced from all districts in Hong Kong, focus group discussions, site visits to housing estates, and statistical analyses, this presentation explores the determinants of co-residence in Hong Kong, a city characterized by high-density, high-rise, high- housing price but low-housing- space standards. It will particularly examine how housing circumstances and subsidized housing policy influence and restrain the co-residence aspiration and decision of the elderly and their children of different socio-economic and demographic features. In interpreting the statistical analysis results, trends of housing culture, impact of housing policy, and neighbourhood conditions will be considered to provide a fuller understanding of the constraints of co-residence in compact Hong Kong.
