Centro de Dia “Brilho da Vida” (“Brilho da Vida Elderly Centre”) is an elderly service centre situated in a social housing building for elderly at Fai Chi Kei. The Housing Department of the Government (Instituto de Habitação) entrusts a private management company to manage this building.  All units in the building are rented to eligible elderly who meet the legal requirements.  One family resides in one unit. Similar to other social housings, all tenants in the building can enter and exit the building freely. As this building is designated for the elderly, it is necessary to set up an elderly centre to provide support to them as well as daily caring and emergency services.


The purpose of this service centre is to provide different types of recreational activities to enrich the lives of the elderly, strengthen their social relationships and community networks, bring in social resources so that the elderly can enjoy care and love. Also, we hope that through health promotion plans, we can help the elderly to learn about personal health management, strengthen the elderly’s ability to live independently, slow down and improve the degeneration process. In particular, the centre provides personal care, domestic assistance and 24-hours emergency support to the elderly and fragile. Through these activities, we hope to achieve the objective of encouraging the elderly to stay at home by making them live comfortably and happily in the community during their twilight years.
