In 1996, the Senior Citizen Home Safety Association (SCHSA) was founded by Ir. Albert J. Cheng (GBS, P. Eng., FHKIE, JP) and Dr. C.K. Law (GBS, JP) and a group of passionate individuals, in response to a prolonged cold spell during which more than one hundred elderly living alone were found dead. The Association is a self-financing social enterprise and charitable organisation in Hong Kong that offers 24-hour personal caring and emergency assistance services to the elderly and others in need through a core service, Personal Emergency Link, with the mission to enhance the living quality of the elderly in the community through the use of technology and people-oriented services.
SCHSA is a believer in technology, leveraging ICT advancements to establish an efficient, cost-effective service platform that provides territory-wide service to their users. In recent years, SCHSA has developed a series of services - including PE Link, the award-winning Mobile Link Service, Safety Phone Service, e-Care Link Service etc - in their continuous efforts to enhance the living quality of the elderly in the community, including extending the specialized SCHSA Call & Care support from indoor to outdoor environments.
