Press Corner (Special)

10th Anniversary of HKSAR - Charity Concert for the Elderly
(19 July 2007)

在今日下午本會舉行的記者招待會中,潘Y華女士分享照顧年長母親的個人經歷。她表示母親患有痴呆症,幸運的是潘姐姐自己能騰出時間照顧她。這幾年來,潘姐姐並沒有覺得辛苦,反而享受當中的樂趣。雖然母親有時會不清楚或忘記所發生的事情,但她相信母親有清醒的時候,會感受到身邊人的愛心和關懷。潘姐姐寄語年青人要孝順長者,亦要大力捐款支持香港老年痴呆症協會的服務,因為今日年青力壯的,他日總有需要別人照顧的時候。未雨綢繆,得益的是自己。

另外一位家庭照顧者黃先生憶述,其太太兩三年前開始記憶力衰退,並失去耐性,黃先生初時未明原因,誤以為夫婦感情變質,不但沒有體諒,更會對太太發悔氣。後來參與拍攝有關老年痴呆症短片,對其病徵增加認識,了解到患者需要額外的關注。現在黃先生會耐心照顧太太,以答謝她過往幾十年來對家庭的付出。

他們的女兒黃小姐表示,母親患病初期同時出現抑鬱症徵狀,卻救助無門,感到不知所措。二零零五年開始認識香港老年痴呆症協會,母親獲安排該會服務後,一家人得到更多相關資訊,學習到照顧痴呆症患者的技巧和得到很多專業意見。她希望社會各界能踴躍捐助支持有關機構設立新中心,縮短輪候服務時間,給患者及其家人多個支援的渠道。

慈善音樂會將於七月廿九日(星期日)晚上八時,假香港大會堂音樂廳舉行。捐款詳細和表格,可參慈善基金網頁http://www.hkmacf.org/english/infodetail/20070729.htm, 或致電2527 8285 查詢。為表示對長者的敬意,大會將預留一百張音樂會門票免費派發給六十五歲或以上的長者。有興趣人士可於七月廿三日起到香港醫學會秘書處索取。
