Support Teams for the Elderly
 
$d Support Teams for the Elderly (STEs), attached to DECCs, provide elders with concern and assistance so that they can live actively in the community under this support network. They also promote senior volunteerism to encourage elders to become volunteers, to be continuously involved in social affairs and to serve other elders in need so as to promote the sense of worthiness.

Additional information of STEs can be downloaded here.
