Bank insurer, social service offer free dementia risk screeningBusiness | 20 Jun 2019 3:04 pm
HSBC Life has launched the “HSBC Life Eldercare Programme” together with the Hong Kong Lutheran Social Service to provide cognitive health check services for dementia, powered by the “automatic retinal image analysis,'' a dementia risk screening system.
HSBC Life HK Chief Executive, Edward Moncreiffe, said screening will help mitigate the impact of dementia on patients and their caregivers.
HSBC Life will sponsor an analysis machine to HKLSS, where it expects 2,500 to 3,000 people will benefit each year.
Moreover, existing customers aged 60 years or above who have purchased the life protection plan will receive a fee cognitive health screening test, which is transferable to their family members or friends.
Those diagnosed as having high cognitive health risk can receive a further free clinical assessment for dementia carried out by neurologists.
Meanwhile, HSBC Life said it will launch products related to dementia soon.
