"I'm 67 years old,  I dream of being on the stage of Taipei Arena at 80! After nearly three months of preparation and planning, a team of the Center for Humanities and Social Sciences at NCKU came to Pingtung's Zhu Tian Le Chi Community  on December 4 to participate in the Lawn Music Festival stall.As one of the six Le Chi Friendly themed stalls on site, the NCKU team worked with three volunteers and collected over 200 colorful senior dreams in less than three hours.
 "At the age of 80, I hope I can grow old happily inZhu Tian Le Chi Community . Tim Lu, an adjunct assistant professor in the Department of Architecture at NCKU, has been involved in local volunteer efforts for many years and has accumulated deep emotions. He said, " The planning of this year's Lawn Music Festival not only brought together volunteers, businesses and community input, but also arranged for local seniors with dementia to participate in helping set up the stalls and even help with the charity cutting, which was a very valuable breakthrough and attempt. This shows that the Pingtung County government is really working in a grounded manner, and through the close relationship between people, it supports the possibility of operating a friendly community."
 On the day of the event, the sound of music brought together all the partners who work together to build the dementia-friendly care service in Xisei, the cross-departmental Pingtung County government team, local businesses, and the NCKU Social Science Center all participated in this event. Seniors from neighboring community care centers, long-term care cases, their family members, friends and relatives came to the playground of Jutian Junior High School to join the lawn concert. The lawn concert, organized by the Social Affairs Department of the Pingtung County Government, kicked off with an enthusiastic dance performance by volunteers from the Zhutian Lechi Friendly Community.There were food and games at the booth, as well as a unique educational experience at Jutian. NCKU's team used "Everyone's 80-year-old Dream Tree" as the main theme, and the interactive teaching materials that relaxed the stereotypes of the elderly were used to teach and entertain people, encouraging them to share and see each other's imagination and expectations for the future, regardless of age, gender, status, or health status, and to build acceptance of themselves and others, so that they can live together freely in the daily life of the community.
 Over the past three years, the Humanities and Social Sciences Center team at NCKU has played an external role in the establishment of the Zutian Le Chi Friendly Community by providing counseling and training to the county government, researching and solving local problems, and bringing in resources. The NCKU team, the Pingtung County Government, local volunteers, and friendly businesses discussed closely and cooperated with each other to create a friendly support environment with both hardware and software, allowing Xisi Village to move towards the vision of a elder-friendly community.
 "We are glad that we have been able to participate in the development of the Zutian Le Chi Friendly Community , and we are honored to have the opportunity to work with the county government, volunteers, and community partners in the future." Associate Professor Ling-Hui Chang of the Department of Occupational Therapy at NCKU led the project's executive assistants, Hsin-Chun Yeh, Shiang-Han Chen, Ping-Jun Lin, and Tzu-Ming Tai, to use their professional backgrounds in medicine and humanities to plan the interactive teaching materials. Ling-Hui Chang said, "The Quick Question and Answer materials were designed to help more people understand the endless possibilities of aging. Afterwards, these materials and models will be given to our volunteer partners, so that they can be used independently in the Le Chi House, which plays the role of a friendly resource station, and in the small action stations that reach out to the alleys of the community."
 Following the tradition and foundation of field practice for many years, the team of NCKU has once again completed the practice of Le Chi Vision Field in front of the Lawn Music Festival Stage.The Center for Humanities and Social Sciences of NCKU will continue to invest in the related fields in Pingtung in the face of the global future of an aging society. We hope that the results of the open experience in caring for the elderly and the demented in rural areas in southern Taiwan will be sustained and expanded to the outside world.



 

 In less than 3 hours, the NCKU  team and the volunteers from the Le Chi Friendly Community set up a stall and collected over 200 colorful dreams from the seniors.

Ms.Chen helped cutting hair at the event.

Everyone's dream on the Dream Tree.

Team of NCKU worked together to develop interactive teaching materials that are fun and educational, in the hope that more people will learn about the infinite possibilities of growing old.

At the end of the event, the volunteers of the community and the team from the Health Bureau of Pingtung County Government took a group photo in front of the stall.
