History

Tung Wah Group of Hospitals had successfully bid EHCCS (KC) from Social Welfare Department to operate the service in Kowloon City District since October 2005. It provides alternatives apart from placement at residential homes for frail elders to continue living in the community with comfort and dignity while receiving a wide range of home care services.

The Social Welfare Department has regularised the Enhanced Home and Community Services from September 2020.

Objective

Enhanced Home and Community Care Services adopts an integrated mode of services to meet the nursing and personal care needs of frail elders with the aims of enabling them to age at home, maintaining their maximum level of functioning and providing support to carers in order to strengthen family cohesion.
