History

Tung Wah Group of Hospitals has successfully bid the Enhanced Home and Community Care Services (Yau Tsim Mong / Kowloon City) from Social Welfare Department to operate the service in Yau Tsim Mong and Kowloon City District since March 2015. 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. The Centre, renamed as Enhanced Home and Community Services (Yau Tsim Mong), provides home care services for the elderly living in Yau Tsim Mong District.
