||Elderly Services - Integrated Home Care Services Centre
In April 2003, the 3 service teams in Shaukeiwan district were re-engineered into the existing Integrated Home Care Service Team and the centre was renamed "Fong Shu Chuen Integrated Home Care Services Centre". The service aims at providing care to frail elderly, disabled persons, individuals and families with social needs in the district, so as to sustain their living in the community. Integrated Home Care Service Team provides comprehensive care according to individual needs of different service users, so as to achieve the mission of "ageing in the community" and "continuum of care".
The Integrated Home Care Service (IHCS) provides home care services, nursing and rehabilitation services to assist the needy elders, disabled persons and families in need in their daily living. Another objective is to actualize the concepts of "ageing in place" and "continuum of care" in the community through the provision of a comprehensive range of home care and support service.
To meet the varied needs of service users, Integrated Home Care Services provide services to the following two categories of cases:
Frail elders: Elders assessed to be suffering from moderate or severe level of impairment by the Standardised Care Need Assessment Mechanism for Elderly Services, and in need of a comprehensive package of services.
