Description: 

The Home Care Service is for people with an elderly parent at home or persons with disabilities. A professional team will provide nursing care, rehabilitation care, social work and counselling services, and training for carers in their own home. It aims to reduce the pressure of hospitalization/nursing home admission. As an NGO, Caritas strives to maintain its service at an affordable price for the elderly through receiving government subsidies and public donations.
