As an NGO, Caritas strives to maintain its service at an affordable price for the elderly through receiving government subsidies and public donations.
Easy Home is a social enterprise which aims to provide high quality home care and nursing service to elderly since 2009.

Elderly could use these services with a moderate fee, and the revenue will go to its parent organization, Senior Citizen Home Safety Association, to support other social services
To address the need for nursing care, the nursing robot was developed to assist the daily life of the older persons, so that the elderly can continue to live in their own homes. The "Twendy-one" robot can use a finger that has a joint function and a spring in arms that are fit to touch objects of a complex shape. It can clean floors, carry patients around, and make breakfast in bed.
