If you would like to apply for a government subvented residential home for an elderly, you may contact District Elderly Community Centres (DECC); Neighborhood Elderly Centres (NEC); medical social worker (MSW) in hospital or Integrated Family Service Centres (IFSC) for assessments. The elderly would be referred to have a Standardized Care Need Assessment and only the elders that are assessed having long term care needs would be put under the Central Waiting List. Normally, the waiting time is about a few years. You may refer to Social Welfare Department (SWD) website for information.
If you would like to apply for a non-government subvented residential home, you may directly contact any non-government subvented residential homes to apply. For details, please refer to SWD Website for information.
