Adopting a new funding mode, namely the “money-following-the-user” approach, eligible elderly persons may choose community care services (CCS) that suit their individual needs with the use of service vouchers.  

Eligible participants are elderly persons who have been assessed by SWD’s Standardised Care Need Assessment Mechanism for Elderly Services to have impairment at moderate level and are waitlisting for subsidised CCS and/or residential care services (RCS) on the Central Waiting List (CWL) for Subsidised Long Term Care (LTC) Services.  They must be living in the selected districts, Sha Tin and Tai Po, without any kind of RCS or subsidised CCS being received.
