The Social Welfare Department is inviting eligible seniors to apply for an additional 2,000 vouchers under phase two of the Pilot Scheme on Community Care Service Voucher for the Elderly.
In view of the positive response since the second phase launched in October, the Government, with further funding from the Lotteries Fund, will issue the additional vouchers from next month, making a total maximum of 5,000 vouchers.
The scheme has been extended to cover all 18 districts across Hong Kong with the voucher value expanded to five different voucher values ranging from $3,700 to $8,830.
People who have been determined by the department to be moderately or severely impaired and are on the Central Waiting List for Subsidised Long Term Care Services, are eligible.
