After confirmation of service, our nurse will conduct a free assessment for the eldelry and set up a "Individualised Care Plan". Our nursing staff will provide related care or rehabilitation exercises according to the "Individualised Care Plan".

After confirmation by both parties, nursing staff can be arranged to provide services on the days required by the eldlery. We will also provide follow-up services, you can feedback on the work performance of the nursing staff to us.

    Yes, Active Global is a Recognised Service Provider by the SWD. Please refer to SWD’s list of service unit. Please visit: List of Recognised Service Providers (RSPs) of the Second Phase of the Pilot Scheme
  • Can the nursing staff take care of other family members and/or help with household chores?

What our users say

Live-In Caregiver Client Mr. Tse (Tuen Mun)

““After my father's accident, he now requires advanced care like tube feeding, airway suctioning and wound dressing. We visited a few nursing homes near Tuen Mun, but they all cost almost more than HK$15,000 a month. Private nurses are even more expensive. I was about to quit my job to care for him full-time. Luckily, we ended up hiring an ex-ICU nurse, Anne, through Active Global. Now that we have Anne to care for my father, I don't need to quit my job.””

Live-In Caregiver Client Ms. To (Chai Wan)

““My father with dementia was sent to the hospital after falling in the bath room in the middle of the night. We've tried sending him to nursing home and hiring more domestic helpers, but it's just difficult to get professional one-on-one care that is affordable for ordinary families like us. For the last two years, Anitha has been tending to my dad's caring need at home. I am glad you found Anitha for us.””

Respite Nurse Client Jenny (Tai Po)

““My mother needed to come home from the hospital urgently. But my brother and I both couldn't take leave from our work to care for my mother. We needed someone we can trust to care for my mother in the first few weeks after leaving the hospital. Your staff really listened and understood our needs. That respite nurse was very helpful to us in those critical few weeks. Thank you.””
