On March 1, 2020, we officially became one of the Recognised Service Provider of the "Community Care Service Voucher for the Elderly". Voucher holders can now use a wide varieties of home care services provided by Active Global including: medical escorts, personal care workers, health workers, registered nurses, enrolled nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, physiotherapy assistants, occupational therapy assistants as well as providing on-site nursing training services.
In September 2013, the Social Welfare Department launched the "Pilot Scheme on Community Care Service Voucher for the Elderly (Pilot Scheme)", which uses a "money-following-the-user" approach to allow eligible elders to use the community care service voucher to choose appropriate community care service according to their personal needs. We are an Recognised Service Provider (RSP) approved service unit recognized by the Social Welfare Department.
All our Nursing Care Staff have clinical experience (in hospitals, nursing homes, clinics and one-to-one nursing care, etc.) and licenses issued by relevant institutions, such as:
Applicants or their family are required to bring the "Elderly Community Care Service Voucher Certificate" to Active Global in order to understand and confirm the detailed service arrangements (such as service date, time, location and health conditions of the elderly, etc.) and sign relevant documents.
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.
““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.””
““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.””
““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.””
