Welcome to the SWD Elderly Information Website


Respect, Love and Care for the Elderly


This website provides

  • a one-stop platform for delivering information on:
    • long term care services
    • services provided by residential care homes for the elderly licensed under the Residential Care Homes (Elderly Persons) Ordinance (Cap. 459, Laws of Hong Kong)
    • services provided by recognised service providers under the Pilot Scheme on Community Care Service Voucher and Pilot Scheme on Residential Care Service Voucher.
  • a search function which enables the public to select homes and recognised service providers that suit their needs.

To enhance transparency on the performance of individual homes, this website also contains information about their participation in accreditation schemes and Social Welfare Department ‘Service Quality Group Scheme’ as well as their conviction records under the Residential Care Homes (Elderly Persons) Ordinance (Cap. 459, Laws of Hong Kong).
