We provide outreaching physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and social linkage service to residents of private Residential Homes for the Elderly (RCHEs) located in Kowloon West (Shum Shui Po) District. We also provide speech therapy for residents of contract RCHEs (including the Day Care Units (DCUs) attached to contract RCHEs) as well as self-financing RCHEs and self-financing Nursing Homes (NHs) in the district.
