Shamshuipo Integrated Home Care Service Team


“Shamshuipo Integrated Home Care Service Team” (SSPIHCST) was formerly known as “Pak Tin Home Help Service Centre” and “Shek Kip Mei Home Help Service Centre”. The Pak Tin Centre was established in 1976 and the Shek Kip Mei centre was established in 1986. 

Following the re-engineering of Community Support Services for Elders by Social Welfare Department in 2003, these two centres were combined and renamed as “Shamshuipo Integrated Home Care Service Team” and further strengthened our services for the needy who are living in the community.

Service Target

  • Persons with disabilities or illnesses
  • Individuals and families with social needs 


All age groups are eligible to apply the service. Applicants must be Hong Kong citizens and living in the community. Escort service can be provided for residents of residential units while they are on home leave. (Priority will be given to those low-income individuals or families which are lack of social support)
