Care Services

151.     In respect of elderly care services, I propose to increase funding by $60 million a year to provide an additional 160 day care places, 278 more subsidised residential care places and 180 more infirmary places in residential care homes for the elderly. I also propose to provide additional funding of $18 million a year for District Elderly Community Centres to recruit more staff to strengthen their counselling and referral services and their processing of applications for subsidised long-term care services for the elderly.
