Helping Hand is a charity dedicated to serving the needy elderly people in Hong Kong.
Established in 1978 to rehouse the elderly living in squalid caged bed spaces, we currently run six elderly homes plus the only holiday centre for the elderly in Hong Kong. Apart from the quality residential, caring, rehabilitation and dementia care services for our residents, we provide community support services and programmes for other local seniors and their carers.
To provide an affordable and immediate alternative of retirement for the elderly including those desperately waiting for a subsidized care bed and dementia sufferers, we are running an integrated home in Zhaoqing, Guangdong Province as the first elderly home ever run in China by a Hong Kong charity.
