The Community Care Service Voucher Scheme (CCSV) for the Elderly

Introduction

The Community Care Service Voucher Scheme (CCSV) for the Elderly (the Scheme) provides community care services (CCS) through adopting "money-following-the-user" and "affordable users pay" subsidy mode.

Features of the Scheme

  • "Money-following-the-user": directly subsidise eligible elderly persons so that they can freely choose and switch Recognised Service Providers (RSPs) under the Scheme, and adjust service items and volumes.
  • "Affordable users pay": the less an elderly person can afford, the more government subsidy he/she receives.
  • Mixed mode services: elderly persons can use both day care and home care services at the same time.

Eligibility

Eligible participants are elderly persons who have been assessed by SWD’s Standardised Care Need Assessment Mechanism for Elderly Services to have impairment at moderate or severe level and are waitlisting for subsidised CCS and/or residential care services (RCS) on the Central Waiting List (CWL) for Subsidised Long Term Care (LTC) Services without any kind of RCS or subsidised CCS being received.

How to Apply

SWD will send invitation letters direct to eligible elderly persons on the CWL to invite them to join the Third Phase of the Pilot Scheme.  While the eligible elderly persons receive the invitation letter, they may make application direct.
