This project is funded by the Community Investment and Inclusion Fund (CIIF) to provide support for the carers of persons with chronic illnesses who resided in the Hong Kong Eastern District. The Project consolidates the effort from the medical, social welfare, community, commercial sector and schools to provide support for the carers.
The main focus of the project is to promote the concept of “caregiving starts from taking care of yourself”. The services are delivered through carers mutual support groups, volunteer phone calls and home visits, and recreational and cultural activities. The carers can gain the support to relieve their stress and build a mutual support network.
