Services Introduction

Setting the Cornerstone of Hong Kong Rehabilitation Services
Since the founding of HKSR in 1959, we have been a pioneer in the field of rehabilitation. Our early development in the Margaret Trench Medical Rehabilitation Centre (1960s) and the Maclehose Medical Rehabilitation Centre (1980s) has served as a milestone development for medical rehabilitation services in Hong Kong.

Being First in Offering Barrier-Free Transportation Services
Our endeavour in accessible transportation through setting up the Rehabus Services in 1978 has been an important step in helping people with disabilities integrate into the community and for them to enjoy the many facets of community life.

Supporting the Development of Rehabilitation Services in Mainland China
HKSR was commissioned as a World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Rehabilitation (WHOCC) in 1986 to provide training and consultancy services in rehabilitation for Mainland China and the Western Pacific Area. Over the years, we have trained a vast number of rehabilitation personnel and have created a solid foundation in the rehabilitation development in Mainland.

Piloting the Community-based Rehabilitation Network
In the early 1990s, HKSR started to advocate for a community-based rehabilitation network (CRNs) for persons with chronic illnesses. With regular subsequent subvention by the Social Welfare Department for territory-wide services in Hong Kong, the programme has become an integral part of our community-based services to promote empowerment and self-help amongst our service users.

Developing Local and Cross-Border Elderly Services
HKSR is forward-looking in the development of local and cross-border elderly services. The Yee Hong Height in Shenzhen is the pioneer for the cross-border elderly services. Our Mainland home for the elderly, which was initially funded by Hong Kong Jockey Club for its construction and operation, was subvented by the Hong Kong Government to provide subsidy and support for eligible Hong Kong elderly to receive cross-border residential care service.

Promoting Chronic Disease Self-Management
The Chronic Disease Self-Management Programme (CDSMP) originated from Stanford University was adopted by HKSR and has been developed and modified for over a decade to become one of our most important service strategies. It was also applied to our Patient Empowerment Programme (PEP) commissioned by the Hospital Authority to offer effective empowerment services to persons with Diabetes Mellitus, Hypertension and other chronic diseases in the primary care settings.

Fostering Evidence-based Work through Research and Advocacy
Internally, HKSR established Centre on Research and Advocacy in 2012 to bolster our evidence-based work. With awareness to issues and policies related to our service users, we respond promptly to social needs. Through unrelenting exploration, we strive to bring new knowledge such as the application of new concepts in rehabilitation service from around the globe to the industry and ourselves.

Utilising Information Technology to Renovate Rehabilitation Education
Sponsored by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charity Trust, “e2Care” Project is a internet patient education platform which has brought new elements of information technology to persons with disabilities as well as community services

Building Together an Inclusive Society through Quality Services
Inheriting the invaluable foundation and experience of our pioneers, HKSR will shoulder the responsibility by tackling the challenges of population shift; and through innovation, we strive to become the role model in rehabilitation service both locally and globally. HKSR is committed in providing quality services to the community, and together we can build an inclusive society.
