The Tung Wah Group of Hospitals is to provide almost 1,000 extra beds within the next two years for elderly people who need supervised care. But announcing the move, the chairman of the charity group, Frederick Lui Lai-cheung, admitted the problem was far from solved. There are currently 15,056 elderly people on the Social Welfare Department's waiting list for care and attention homes. The department has just over 10,000 places. The Tung Wah group's new care and attention homes, providing a total of 650 places, will be in Sheung Wan, Shau Kei Wan and Ho Man Tin. A further 300 places will be created in Aberdeen at the Jockey Club Rehabilitation Complex for the elderly disabled.
