1. Who are the eligible applicants for CCF’s Half-way Homes service?
All those child cancer patients who are under or have completed treatment and whose living environment is not conducive to convalescing, or who live in areas too remote for recuperation.
2. How do I apply for the Half-way Homes service?
You can approach our Family Counsellors or Hospital Play Specialists directly or ask healthcare personnel or medical social workers in the hospital ward for referral. You can also call CCF staff at +852 2328 8323.
3. Other than child cancer patients, who can stay at the half-way home?
In principle, we can only allow one adult legal guardian to stay with the child at the half-way home. But the Foundation can exercise its discretion and process applications on a case-by-case basis.
4. Is there a fee for the Half-way Homes service?
CCF provides all services for free. Service users do not have to pay any fees during their stay. CCF will pay the water, electricity, gas bills and rent.
