“Wan Hon Integrated Home Care Service Team” (WHIHCST) was established in 1997. During the preliminary stage of service provision, while the site in Wan Hon Estate was under construction, a provisional office was set up in Sau Mau Ping Community Centre to provide home care services for the needy. Upon the completion of Wan Hon Estate, “Wan Hon Integrated Home Care Service Team” was moved into the new office premise since then.
