Government to launch caregiver subsidy pilot scheme next month


The government announced on Thursday that it will launch a one-year pilot scheme next month to pay a monthly subsidy of MOP 2,175 to those who are looked after by a caregiver.


Those with a serious intellectual disability or who are bedridden will be covered by the scheme, officially known as Caregiver Subsidy Pilot Scheme, which will run from next month to November next year.

The pilot scheme aims to enable the government to gain experience in implementing the caregiver subsidy, before the possible launch of a permanent programme.


The Social Welfare Bureau (IAS) hosted a press conference on its premises on Thursday to brief the media about the pilot scheme. IAS President Wilson Hon Wai and Choi Sio Un, who heads the bureau’s Social Solidarity Department, presided over Thursday’s press conference.
