Before Admission

You are ready to get care at JCHH, and we want to help make your admission process as smooth as possible. Your case manager (home care nurse) will make your reservation and guide you and your family throughout the entire process. Please do not hesitate to contact your case manager for clarification or supplementary information.

On Admission

When you arrive at JCHH, you may have some questions about what to expect during your stay. On admission, a fees overview will be provided by our Shroff Office to give you an understanding of your estimated hospitalization fees and payment process.

Don’t forget to bring along your valid HK identity card / passport for your admission registration. You may also wish to pack the following items to make for a more comfortable stay at JCHH.

  • Intimates, pyjamas and comfortable sportswear
  • Closed slippers, preferably with a non-slip sole
  • Any necessary equipment or special devices (eyeglasses, hearing aids, wheelchair etc.)
  • Personal care items (toothbrush, comb, lotion etc.)

Each room will have a safe for you to store your valuables. However, we highly recommend for you to leave jewellery, credit cards, large sums of money and other valuables at home. JCHH will not assume responsibility for any theft, loss or damage of your personal property at the hospice. 

Infection Control Measures

To keep you and your loved ones safe during your stay at JCHH, we kindly ask everyone to observe the following infection control practices.

  • Always keep your hands clean with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Wear a surgical mask during your visit if you have any respiratory symptoms or conditions.
  • Avoid visiting the hospice if you have a fever or any type of illness and seek medical attention as soon as possible.
  • Patients suspected of or diagnosed with an infectious disease may be asked to follow specific infection control protocols to reduce the risk of cross-infection in the hospice.

Room Information and Charges

  • Room allocation will be based on clinical needs, room availability and other operational considerations of the in-patient unit. If your preferred room is unavailable, you may be asked to stay in a different room until your selection becomes available again. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
  • Lodger accommodation is available for all room types. We provide complimentary accommodations for one lodger; there will be a separate charge for each additional lodger.
