Our Services

It is 8 minutes drive from Queen Mary Hospital and allows parents to spend more time with their children while they are in hospital while at the same time reducing stress for the whole family.

Value to Parents

The HOH is not only a comfortable and relaxing hostel, it is also a place for the parents to share and express their feelings. Parents receive support from one other and the professional social worker. This empowers them to manage and overcome the difficult time during the critical moment.
Over the 14 years, nearly 20,000 persons had consumed the service of the HOH. Each family would stay a week at the HOH in average per time.
