There are Infirmary Unit and Disabled Unit in Cheshire Home, Shatin.

Severely disabled persons without self-care ability will be arranged in wards where continuous high quality care will be provided. Disabled Unit also provide respite and halfway house service. Respite service provides temporary short term in-hospital service to disables, as to relieve the stress of families and carers. The purpose of halfway house is to relieve the pressure of hospital bed of the New Territories East Cluster by providing rehabilitation service to patient with temporary discharge difficulties due to home arrangement.
