Care for the elderly

The subdistrict has prioritized senior care.

It has developed three comprehensive eldercare service centers, four canteens, 21 activity rooms for them at local juweihui (neighborhood committees), and other elderly-friendly venues.

It means daycare, nursing, entertainment and other amenities are just 15 minutes from the local seniors.

One of the subdistrict’s comprehensive eldercare service centers has a 90-square-meter canteen. Three-dish sets cost 12 yuan (US$1.68). Takeout and delivery services are available to disabled elders.

The second service center offers cardiograms, bone mineral density tests, blood pressure checks and traditional Chinese medicine consultations.

They can receive health data on their mobile phones. Big data monitors their health. Their phones will alert them if their health is compromised.

Home care services include a 24-hour hotline for seniors, home renovations and daycare for seniors with cognitive problems.
