Online map shows establishments for seniors

Shanghai's first map of nursing homes, service centers and schools for seniors went online today to mark the Double Ninth Festival, an occasion to honor elderly people.

The map at allows people to easily find some 600 old-age nursing homes as well as day-care centers, eateries, activity centers and schools for senior citizens.

The map also allows people to rate and comment on these facilities about their environment, cost and services.

"Public opinions will be considered when authorities evaluate the performance of each nursing home every year," Wang Tao, information director of the Shanghai Civil Affairs Bureau, said, adding that unqualified ones will be shut down.

Online reservation for a bed in a nursing home will be added in the map soon, Wang said. But applicants have to meet certain criteria.

The map will later contain other information of other civil affairs outlets such as marriage offices, adoption centers, donation spots and funeral parlors, the bureau said.
