Recently the Xinhua News Service declared the government understands China has a great need for elder care. With the one child policy and the migration of the most capable youth to the cities, who will care for the elderly? This crisis of care is real. The government is pleading for help from the NGO and religious communities.
- Wish to train large groups of care-givers?
- Wish to establish a for-profit training center?
- There are hospital and elder care facilities already built who are pleading for trained professionals to come and “run their facility”.
- Elder Care will be one of the most severe social needs in China during the next 20-30 years.
