  • South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Chinese woman couldn’t find suitable nursing home for elderly parents, so she opened one” – below is their description.

    The world’s most populous nation, China, is also a greying society. It’s estimated that by 2040, 28 per cent of China’s population will be aged 60 or older. But since elderly parents have been traditionally cared for by their children, the country still lacks a comprehensive elderly care system. The challenge of finding proper care for her disabled parents led Cai Dongdong to switch careers and start her own nursing homes. By looking after her parents and other elderly people in the community, her ultimate wish is for every community across China to offer similar services for senior citizens.
