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.

Wished we were allowed to open our senior homes like this in Canada. The hygiene and treatment towards seniors in governments owned senior homes here in Ontario are absolutely horrendous.

They didn't leave you when you are young so don't leave them when they are old …

We are so busy growing up that we forget that they are also growing old …😔

Samurai X says:

These people who spent the best years of their lives fueling China's rapid growth over the last few decades are now abandoned by society. The Chinese state has more money invested in wasteful property bubbles than in healthcare for retirees and elders. Capitalism with Chinese characteristic indeed. A heart-wrenching sight indeed.

T0NI M0NSTER says:

It's crazy how can a mother, raised a child give them everything!.just for those children's ending up putting they parents in elderly places, because they can't take care of them!.but live goes around and their children will do the same to them!

Pub Comrad says:

Nursing home care in China🇨🇳 is almost nonexistent or
– only for top CCP officials.

Last Chang says:

Young Chinese🇨🇳 must take their country back from
– the outdated authoritarian surveillance corrupt regime.
