2016-10-28 Senior Care in China
   2016-10-28 11:51:22    CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Shi Jie



Global Talks:
Today we are talking about:
According to reports, projections estimate China's elderly population will be larger than that of the United States by 2020. This surge in the population of the elderly, a leftover from decades under one-child policy, comes at a time when China is developing at a rapid rate and the pace of urbanization quickens.
This leaves many of the elderly in China behind in rural areas without the traditional family structure around them; a structure that traditionally has taken care of its elderly for generations. It seems that senior care services are going to be very important for China in the future, with an elderly population that is estimated to double to 400 million by 2040.
So how do we make sure that that the elderly are well taken care of? What are some of the challenges unique to taking care of senior citizens? We take a look at these questions and much more on this edition of Today as we'll be discussing the state of elderly care in China.
