Government attention needed for better nursing homes for the aged

China Daily | Updated: 2015-07-15 08:00

The news that Qian Liqun, a respected philosopher and educationist at Peking University, and his wife are going to spend their remaining years in a nursing home has sparked heated online discussion about where the retired should spend the rest of their life. Comments:

For many, living in a nursing home after retirement means being "abandoned" by indifferent and unfilial children, and leading a lonely, insecure and dreary life. While emotionally resisting a nursing home, these people seem to neglect the fact that currently the social services for the aged are unable to meet the demand. This issue needs not only the government to come up with a complete set of security measures in terms of social welfare and services, but also individuals to be prepared for their old age.
