A CPPCC member suggested further tapping the religious resources of temples and monasteries to help cope with the mushrooming number of senior citizens.

Some regions should consider setting up nursing homes at temples to better take advantage of religious resources while providing a peaceful and quiet place for the aged to live, said Chen Congcong, who also is a member of the China Overseas Exchange Association.

Given that the demand for senior citizen care in nursing homes far exceeds supply in many cities and regions, the nursing homes at the temples and monasteries should play a key role in serving seniors in the future, she said.
