Caring for China's ageing population: the residential option-a case study of Shanghai

Ageing & Society

Author: Harper, S.
Year: 1992
Type: Journal Article

Abstract:

Forecasts predict that the proportion of the population age 60+ will double by 2025 in the People's Republic of China. Here, health & welfare policies directed toward elderly people in China are reviewed, &, drawing on documentary & field research, the current development & administration of residential homes in Shanghai are assessed. Case study material is presented to illustrate the current situation of residents in relation to their former life experiences. It appears that in communist China, as in Western democracies, former positions & allegiances in younger life help construct the experience of old age.
