The government needs to improve its system for elderly care, including the investments on
new hardware and human resources management, Democratic Progressive Party vice presidential candidate Chen Chien-jen pointed out Monday.
Chen made the remarks while on a visit to the Zhi-Shan Senior Home in Taipei, where he was accompanied by DPP Legislator Pasuya Yao, legislator-at-large candidates Wang Jung-chang and Wu Yu-chin, and Taipei City Councilor Rosalia Wang.
“The question is not about the nation’s ageing population, but whether the government has enough resources to look after them,” Chen said, citing that the DPP has already carved up a 10-year plan dubbed the “long-term care services program 2.0.” [FULL STORY]
