Premier Lin Chuan says that community-centered facilities are an important part of long-
term care for the elderly.
Lin was speaking Saturday at the opening of a neighborhood care station in Hsinchu. He said that community based care is especially important as changes in the structure of society leave many adults with elderly parents become unable to care for them. Lin said that with community-based care, elderly people have the chance to interact with others in their neighborhoods and can receive care where they live.
Lin praised Hsinchu City’s incorporation of technology into the long-term care system, a decision he said can save labor and costs. [SOURCE]
