government’s “long-term care program 2.0,” which is to be officially launched in 2017, after a trial run that started in November, will make Taiwan a country where seniors can enjoy their later years.

With Taiwan increasingly becoming an aged society, taking care of seniors is one of the government’s most important jobs, Tsai said while attending a plaque unveiling ceremony at a long-term care center in Chiayi County, which has the highest percentage of elderly population in Taiwan.

Starting next year, Taiwan’s long-term care program will be upgraded from “version 1.0” to “version 2.0,” in which the types of services provided will be expanded from eight to 17 and categories of care receivers from four to eight, she said.   [FULL  STORY]
