Nursing for the elderly has become an increasingly severe problem for Chinese society. As the earliest city in the nation to comprise an aged society, Shanghai has been exploring proper ways to solve this problem.

Shanghai Yiheyuan Nursing Home, a non-profit nursing institution that cooperates with Danish Deacon Homes, a leading care provider in Denmark, is one of those explorers.

Located in Jinshan district, Yiheyuan Nursing Home, established in 2015, has introduced advanced nursing management concepts from Denmark to meet the needs of the Chinese elderly.

Zhou Baoyun, chairman of the nursing home, introduced that to make the residents feel at home the nursing home learned from Danish practice that people usually bring photos to nursing homes and allowed residents to bring items from their homes. In addition a Danish manager is also on duty to monitor the daily operations.

Over the year, 19 activity groups have been established to enrich the residents’lives and a hospital has also been equipped for them. The nursing home houses over 520 old people who have formed a harmonious relationship with the housing staff. As the second phase of construction is being launched, more elderly people will soon be able to enjoy the quality care there.
