#CHINA-SHANGHAI-AGED PEOPLE-NURSING (CN)

(120411) -- SHANGHAI, April 11, 2012 (Xinhua) -- An elder receives massage at a day-care center in Pudong District of Shanghai, east China, April 10, 2012. Parents of the first generation born under the one child policy start to enter their old age. Young people will be under great pressure of support and care of their parents when they get married. That is, one couple may have the responsibility to nurse 4 elderly ones. According to the forecast of Shanghai Research Center on Aging, one-child parents will account for more than 80 percent of the increase in elders in Shanghai from 2013. To release the pressure of aging, local government adds its nursing service investments. So far, there are 631 nursing institutions in Shanghai. In 2012, the city plans to increase 5,000 beds for elderly support, to provide community care for 270,000 elders and to build new day-care centers and institutions. (Xinhua/Niu Yixin)(mcg)
