Eldercare to receive more support

Shandong: A total of 24.6 million yuan ($3.47 million) in subsidies has been allocated to eldercare providers in Shandong province, according to Shandong Bureau of Finance. Subsidies are based on the number of beds used by the elderly. “The subsidies are timely,” said Yang Tonghui, deputy head of a nursing home in Linyi, Shandong.
The facility, which now has 23 staff members who care for 57 elderly people, received 8,000 yuan ($1,125) in subsidies on Friday for epidemic prevention and control.
Hunan province launched five measures last week to support privately run eldercare service organizations.
In addition to paying subsidies to providers that have adopted closed management, Hunan will reduce rent and taxes.
