Haishu starts "smart elderly care"

Without going out of the house, the elderly in need can receive such services as housekeeping and nursing with just a call or the online message. The portable smart elderly care products may keep record of the health conditions of the elderly and give out an alarm when there is anything wrong. These are just some examples of the smart elderly care scheme of Haishu District. On the afternoon of October 10, a smart elderly care promotion activity was held at the Guang'an Smart Elderly Care Service Center located on the "Public Welfare Street" of Haishu District.

There are now about 73,000 senior citizens above 60 years old in Haishu District, and with the aging rate of 24.7%, the district has a great demand for elderly care. The Guang'an Smart Elderly Care Service Center was established in July 2016 to address the demand. By taking advantage of the internet technology, the center has set up an elderly care information platform, and conducts online-offline interaction for demand docking with the support of some public welfare organizations concerned.
