Xicheng District has established a home- and community-based, and senior care institution-supported senior care service system, providing the elderly with precise services and meeting the diversified and personalized needs of the seniors.
There are 49 community senior care service stations and 27 sub-district level senior care centers in Xicheng District now. The sub-district level senior care centers, community senior care service stations, as well as senior care institutions can provide long-term care, short-term care, day care, home-based care, as well as in-home meal service, cleaning service, bathing service, medical care, spiritual care, education and training services, voluntary services, information management service, health guidance service, culture and entertainment services, medicine delivery service, and online medical diagnosis service. Elderly people can choose to go to the senior care service station to receive professional services, or make an appointment at the station and enjoy services at home.
Xicheng District has created a “home-based senior care bed” service model. The home-based senior care bed provides 24-hour health management and remote monitoring services, which can monitor real-time health condition of the senior care recipient, and provide services based on the health assessment report such as life care, safety assistance service, medical care, psychological counseling service, and temporary care. In Xicheng District, 1979 seniors are enjoying the “home-based senior care bed” service now, which provides strong support for both the elderly people and their families.
Now, 1489 elderly people living alone in Xicheng District are enjoying visit service. Staff members of community senior care service stations or professional senior care teams regularly pay visits to the seniors or call them to solve their difficulties in life. In addition, the staff members record and evaluate the elderly people’s condition in physical health, mental health, personal hygiene, environmental sanitation, and safety of daily life.
Moreover, Xicheng District pioneers a professional senior care service personnel team called “senior care consultants”, including more than 600 social workers, staff members of grassroots senior affair organizations, and heads of senior care institutions. The consultants also provide senior care counselling service, senior care planning service, senior care resource introduction service, senior care policy interpretation service, and rehabilitation aids guidance service online.
