Release date:2022-01-07

    Because of the shortage of nursing home and the shortage of nursing personnel, the welfare policy is not complete, the problem of aging in China is very serious.


    According to the Japanese "Tokyo news" reported in May 11th, in China there is "not rich first old" word, meaning not yet rich has entered the aging. The drawbacks of the population structure caused by the family planning policy also led to China's "little child aging" to further exacerbate. In order to learn from the management experience of the pension industry in Japan, China is making great efforts to introduce Japanese nursing.


    Hundreds of old people gathered in the dining hall, chatted and lunch. This is the case of Harbin, Heilongjiang, China, known as the "Asia's largest" nursing home. Has more than 1000 people, but the person in charge said: "there are more than one thousand people in the queue waiting for."

The UN data show that in 2015 Chinese people over the age of 65 in the total population accounted for 9.5%. Compared with more than 25% of Japan is not high, but it is estimated that in 2040 will reach 22.1%. More than 20 million population of Beijing, Shanghai and the proportion of older people has reached 17.9% and 14.8% by the end of 2013 (data), almost equal to the Japanese.


    Reported that China in the economies of scale has been ranked second in the world, but welfare facilities and social security preparedness has just started. Can stay in nursing homes for the elderly is not much. Urban pension insurance for the elderly is only about 40 million. In the majority of the population of the rural population, more than 80% of the elderly do not have a pension. Only a small number of people can receive a pension, the gap between the rich and the poor is also expanding. The average worker's pension is about 2000 yuan, while the local government retirees reached 6000 yuan, 3 times the former.


    Reported that the concept of children for their parents pension also changed a lot. In the Chinese society with filial piety, with the development of economy, the values of young people are changing. A 77 year old woman said: "a living with their children will increase their burden, I hope to stay in nursing homes." The traditional concept of "child care for parents is a matter of course" gradually becomes weak.

Taking the city as the center, the pension related market is expanding. "Care industry has great opportunities, nursing homes will be built for the wealthy." Women in charge of a nursing home in Harbin (55 years) said.


    Reported that China's local government and care industry for Japanese companies stationed and investment welcomed attitude. A cadre of Harbin municipal government, said: the first to enter the aging society of Japan has a wealth of experience. Very welcome Japanese companies come in." In fact, there are already more than 20 nursing Japanese companies stationed in China's urban areas. Also face some problems. According to statistics from the Ministry of civil affairs of China, at present, the demand of professional nursing personnel is about 10 million people, but only about 30 thousand are eligible. Can only rely on rural migrant workers. Zhu Shunhua researcher at Fudan University in Shanghai, said: "China's universities and even no benefits related to the specialized departments. It takes time to cultivate talents."


    Takahashi Yukinori, President of the Weiss company to carry out nursing services in Dalian, said: China's nursing industry is still in the exploratory stage. Because there is no care insurance system, it is difficult to carry out the middle layer of the service." Points out the risk and difficulty of entering and investing in the Chinese market.
