BEIJING — The State Council made a series of arrangements on Aug 21 on expanding elderly care services.

According to a State Council executive meeting chaired by Premier Li Keqiang, demand-oriented development of elderly care services is a key measure to improve the quality of life for the aging population.

Efforts will be made to develop a variety of home-based elderly care services supported by communities, including aids in terms of dining, healthcare, travel and cleaning, the meeting noted.

Nongovernmental institutions will be encouraged to develop tourism, healthcare and other services suitable for the consumption of elderly people.

The country will further support the development of commercial endowment insurance and establish a long-term care system which links insurance, welfare and aid, according to the meeting.

The meeting also decided to step up supervision over the quality of products and services for aged people, and sternly punish those that violate the rights and interests of the senior citizens.
