All questions relate to the following Case Study.
A new type of home-based elder care model, called Virtual Elder Care Home or Elder Care Home without Walls, has gained popularity in China. It features home care agencies providing a wide range of personal care and homemaker services in elders’ homes. Services are initiated by phone calls to a local government–sponsored information and service center, which then directs a qualified service provider (a staff member) to the elder’s home.
Participating providers (Virtual Elder Care Home or Elder Care Home without Walls organisations) contract with the local government and are reimbursed for services purchased by the government on behalf of eligible care recipients, the majority of whom are vulnerable. Since its inception in 2007 in the city of Suzhou, in eastern China’s Jiangsu Province, the Virtual Elder Care Home model has spread to many parts of the country, including Gansu Province in northwest China.
