ADB provides support for elderly nursing in Hebei

Asian Development Bank (ADB) recently approved a $100-million loan and a grant valued at $670,000 to support the development of Hebei province’s elderly nursing care services.

North China’s Hebei province has an aging population, and elderly nursing services urgently need partnerships to assist them, according to Wendy Walker, an expert on social development at Asian Development Bank.

The loan will be used to build five nursing homes that will be jointly operated by the private sector and Hebei public service department.

To provide better and professional elderly nursing services, Yanshan University in Hebei will establish an elderly care training center, where courses covering elderly care and nursing, health management, information and communication technology, as well as psychology will be provided.
