Chinese ageing people in dilemma: Exploration of elder people’s feeling about home caring in western area of China
The demand for elderly care will increase significantly with the acceleration of ageing, so the country needs to transform under this demographic structure. The country desire to diversify elder caring, but 90% of the elderly still choose to stay at home. Therefore, it is worth understanding the thoughts of the elderly, including the advantages and disadvantages of home care. This researcher will further promote the prosperity of the elderly care industry and improve the quality of life of the elderly. Welfare pluralism suggests combining multiple resources such as family, community, enterprises, and national governance to tackle challenges brought by the ageing population. This research will specify the actions of those social actors via three key research questions: What reasons make the elderly choose caring services in their home instead of other private caring homes? What do these elder people need and concern about in current practices? How to improve the current practices and provide available alternative solutions for the ageing challenges? This research will use the qualitative method via semi-structured interviews because the qualitative method can collect the results of the subjective feeling of "home care" and observe the multiple reasons. Finally, based on the analysis of results, this research found specific solutions for achieving welfare the pluralism with the cooperation of government, community and individuals.
