China has undergone dramatic changes in both economic and social situations for the past three decades.
Faced with the challenges of an aging population, internal migration of labor, and rapid urbanization,
China’s current tradition of providing care for the elderly is no longer viable. A preliminary survey was
conducted to collect data from Nanchang City in the Jiangxi Province of China to explore ideas of
current and future generations concerned with Long Term Care facilities. This pilot study analyzes the
preferences and perceptions of the elderly.
