Shanxi to reward community home-based senior care services


North China's Shanxi province will provide incentives and subsidies to the "1251" project of community home-based senior care services.

The "1251" project will cultivate 10 large-scale, chained and standardized community senior care service brands, build 200 market-oriented, professional and standard community senior care demonstration institutions, create 50 demonstrative senior care service communities, and develop 100 community senior care service organizations. 

Shanxi provincial finance authorities have set up special funds for community senior care service projects and will offer one-time rewards to those who meet the standards of the "1251" project. 

For instance, every demonstrative community senior care service brand and every demonstrative senior care service community will be rewarded 2 million yuan ($313,223.98) and 500,000 yuan respectively.
