Because of the low brith rate, Taiwan has became an aging society since 1993. As the birth rate has been dropping every year, the family structures have changed, each family no longer have 2-3 kids as old time. The ratio between labour force and elders is raising every year. From the demographic survery in 2015, the elder (above 65 yrs old) population has been increasing and reached 12.51% of the population. The ageing index has reach 92.18 which is 6.48 higher than 2014.
In order to help the society to take care of the elders, Greenmay Social Welfare wishes to build a geriatrics care program to provide the elders a comfortable, free and convenient community with great medical care.
Greenmay Social Welfare is founded by several retired professionals, their parents has started to have health issues and became regular visitors in the hospitals. Therefore our founders has united and invited many doctors as Greenmay’s consultants to organise seminars to discuss geriatric care issues, and wish to contribute to our elder population. Greenmay Social Welfare wishes to offer elders a comfortable, convenient and free environment with well medical cares.
The vision of Greenmay Social Welfare Geriatric Care Centre:
- Convenience – Located in Taipei city centre or suburbs area, in order to provide quick and easy commute.
- Medication – There must be elder medical department in the care centre, in order to provide immediate support to the elders.
- Comfort – Each suite in the care centre will be at least one bedroom, one common room and one kitchen.
- Active – There will be several activities during the day in communal area for elders to keep having quality social lives and exercises.
