Longzhen Senior Care, operator of a community-based eldercare center, realized that many of the area’s oldest old were aging at home and were cut off from various services available in the community. In response, they developed a free one-stop community elderly service program. They assess each person’s needs and provide liaisons (combining social workers and volunteers) to arrange for everything from adult daycare and home medical services to handymen, emergency alert response, home-delivered meals, legal assistance, shopping assistance, and other services.
