These past yeas the number of senior that reached their retirement age have increased and some of these elderly returned to Shenzhen to be with their children who have settled down in the city in turn placed pressure on nursing homes.

By the end of 2012 around 165,000 residents that holds Shenzhen hukou that are older than 60 but the number of beds at nursing homes were lower that average. And by 2020 the number of residents is expected to reach 760,000 which will make the demand for more beds at nursing homes much greater.
