Children May Be Forced By Law to Care for Chinese Parents (CHINA)


Malaysia Sun

19th February, 2011 

China is said the be thinking of making it compulsory for people to visit elderly family members and not abandon them.

The law would allow parents to sue their adult children if they were not providing for them.

The China National Committee on Ageing has said sons and daughters will need to take responsibility for their parents and help financially. 

Because of China's one-child policy, which has been going for 30 years, the law could mean that a young married couple would need to look after four parents and eight grandparents.

By the year 2040 there will be 400 million Chinese over the age of 60.

Nursing home beds only accommodate a small proportion of the Chinese senior population.
