What will you do if your parents are too old to care for themselves? Will you send them to nursing homes?  Or will you feel competent to care for your parents?

According to a survey conducted by China Business Times, a whopping 99 percent of China's post-1980's generation feels they are incompetent when it comes to taking care of their parents. Among the respondents, 74.1 percent say the strong pressure from life and work is the main reason; 68.4 percent have responsibility for several old relatives; 50.1 percent live in different cities away from their parents.

Confronted with the imminent aging society, is it time for governents to provide the elderly with better nursing homes to relieve the pressure of the youth?

No, my Father is going in an Old Peoples Home when he needs help. It's just a Western thing. I do however respect Asians for how they deal with their aging parents etc
