lifestyle is changing in China, also for old people.  They don't have life long neighbours as close as family members any more.  They don't have children living with them anymore.  They are probably well physically well, but they are lonely.

How are you willing to help them?  Please, any advice and ideas are welcome!

well, if money is not a problem, still, living with adult children is a problem, especially with in-laws, right?

hi!  yeah, how are you?

that's a good idea.  there are pension houses, mostly are designed to take care of old people "abandoned" by their children.  Most of them have limited economic resources, paying little rentals to these pension houses.  Such pension houses are like hospitals.  Usually 2-3 people share 1 room, each is assigned to a small cupboard.  Not good for "well being",
