Elderly Care Centers

Since 2010, Amity set up Service Centers for Senior Citizens. We foster a kind of system to integrate institutional service with community based home care. Amity’s social service work is rooted in the communities to meet the needs of elderly people and their communities. The senior care centers provide long-term, short-term and day care for the elderly who are living in the communities. Amity also encourages volunteers to visit the elderly who live by themselves to provide spiritual comfort.

Amity is running different types of elderly care centers who can be mainly summarized within the Amity International Philanthropy Valley.

In 2012, the Amity Foundation signed a management agreement with Qixia District Civil Affairs Bureau of Nanjing and became responsible for an elderly home in the Nanjing's Qixia District. The Qixia district lies in the rural-urban fridge and is subject to fast urbanization and urban development. This was the beginning of the Amity International Philanthropy Valley. The Valley covers 26 acres, with more than 10,000 square meter buildings and 160 beds at the present. Next to the village is also a church. Since 2012 Amity's work has expanded and different new and innovative projects have been carried out.

Amity's nursing homes are tailoring the provision of services to the residents' need. Daily care is integrated with volunteers' service and social work. Amity stages various trainings, events and conferences every year. We are further searching for international exchange and cooperation to foster and develop Amity's engagement to enhance our elderly services and serve the society. Our approach is to function as a role model for the provision of services for the elderly in China, in terms of ethics, profession and expertise.
