"Jujiale" Service Center (苏州 居家乐 服务中心)

The Jujiale (meaning "living happily at home" in Chinese) Service Center is a virtual retirement home project launched by the Bureau of Civil Affairs of Suzhou's Canglang district in 2007. The center dispatches housekeeping helpers at their clients' call for services, and also send their staff on special ocsasions (e.g. holidays and birthdays). Initially, the center offered free services for older persons in low-income families, including single elderly households, but it was extended to cover 6,100 pensioners in the district.
