Service station for seniors opens in ITL Park
A service station for the elderly of Xihang Huayuan community in Xi'an International Trade and Logistics (ITL) Park was unveiled and started operating on Dec 30.
The new facility will provide day care services for the elderly in the community -- as a miniature nursing home -- in response to the current uneven performance of services provided in older communities and the large number of elderly people in the area.
