More than 90 elderly Tibetans who lack proper homecare have adopted a nursing home in Tibet's Nakartse county as their home because of the center's attentive care and range of services.

Losang Chodron, the head of the center, said the elderly people receive housing, food, hygiene, medical care and suitable sports activities and amusements.

At the center, residents needn't worry about the cost of getting sick, as all their medical expenses are covered by insurance and government subsidies, she said.

Apart from a living allowance, elders get a monthly subsidy of 300 yuan ($50). Perhaps even more important, they can participate in many activities in daily life — playing cards, dancing, singing, billiards, drinking tea or using the fitness equipment.
