Analysis on government role and responsibility of China’s urban and rural old-age service

Meixia Qu, Shihai Chen


With the increasing trend of aging population, the problems of urban and rural elderly care services are becoming more
and more significant. The government plays a vital role in urban and rural elderly care services, and its duties and responsibilities are
of great importance to promote the coordinated development of urban and rural elderly care services. However, the current research on
the specifi c roles and responsibilities of the government in this fi eld is relatively insuffi cient. This paper aims to deeply analyze the role
positioning, responsibilities and responsibilities of the Chinese government in urban and rural elderly care services, explore its importance to
collaborative development, and put forward suggestions for optimizing the way of government participation. Through a more comprehensive
study on the role and responsibility of the government in urban and rural elderly care services, it will help provide more eff ective policies
and practical suggestions for improving urban and rural elderly care services in the future.
