The center has four floors: (1) 4th floor is Community Care Center and Lifelong Learning, (2) Adult Day Care Center, (3) Adult Day Care Center with Overnight Stay Service, and (4) Congregate Meal Site. Two added values were the roof-top garden/communal vegetable plantation as well as an international award-winning Caregiver Café. 

These services were provided mainly by Jian-Shun Foundation and Taiwan Association of Family Caregivers. The Caregiver Café, recently won the Innovative Carer Practices Award honored by the International Alliance of Carer Organization, is a respite and training site for caregiver services under Taiwan’s Ten-Year Long-term Plan 2.0.

The center near both mountains and sea provide a surrounding with beautiful scenery, peace and tranquility. In addition to resident’s room, there are facilities such as church, dining halls, library, classrooms, rehabilitation station. In order to give complete care to elders, we have hired the pastor, administrative personnel, construction workers, cleaning crews, laundry crews, social workers, special arrangement doctors, nursing staff, care workers, occupational therapy personnel, physical therapist, nutritionist…etc. The center provides medical clinic services, varied classes, spiritual counseling. In addition, we also accommodate relatives of the elders for temporary stay with the elders to enjoy kin fellowship and affection. By combining varied functions in our center and cooperating with the industry, government, and academic institution; we’ve strived to integrate academic professional knowledge and experience for creating satisfactory services to elders in meeting their daily living needs.

Taipei City Hospital – Yangming Branch Nursing Home

13:00-15:00

Taipei City Hospital is a full-service, total care medical institution that is prepared to meet the comprehensive healthcare needs of Taipei's 2.6 million residents. The merger of ten municipal hospitals into one unit has made the Taipei City Hospital the largest healthcare organization in Northern Taiwan. Each hospital is referred to as the respective branch of the central organization; for example, Taipei City Hospital – Yangming Branch.

The purpose of this merger was not only to improve hospital and community-based healthcare, but also to rebuild Taipei City’s entire public healthcare system. The theme of this reform was the creation of a “Total Care System”, namely a network that begins caring for an individual from before they are born until they are elderly. To do this, we seek to instill a new sense of healthy living, to facilitate a healthier environment, and to integrate healthcare into the community.
