Hong Kong Seniors Flock to the Mainland

For 2 months now, Hong Kong’s streets have been aflood with protests, but there's at least 1 area where Hong Kong and mainland China are becoming more entwined: Senior care.
 
Hong Kongers are drawn to elder facilities on the mainland lured by more affordable care options. Hong Kong offers social security assistance to seniors living in China’s Guangdong and Fujian provinces, and is planning additional living allowances.
 
Elderly Hong Kongers can live in Chinese facilities for about $1,000 a month—compared to $2,000-$5,000 for mid-range facilities in Hong Kong, where seniors can wait years for subsidized spaces.
