Staying with family members or receiving professional care? Seniors in Harbin have a new choice to enrich their life in retirement(退休), as harbin.dbw.cn reported.
The seniors can take a bus to a day-care nursing home every day between 8 am and 5 pm, just like others go to work, and go back home to be with their families in the evening.
In the nursing home, they will receive professional care, have lunch, take part in activities such as calligraphy(書法) and singing, and take university courses designed for them.
According to a research, there were 1.75 million seniors by the end of 2015. Less than 10 percent choose to stay in the nursing home while most live at home. Loneliness and shortage of care are the major problems facing the stay-at-home seniors.
"After my mother passed away, I struggled to take good care of my father," said Zhou, an office worker.
Those who have retired parents agree that their parents spend a boring and lonely day at home, watching TV all day and filling their stomach with food. The situation becomes worse in winter when elders are unable to go out due to the cold.
However, the cost of such nursing homes is different from person to person but stands at around 2,000 yuan ($290). Another problem is the shortage of facilities (設施). Even if two seniors share a room in the nursing home, the city still lacks(缺少) at least 100,000 such rooms.
24. In the day-care nursing home, the seniors can ________.
A. go to work B. stay with their families
C. attend university D. get professional care
25. What is the main problem for seniors staying at home?
A. A lot of seniors choose to live at home.
B. They are lonely and short of care at home.
C. Their children won’t take care of them.
D. They are unable to go out especially in winter.
26. What information can be inferred from the passage?
A. People have no trouble attending their retired parents.
B. The day-care nursing home is getting popular among seniors.
C. The price of staying in the nursing home remains the same.
D. Two seniors must share one room in the day-care nursing home.
It warmed my heart today to walk into the Thirsty Camel downtown in the Thanksgiving Day, for a quick lunch before a haircut and library trip. Ihan, a food shop owner, said that he was refusing to take money today because it was Buy Nothing Day. To increase awareness(意識) of the strange over spending nature of our society, Ilan suggested a trade for food today. He simply asked that you offer something of equal personal value for the meal you received.
At first I was really uncomfortable, wondering if it would be fair to exchange a yet to be determined “I Owe You” (IOU) for food? What could I give him of equal value? After all, his food is the best in the town!
We ended up writing our IOU's with promises of a book, some paintings and the offer of work in a variety of ways if he ne eds it.
I think the idea isn't that the trade is "equal" so much as the importance of the kind of transaction. We put thought into our offer and we had an even greater understanding for the meals we ate.
We don't buy a lot, especially at this upcoming time of year. We don't give gifts at all in fact. The holiday time is spent enjoying each other's company and doing things together with family and friends. This is what seems most sensible.
Ilan is a good person. We are all lucky to have someone like this in our community.

How are things with you lately? I’m glad to tell you the plan for my winter holiday, which is approaching. Above all, I have got to finish all the assigned homework and do some reading as well. The most exciting part is to celebrate the traditional Spring Festival by visiting relatives and close friends and even travelling near or far. Besides, I intend to take part in some meaningful volunteering activities organized by the community. Please send mean e-mail, sharing your plan for the winter vocation. OK?
Looking forward to it!
W: Here I am alone on this Boeing 747. I am going to another country to go to school. I am happy and excited. But I am also lonely. My family and my friends are at home. I am up here in the sky, halfway over an ocean. I am not afraid, but I am worried. What will my new life be like? Where will I live? Will people be friendly? Will someone meet me at the airport? Four hours ago, I was at the airport in my country. My family and friends were with me. Everyone was saying, “Goodbye, Lily. Good Luck!” I looked at my parents’ faces. I saw big smiles. I knew that they were proud of me. But I also saw tears in their eyes. I knew that they were going to miss me. At home it is two o’clock in the afternoon. My family is learning to live without me. And now I must learn to live without them. My parents want me to go to school. I want to go to school, too. So here I’m on this airplane. I must stop thinking about my family and friends. I will be in a new country in three hours. I must be brave because I will have a lot to do.
