Elderly Care in Thailand: Luxury at a...
Phuket
By Biel Calderon
31 May 2014

Elderly care has been one of the sectors affected by the global economic crisis in Europe. Many retired people cannot afford to pay for the services they require. Countries like Thailand have seen this dilemma as an opportunity to offer these services at a lower price. In Phuket, one of the main tourist towns in Thailand, a Swiss woman has opened a caring house, the Baan Tschuai Duu Laa (House of Help and Care), which hosts elderly from Switzerland, Germany and the United States. The residents of the care home now enjoy better care at a much lower price than their home countries.
