Gen Z Sanctuary: Inside China’s Unique Nursing Homes for Young Adults

Daniel Kim Views  

A new trend has emerged in China: nursing homes explicitly designed for people in their 20s and 30s. The South China Morning Post (SCMP) reported on the 29th that these unique facilities appear not only in major cities like Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Guangzhou but also in provinces such as Yunnan in the southwest and Shandong in the east.

These nursing homes primarily cater to two groups of young people: the “Tang ping” (those who prefer to lie down and do nothing) and the FIRE, which stands for “Financial Independence, Retire Early.” According to the SCMP, burned-out Gen Z and millennials turn to these nursing homes as temporary sanctuaries.

Consequently, these facilities focus more on mental health than physical health, providing spaces such as bars, cafes, and karaoke rooms where residents can relax and socialize. These young residents use these facilities to empathize with each other’s situations and exchange information. One of the main attractions of these facilities is their affordability. Most charge only 1,500 yuan (about $235) per month. This allows young people to enjoy their Tang ping lifestyle without worrying about their parents’ disapproval.

The SCMP analyzed this phenomenon as a reflection of China’s economic slowdown, which has led to fewer new jobs and an increase in young people reluctant to work.
