|以房养老||yǐfángyǎnglǎo||to allow the elderly to mortgage their homes for a pension in old age|

Honey, it says in the newspaper that “using homes to take care of the elderly” will begin trials in the first half of 2014. I don't really understand. What does “using homes to take care of the elderly” mean?

Let me give you a lesson on it. “Using homes to take care of the elderly” is a “housing reverse mortgage loan”. Old people can mortgage their homes. For example, it's mortgaged to a bank or insurance company, and these financial institutions will provide money to support these old people based on the value of their homes. When the old people die, ownership of the property will be given to the institutions.

Oh, that's what it is. Will people accept this? Nowadays housing prices are so high. Average people work hard their whole lives to buy a house. In the end, the person, their money and their house are all gone, coming into this world with nothing and leaving nothing behind.
上海曾经试点过“以房养老”，效果不好。这次国务院又提出来了，也是有理由的。现在大多都是“4 2 1”的家庭模式，独生子女一代的家庭压力是很大的，而且老年人晚年的花费也在不断增大，这种养老模式能改善“有房没钱”的老年人的现状，拓宽养老的渠道。

Shanghai has tried “using homes to take care of the elderly” once before, and the results weren't good. This time the State Council brought it up again for good reason. Now most people are in “4 2 1” types of families. The pressure on those in the only child generation is extremely great, and the costs for the elderly in their final years continues to rise. This scheme for taking care of the elderly can change the situations of old people “with a house, but no money” for the better, and broaden the avenues for taking care of them.
