In order to understand the implementation of Culture & Health Station of the Indigenous Peoples, President Tsai headed for the Culture & Health Station of Meihua village, Jianshi Township, Hsinchu County for supervision. President Tsai received a warm welcome by the elders. Accompanied by Director Icyang‧Parod, Director Yun, Tien-Pao of Hsinchu County as well as Chen, Wen-Pin, Village Head of Meihua Village, President Tsai probed into the status quo of caring service and the construction progress of the forward-looking infrastructures of the Culture & Health Station , in addition to listening to the elders in share their experience in the Culture & Health Station.
Aside from providing professional care for the elderly, Culture & Health station also played the role of “connecting tribal resources” and promoted the common learning of children and elders by combining the xylophone teaching in Meihua Elementary School. President Tsai also experienced xylophone activities and interacted harmoniously with the elders. Culture & Health Station promoted friendly interaction between tribal elders and young people, achieving the brilliant effects of generation integration and activating aging.
Chairman Icyang said that Culture & Health station was a very important point of care in aboriginal areas. In 2019, 314 stations had been set up across the country to train local people as attendants, creating 889 jobs and caring for about 11,715 senior indigenous people in the country, covering one quarter of the senior indigenous people.
This year (2019), the salary of the professional care-givers in the Culture & Health Station of the Council of the Indigenous Peoples would be increased to NT $27,749 per month, an increase of NT $4,749 from the salary in 2018, to provide a service mode that was culturally sensitive to the people and suitable for their local development.
