  1. Pet Care

Pets are an indispensable companion for more and more elderly people. On Oct 8, JD Health and JD Pet jointly launched JD Pet Hospital, an internet-based platform to help users access vets and healthcare supports with 24/7 response online and easy connections to offline services. The service aims to bring more convenient, reliable and affordable pet care support for pet owners, relieving elderly people's burden to take care of their pets.

This May, JD.com introduced an App version tailored to elderly users' needs, featuring a simpler interface, larger font size and easier ordering process.

  1. Smart Applications to Support Community Work

JD Technology is working with the local government in Tianjin to build digital systems including a database to better manage elderly residents' information, a website to publicize relevant service information and a smart platform that can make phone calls to hundreds of elderly people daily so as to regularly check their status, send important reminder messages, detect risks and quickly respond to emergency alerts from elderly people's homes.

According to the latest census in 2020, China has 264 million people aged above 60, accounting for 18.7% of the overall population. Among them, nearly 191 million are above 65, which makes 13.5%. In face of this fast-growing population, the consumption goods department of the Ministry of Industry of Information Technologies (MIIT) has been promoting the establishment of an industry system to produce more products that can satisfy the needs of elderly people in China. The shopping festival is the second annual edition JD has held under the guidance of the MIIT.
