We worked on both English to Traditional Chinese and English to Simplified Chinese brochure translations for a care home investment based in U.K. in 2017. Ran by an impressive operations team “recognized and approved by commissioners, inspectorates, the National Health Service (NHS), and social services”, the team has been commissioned to manage projects and provide care homes for hedge funds, worldwide investment groups, overseas hospitals, and governments.”

團隊屢獲對沖基金、全球投資集團、海外醫院及政府等委託,提供護理之家及項目管理。

The brochure provided detailed information on market analysis, how to invest, investment benefits, opportunities, exit strategies, complete with FAQ.

Why invest in UK care homes?

為什麼投資英國護理院舍?

Britain’s population is ageing. In 2012 the number of people aged 65 and older surpassed 10m for the first time; they now outnumber those aged 16 and under.

英國人口正在老化。 2012年,65歲及以上的人數首次超過1000萬; 他們的人數現超過16歲及以下的人。

The over 85 age group is now the fastest growing demographic in the UK, as we all live longer through improvements in health, diet and preventative care. Over the next 20 years the age group is set to grow by 106%, to over 2.6m people.

85歲以上年齡組別,現在是英國增長最快的人群,我們因健康、飲食、預防性護理改善,而活更長時間。在未來20年,這年齡組別將增長106%,達260多萬人。

This trend will be accelerated over the coming decades by the inevitable retirement of the so-called ‘baby boomer’ generation (born when Britain experienced a markedly higher birth rate between 1946 and 1964). Those born at this time are now beginning to reach retirement age and are set to have a dramatic effect on the people, society, and the economy of the UK.

這個趨勢在未來幾十年,將由所謂的“嬰兒潮”一代,無可避免退休而加速(英國在1946年至1964年間,有顯著高出生率)。那時出生的人士,現多介乎退休年齡,對英國的人民、社會、經濟有著戲劇性的影響。

With this dramatic population change comes an increasing demand for specialist dementia and nursing care. There are currently over 800,000 people living with dementia -a figure that will rise to 1m by 2021, and more than double by 2050.

隨著這人口急劇增長,專營老人癡呆症和護理的需求日益增加。目前有80多萬人患有老人癡呆症 – 這個數字到2021年將會上升到100萬,到2050年將增加一倍以上。

Significantly, the number of people of working age supporting our ageing population – known as the ‘dependency ratio’ – is moving in the opposite direction; declining from 4 people per retiree at present to 2.5 by 2035 and 2 by 2050.

值得注意的是,正撫養老年人口的就業人數(稱為“撫養比”)正朝相反方向發展。到目前為止,每名退休人士的比率,從現時的由4人撫養,到2035年,將會下降到的2.5人,到2050年則會下降到2人。

It is clear, therefore, that the care home market has a significant and central role to play in our future society, with increasing demand for high quality accommodation, care, and funding.

顯而易見,護理院舍市場在我們未來社會,發揮重要及中心作用,對高質量住宿、護理、資金的需求將不斷增加。

“The combined market value for care for older people in the UK is currently estimated to be worth £22.2bn, of which £13.4bn is attributable to residential care and £8.8bn to nonresidential care.”

“英國老年護理的市場合計價值,目前估計為222億歐元,其中134億歐元歸於院舍護理,88億英鎊歸於非院舍護理。”

“As the number of elderly people with high care needs in the UK is expected to increase significantly over the next 20 years, there will be a growing need for modern, fit-for-purpose care homes.”

“由於未來20年在英國,有高護理需求的老年人數有望大幅增加,他們對現代化,專為此而設的護理院舍需求將日益增加。”

“There are over 400,000 people living in care homes in the UK, and around 80,000 units in existing care home stock are reaching obsolescence.”

“英國現有四十萬人住在護理院舍,可是現時護理院舍中約八萬個單位已陳舊。”

Through working on this project, we have learned tons of information on home care for the elderly, the health and daily challenges an elderly person may face, the aging population that is growing rapidly all over the world, the investment opportunities inherent with the “silver hair” population, and the buying power of the “grey pound”.

We had done due diligence researching on the professional qualifications of the health team personnel, and on dementia and palliative care. Our client was happy with our efforts.
