Abstract

With the purpose of studying the impact of intergenerational support on the health of left-behind elderly in rural China, using the method of orderly logistic regression, the three dimensions of intergenerational support (economic support, life care, and emotional support) are used to analyze the effects of self-evaluation of the health of left-behind elderly in rural areas. Studies have found that children’s financial support to their parents is conducive to the health of left-behind elderly in rural areas; child care is not conducive to the health of left-behind elderly in rural areas, and taking care of grandchildren has a positive impact on the health self-evaluation status of rural left-behind elderly; children’s emotional support has a positive impact on the health of rural left-behind elderly. Therefore, the following suggestions are put forward: strengthen children’s awareness of supporting the elderly through publicity, education, and guidance; increase the use of mobile phones and other electronic products by the elderly to keep in touch with their children and enhance mutual emotion; to make the elderly dependable, we must vigorously develop the long-term care insurance system.
