Abstract

This article discusses the current status of social work management for the elderly from the situation of Thai Nguyen. The survey results show that in addition to the general policies of the state, Thai Nguyen province has issued many policies to support the organization and support of the elderly, such as purchasing their health insurance card, supporting for the elderly work officials. However, implementing policies and policies for elderly people in Thai Nguyen still have some shortcomings, which should be resolved in the coming time, for example: elderly people cannot buy cheap tickets when participating in traffic; a few elderly people have to wait so long for their social assistance and their longevity celebrations, which often come late; some elderly and poor people who are in difficult circumstances are sometimes forgotten to give social assistance. There are a number of factors that affect the management of social work for the elderly, such as policy and ability of managers, awareness of the authority, community and family, facility and budget for elderly work.
