Xingfu ("happy" in English) Nursing Home in Zhidoi County, Yushu Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture is one of the high-altitude nursing homes in Qinghai Province.

In the reconstruction of earthquake-ravaged Yushu, China built four nursing homes and one comprehensive social welfare home, with a total of 530 beds.

The local government has increased their fiscal input in developing elderly care services in recent years, aiming to innovate models for taking care of the elderly.

As of March 15, 2021, Zhidoi County has fully covered concentrated care services catering to elderly people in extreme poverty.
