AbstractHousing is not only a shelter, but also the basic component of elderly’s well-being because it is a place for sustaining family and social connections, and most elderly persons wish to age in their own home as long as possible. The rapid ageing population in Hong Kong has lead to the continuous rise of the old age dependency ratio. Therefore, the Hong Kong government has pick up most of the caregiving responsibility by providing public rental housing, financial assistant, and elderly-care services to the elderly. However, ageing is a complicated process and meeting the needs of the elderly are not a simple task. Thus, the formal and informal social networks will need to work together in order to provide a more comprehensive services to the elderly and enhance the quality of the life of the elderly.
