AbstractThis study of community-based social services for the frail elderly in China shows that as China turns into an ageing society and the capacity of the family support for the frail elderly is rapidly declining, there is an urgent need to develop formal social services to support elderly persons continuing to live in their community. This article provides a general background on the structure of the emergent community services. Using the example of a city in China, the operation of the community services for the elderly is illustrated The strengths and limitations of community services are discussed.
