AbstractBased on the findings of research studies on the practice of filial piety in East and South-east Asian societies, this paper maps out a new basis for the formulation of aged care policies. Evidence shows that filial piety, while diminishing in influence, remains to be the most important value in regulating the behavior of children towards their elderly parents and relatives. Hence, neither a complete rejection nor a total acceptance of the value is appropriate. It is argued that a policy on care, especially long-term care, for elderly people in East and South-east East Asian societies must recognize the changes that have taken place in the practice of filial piety. The adoption of a community care approach that combines formal and informal support is suggested to be the most effective strategy in enhancing the welfare of the elderly.
