Abstract

The vast majority of study about loneliness among elderly people is conduct in either assisted living community setting or nursing homes, little focused on comparing and contrast between the two setting and improving future caring system among elders. The main research method I am using is qualitative analysis of previous researches, government archives and nursing home webpage. It is found that factors that lead to the development of loneliness in nursing homes and assisted living community are coincident but there are also some predictive factors varying in the two setting. The final product is a creative model of a new-form elder’s care system which could better maintain elderly people’s psychological well-being and inhibit the occurrence of loneliness. This project would contribute to future researches on elderly caring system and also call on researches about solving the financial problem of establishing a more complete caring system among elders.
