With prolonged longevity and present inadequate provisions of community support services, the stress of caregiving is profound. An analytical framework, namely, the “paradox of community care”, is presented and its effects for caregivers and receivers are analysed at both micro and macro levels with support from empirical data among elderly Chinese in Hong Kong. The implications are directed towards shared family care and developments for “Community-Based Geriatric Care Services”.
