A Role Engagement Model of Elder Care

Xia Chuanling  
Based on the literature review of the elder care in China, a role engagement model of elder care is specified in this paper. This model is composed of three core propositions: (1) the cost proposition- the higher the costs, the lower the probability for a person to involve in elder care; (2) the proximity proposition-the shorter the distance (geographical or social) between the caregiver and the care-receiver, the higher the probability for a person to take the caregiver role; (3) the obligation proposition-the stronger the obligation felt toward the care-receiver, the higher the probability for the caregiver to engage in elder care. Most of the six hypotheses derived from these three propositions are supported by the results from a multivariate normal probability analysis of the raw data of the 2000 China’s Urban and Rural Old Population Sampling Survey. The findings from this study have provided a new angle and a theoretical basis to understand the relationship between state care and family care for the elderly, and to select public policies rationally.
