The purpose of this research is to explore the problem of the rapid growth of the aging population in Taiwan. The study cited relevant statistics from the PRIDE, the website of the Department of Household Registration, M.O.I., and the Population Projection Inquiry System of the NDC for analysis and explored the good policies for elderly care in various countries. The research results summarized five main problems, (1) Super-aged society- the elderly population increased, (2) Economic recession- declining birth rate, (3) Shortfall in supply- insufficient long-term care resources, (4) Labor shortage- increased dependency ratio, and (5) Heavier social burden- declining birthrate and aging population. Based on the issues, aging and declining birthrates, raised above, this research proposed the following five main recommendations: (1) Long-term care service planning. (2) Promotion of maternity benefits. For example, apart from providing childbearing subsidies, government should expand its public childcare services. (3) Long-term care industrialization. Long-term care services in Taiwan should be transformed to be industrialized from social welfare institutions. (4) Elderly care for the elderly, and (5) Social welfare policy such as policies on child-rearing subsidies and parental leave protection in the workplace. It is an extremely important to slow down the transition to a super-aged society, remind the government and the public about the impact of population ageing, and provide people in need with more appropriate care.
