This paper examines the replicability of the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) in China. PACE is a community-based eldercare program that originated from San Francisco in the early 1970s and has been associated with compatibility to the Chinese value for eldercare in previous literatures. Through a synthesis of intensive literature review, site visits, and interviews with eldercare service providers and Chinese eldercare experts, this paper takes a closer look Beijing’s community-based eldercare service market, and identified the challenges of introducing PACE program into this market.
