The article describes that under the background of aging, countries all over the world have adopted community-based elderly care services as a transitional mode to alleviate the pressure of social aging. This article focuses on analysing the advanced experience of community-based elderly care in typical countries such as Japan, Northern Europe, Australia, Canada, and China. It also provides an in-depth analysis of the general difficulties in the development of community-based elderly care services such as insufficient service supply, shortage of professionals, difficulty in meeting diversified needs, lack of funds, and incomplete community support system. In response to the general difficulties, policy recommendations are given to strengthen the supply of community elderly services through multi-party cooperation, enhance the training of professionals, provide diversified services, integrate multi-party capital to support the development of community elderly services, and establish a comprehensive community elderly service system. It is intended to provide policy references for different countries in the face of the social pressures brought about by the aging of society.
