Taiwan has been an aging society since 1993 and the issues of economic security and social care for older people have been widely discussed in recent decades. ‘Aging in Place’ is the key policy for developing long-term care services in Taiwan and article 24 of ‘The Indigenous Peoples Basic Law’ places emphasis on the establishment of comprehensive and long-term health care for indigenous people to promote and protect indigenous living quality in terms of health and social care. Therefore, this study aims to explore the needs assessment and operation service strategies of aging in place in remote indigenous area - Makotaay tribe. The study will adopt community-based participatory action research. It will organise a action research team and investigate the experience of other countries and relevant policies in terms of aging in place for indigenous peoples, and discover the distribution of aging in place resources in indigenous areas in Makotaay tribe in the first year; in the second year, the study will employ documentary analysis, in-depth interview and participant observation to analyse the care needs and cultural care of the tribal people, and explore the contemporary mainstream long-term services and its problems; in addition, the study will also combine the results of the first years to plan the strategies of locally long-term care services, which will be participated in and managed by local tribal people.
