Macau is a blend of Chinese and Western cities. Local elders proportion reached 7.7% in 1981, entering the aging society. Facing the increase of elderly population, the Macao government put forward the initial development policy of "family care and home care". The idea of active aging has not yet been popularized. In order to respond to the challenges and opportunities of an aging society. Macao elderly service organizations would need to learn more lessons from other countries. The researcher conducted a series of site visit of the prestigious elderly service organizations in Taiwan and Finland. It is expected that more innovative elderly services could be synthesized through the case study of 5 organizations across Finland, Taiwan and Macau. While the Finnish government promoted the elderly services ‘top down’, the Taiwan nongovernmental sector launched the elderly services ‘bottom up’, both of which are equally important to the developments of Macau. Because during the Portuguese government period, Macau's elderly services were launch by the nongovernmental sector. However, since her return to China, the elderly services have been promoted by The Government of the Macau Special Administrative Region. This study also took into account the many features of Macau society while selecting the cases for study. This study highlight the revelation of the four cases in Finland and Taiwan for Caritas Macau: To establish more interaction between different generations; to provide physical and mental care; the use early preventive care; and to provide caregivers with complete career planning. In terms of service innovation, the critical factors include eight dimensions: actively participate in international exchanges, grasping the changes in social trends, adequate services to be provided by the government, knowing the needs of the service object, linking the social resources in different sector, support from the administrators, innovative thinking of the leaders, influence of the organizational atmosphere.
