During the past ten years, the Taiwanese government has invested more than US $9.3 Billion in aged care policies. The Building Communtiy Care Centres Practice Plan was one of these policies which led to the establishment of 1,805 community care centres (CCCs) in 2013. The aims of CCCs are to enhance older people's participation and interaction in their local neighborhood, increase their prospects of receiving welfare services, enhance their opprtunities to live in the local community instead of residential care institutions. Little research has considered the effectiveness of CCCs, and there is no evidence about the impact of CCCs on the wellbeing od older people.
