This report explains the growing need for a continuum of care for the elderly in their home. Community based homecare is presented as an option that enables older people who have lost the ability to fully care for themselves to continue living as long as possible in their own home and community, independently or with their families. The benefits of community based homecare are described and lessons learned from HelpAge’s ROK-ASEAN programme are highlighted. This resource is useful for people interested in community based homecare for the elderly
