Abstract


The objective of this research was developing social service model for elderly according to their needs analysis specifically. The ageing of Indonesia's demographic structure over the past decade had a significant impact on the dependency ratio on the productive age group. This condition also occurs in Yogyakarta Province as the province which has the highest number of elderly and highest life expectancy in Indonesia. The increasing number of elderly people in Yogyakarta Province has not been able to be accompanied by efforts to improve the quality of elderly well-being through inclusive social services due to limited government's capacity in budget support, infrastructure support, skilled human resources support and pro elderly policy support. Moreover, the social services for the elderly have been implemented in top-down policy with the dominant role of government. Therefore, the alternative problem solving is implementing the values of collaborative governance through a participatory social service model by non-governmental actors. The social engagement of communities, elderly's families, social workers, volunteers, social organizations, and government agencies in elderly’s social service inclusively is an important step to improving elderly wellbeing sustainability through a strengthening of social capital. The research approach that used in this research was research and development research for two years (2017-2018).
