The aging process in China has accelerated in recent years, with a large number of people entering the aging process. The "migratory bird" elderly are a unique group of people who choose to live in different places in different seasons to enjoy the better infrastructure, cheap prices and comfortable environment. The increasing number of migratory elderly in recent years has placed higher demands on the infrastructure. Home community care is currently the most dominant form of senior care in China. It is up to the community to take care of the living of these migratory elderly. The seasonal change of where migratory elderly live makes community-based senior care more and more difficult. It is an important task for communities to cope with the pressure that migratory elderly bring to community aging. The Greater Bay Area, which has attracted the most mobile population in China in recent years, has the largest migrant population, mostly young, but also many elderly. How well the community serves the migrant elderly becomes very important. This study analyzes and compiles external public data, and interviews a community in Shenzhen and a community in Zhuhai to make a basic study of the elderly foreigners in the community.
