China has entered a period of accelerated population aging that is accomplished by an increasing prevalence of the number of the disabled elderly. This paper uses the latest data from the CLHLS of 2018 to report that the demographic characteristics and care modes of the disabled elderly in China. We find that the function of family care is declining, community care needs to be improved, and institutional care is becoming increasingly difficult. Furthermore, we put forward some effective suggestions to solve the problems.
