The home-based care service system is one of the main components of the current elderly welfare system and the main development direction of the future senior care model in China. As the service object of the welfare system, the elderly's awareness and attitudes towards welfare rights are related to the effect of the old-age supporting system’s implementation, and also the key factors that restrict the improvement and development of it. The study found that the elderly's attitudes towards basic welfare responsibilities present the traditional view of family responsibility. Welfare rights consciousness shows different degrees of individualism and collectivism tendency. They hold the attitude of giving priority to economic development, believing that the government should bear the most share of welfare funding. At the same time, for the principles of the distribution of welfare rights, the elderly show a bias toward a selective approach to provision.
