This paper examines the determinants of age-friendly environments from the perspectives of caregivers in the absence of long term care insurance and social security net. A survey was conducted among 172 government formal care providers in Malaysia. The structural model revealed that social participation, communication and information as well as community support and health services have positively significant relationships with age-friendly environments. As such, social environment has greater significant role in building an age-friendly environment. The findings provide important information for the authority to meet the challenges of an ageing society, in order to prepare to become an age-prepared society.
