This study explored the relationship between four types of autonomy (health autonomy, informational autonomy, living autonomy, and financial autonomy) and the acceptance of five types of long-term care (adult day care, respite care, assisted living, unit care, and group home) for the elderly in Taiwan. Data were collected from 167 middle-aged and older people. The acceptance of five types of long-term care ranged from 75.9-84.9%. Financial autonomy and information autonomy were significantly related to acceptance of all five types of long-term care. Living autonomy is related to assisted living and group homes. Policy implications are discussed. (Contains 4 tables.)
