Description This research was mainly based on the literature review and interview to depict the older adult’s self-contribution is built-up by social participation, giving meanings to contribution services throughout the process, and to establish the localized generativity model. Generativity is defined as an inner desire of an individual to lend a hand or make contribution to the society. Older adults wished to keep nurturing, guiding and mentoring their offspring even in passing down their experiences and knowledges to the next generation during the progress of ageing. Thus, generativity is the key concept to a successful ageing and old ages. In a nutshell, generativity is an implicit ability, which is possessed by all, to help one’s descendants and others, and create one’s fulfilling life. The findings of this research found that the development process of older adults generativity model in Taiwan includes 8 features: motivation source, concern, belief, commitment, preparation, action, narration, and future. This result echoed to generativity model proposed by McAdams and de St. Aubin (1992).
