Under the trend of China's aging population and declining birthrate, it is more necessary to promote the way of institutional care. This research selects Yangtze River Delta with the highest level of economic development in China as the research region, and collects 2463 questionnaires to study the preference and determinants of aged care model among residents of different cities and ages. By logit regression method, this research finds that the willingness of institutional aged care of residents in Shanghai, Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Anhui decreases in turn. Residents who are younger, live in cities, have a higher sense of happiness, have fewer children and have a higher level of education are more likely to receive institutional care, and the elderly who have more daughters and meet their children more frequently prefer home-based aged care.
