Objective: To establish the perception of the older person as care recipients through the Cordial Older Family Nursing Model. Method: This study used a qualitative phenomenological approach and in-depth interviews. A total of 18 participants between 65 and 85 years old from the work area of the Community Health Center in Harjamukti, Depok. Results: The finding of this study highlighted five focal themes: (1) the various types of complaints made by the older person, (2) their ability to conduct daily activities, (3) the family support provided to them, (4) the grandchildren and in-laws who are being treated like the older person's own children, and (5) the expectations of old age among the older person. Conclusions: Family support for the older person is proven to be a dominant theme among the participants. The evidence indicates older people acknowledge the positive impacts of the Cordial Older Family Nursing Model.
