Against the backdrop of the construction of the Hainan Free Trade Port and the increasing social mobility of the elderly, coupled with the continuous improvement of residents' living standards, the "snowbird-style" off-site elderly care model is gradually becoming an accepted form of elderly care. This study, employing methods such as literature review, on-site observation, and in-depth interviews, thoroughly analyzes the needs and motivations of the "snowbird" population, considering the current policy environment for off-site elderly care, the satisfaction of elderly care needs, and the social integration of snowbird elderly individuals. Based on these findings, practical strategies and recommendations are proposed to optimize the off-site elderly care services in Sanya City. The aim is to earnestly address the social and psychological needs of snowbird elderly individuals, fulfill their elderly care service requirements, and facilitate the rapid and healthy development of the "snowbird-style" off-site elderly care service industry. This, in turn, effectively contributes to the construction of the Hainan Free Trade Port.
