Community-embedded elderly care effectively integrates the advantages of institutional, family and community-based elderly care in practice and greatly integrates multiple social resources, which is a trend for the future development of elderly care services in China in the context of an aging population. Cooperative governance provides new analytical ideas for community-embedded elderly care services, and the community-embedded elderly care model in City C has just emerged and is in the exploration stage. Taking SX Health Care Center, currently the first community-embedded elderly care pilot in city C, as an example, this paper finds, after investigation and research, that there are cooperation dilemmas in the practice of social organizations participating in urban community-embedded elderly care services, such as insufficient supervision of government responsibility, competitive market environment, limited development capacity of actors and lack of trust on the demand side. In the future, it is necessary to coordinate and integrate all parties through "leading the cooperation order, optimizing the cooperation relationship, improving the cooperation supervision and enhancing the cooperation capacity", with a view to optimizing the local urban community embedded elderly care model and building a good long-term cooperative elderly care service mechanism.
