Deqing Bu, Wei Wang


With the increasing trend of population aging, elderly care institutions have become important places for the daily lives of older adults. However, there are still many issues in the current design of living spaces in institutional elderly care models, such as unreasonable spatial layout, inadequate functionality, and inconvenient facilities. To address these issues, this paper conducts a comprehensive analysis through literature review and field research, integrating the physiological and psychological characteristics of older adults and the advantages and disadvantages of living spaces in actual elderly care institutions. Based on spatial design principles and technical approaches, this paper summarizes the key points and strategies for designing age-friendly living environments for older adults in institutional elderly care models. This provides a reference basis for the design of living spaces for older adults in elderly care institutions in China, promoting the improvement of quality of life for older adults and the development of healthy aging care.
