Details :

To tackle the aging issues, over 700 care and attention (C&A) homes provide accommodation for the elderly.  However, most of C&A homes are non-purposely built with substandard service quality, which is unable to meet specific elderly needs.  To enhance the quality of life for the elderly, an appropriate living environment plays an essential role for our elderly.  Based on a series of research studies, critical design requirements for elderly living in the C&A homes will be presented.
