Abstract

Along with the aging process, the number of elders with dementia in China is increasing rapidly. However, both the facilities constructed and policies made for them as well as the relevant research and explanation are almost blank so far. Focused on their special physical and psychological status and living demands, this paper proposes corresponding design strategies respectively on environmental atmosphere, care conditions, safety assurance and communication space based on the analysis and summary of relevant cases of residential environment for the aged at home and abroad. Finally a construction model of residential space environment for elders with dementia, which is applicable to the current situation of China, is established and it can be summarized as family-based type(positioning), small group (scale), circle-type road (path), and layered care system (layout).
