Abstract

Background/Objectives: Home-based care for the elderly is still a valued and accepted method for the elderly in China because of the ancient concept of loyalty and filial piety culture. The design of residential structures in current metropolitan communities, however, falls well short of addressing the behavioural and psychological requirements of the aged. In order to accommodate the growth of an elderly society, it has become crucial to construct barrier-free amenities in metropolitan neighbourhoods. Methods/Statistical analysis: The idea of barrier-free design suitable for older people is utilised to research outdoor barrier-free facilities in metropolitan areas. Findings: Examine and comprehend the requirements of the aged for an age-appropriate design through the initial investigation. Read and briefly describe the pertinent reports on the elderly and barrier-free research. Second, a field investigation and data collection were done on the outdoor barrier-free facilities in the following Kunming neighbourhoods: A Kangyuan Apartment, B Wancaicheng Apartment Phase 1, C Binjiang Junyuan Apartment, D Jinshouyuan Apartment, E golden times Apartment, F Jinyue Four Seasons Apartment, and G Jiangdong Fashion Home Apartment. Improvements/Applications: In order to address the issue of standard construction of outdoor barrier-free facilities in residential areas, the analysis and reconstruction suggestions for outdoor facilities in residential areas are presented.
