Build an Age-friendly
“Build an Age-friendly Environment” section covers resources of three domains of an age-friendly city, including “Outdoor spaces and building”, “Transportation” and “Housing”. A safe, accessible and well-designed physical environment supports elderly people and other community members to age in place, remain engaged with their community and gain access to services and activities.
Age-friendly design not only builds a safe and accessible living environment, but also builds a happy atmosphere for the elderly people.
Elderly-friendly Design Guidelines
The Guidelines aim to raise awareness among designers and project proponents on how design decisions can contribute to the building of an elderly-friendly environment that supports active ageing. The design recommendations in the Guidelines serve as reference for the industry to help enhance the quality of life of the elderly in the communities.
