Summary

The concept of ‘Healthy Aging’ has emerged as more and more seniors around the world want to continue to live in their own homes. The World Health Organization (WHO) emphasize the importance of providing elderly-friendly environments and services to realize healthy aging and are urging the preparation of them on the community level.

In response to such changes in the elderly population and society, elderly care systems are gradually transitioning from 'facility-based care' to 'community care' centered on local communities, and various policies for community care are being implemented at home and abroad. The Korean government has announced the Community Care Master Plan (2018) and has been implementing the Community Integrated Care Leading Project (2018-2022) including the Care Assurance Housing. The Care Assurance Housing is a type of housing in which it provides various care services to tenants, and the government mainly supplies them as public rental housing. Recently, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, a consensus has formed that elderly people have to be able to receive care services at their home. Furthermore, there is a growing sentiment that elderly people with physical or cognitive ailments need customized community care housing.
