Abstract The study aims at proposing the basic concept and direction of Korean-version of the Continuing Care Retirement Community (K-CCRC), recently announced by the government (Presidential Committee on Ageing Society and Population Policy). As for the research method, a logical development methodology is used to conclude by theoretically examining the age-integrated system, location characteristics, and conditions, spatial composition, and planning characteristics, which are the demands of the times that K-CCRC must contain. The results are as follows; first, it is inevitable to promote policies that seek to transition from an age-segmented society to an age-integrated society based on the previous studies on housing and society related to demographic change; next, based on the review of previous studies on CCRC's, the K-CCRC found that the location conditions of rural areas linked to the local community and the spatial conditions of the low-rise distributed arrangement in a horizontal relationship; finally, K-CCRC should consist of up to six spatial functions: independent living, nursing home, nursing hospital, adult day care center, assisted living facility, community care. In conclusion, the basic concept and direction of the K-CCRC should be set based on the spirit of age integration, planned in a regionally distributed manner, and satisfied with the six spatial functions.
