|At a time when the elderly population has recently accelerated, welfare housing for the elderly is a customized house for the elderly that provides customized services to the elderly living alone by building a combination of welfare and residential facilities in one permanent rental building in 2015. The purpose of this study is to diagnose problems with the current status and use of welfare facilities for the elderly and to use them as basic data for future spatial planning improvement plans. The research method was to visit eight survey subjects and conduct observation surveys, actual surveys, and operator interviews. Spatial composition, area composition status, service content, and actual use status by case were investigated, and conclusions on improvement measures were presented by comprehensive analysis. The results of this study are as follows. First, as changes and neglect occur in the use of space, it is necessary to survey the needs of the elderly during initial planning so that spaces with high demand can be planned first. Second, it is recommended to use the space for regularly used convenience facilities, and sufficient consideration must be given to the planned area to ensure that the program room is not altered. Third, there are differences in service content for each facility, and therefore, a more effective and efficient operating system guide as a local facility must be established through specific operating guidelines for integrated community care. Fourth, there is a lack of barrier-free design, so design guidelines that can be used safely and more conveniently are needed.
