Abstract—Pension problem and medical issues are important issue which arouse many discussions about Chinese society at this stage. The "integration of medical and nursing" pension model is the complementarity of medical institutions and pension institutions in the function of mutual integration of resources. Solving the traditional “medical and nursing separation” old-age care model has led to the contradiction between the supply and demand of medical care and long-term care for the elderly in the old-age care process, and a series of problems caused thereby, which has become a new type of old-age service model. Based on the background of aging, the demand of social pension is increasing day by day. In the face of the continuous development of aging, the plight of shortage of pension resources. Based on the analysis of pension buildings at home and abroad, this paper puts forward a new mode of “Medical Support Integration” architecture, and summarizes the design points of the pension medical care combined architecture. The purpose of this paper is to provide design basis for the construction of comprehensive and sustainable pension buildings, alleviate the plight of the elderly, and from the perspective of the elderly, fully consider the elderly physical and mental needs, improve the integration of medical and nursing care space, and create a paradise for the elderly.
Index Terms—architecture, space design, medical and nursing integration, elderly
