Abstract: Household environment adaptability reflects the quality of an elderly family's living conditions. The basic influencing factors of adaptive design include:social relationships, family relationships, living conditions, economic income, physical conditions, etc. Using questionnaires and subsequent data analysis, we summarize the quantitative or qualitative relationships between these respective factors. We also construct an influencing factor system that can be used as a reference for adaptive design of household environments for the elderly.

Key words: elderly, home environment, adaptive design
