The Korean society is recently becoming the aging society at an unprecedentedly rapid speed. Following the increase of the older population, it is the tendency that the elderly population’s need for special care is also rocketing. However, due to the increase of working women, nuclear-families, and old persons living alone, new facilities for the elderly are urgently needed. Recently, many nursing homes for long-term care services or dementia patients have been provided. It is needed to examine if such nursing homes are properly designed for the dependent elderly to live, especially to access. This study was carried out using by field survey including observing and measuring. The subjects were 13 nursing homes which gave positive responses for walking through their facilities. The items for observing and measuring were made based on the law for improving the facilities for the disabled, the elderly, and the pregnant. Whether each item fits the law or not was examined. The nursing homes were categorized into 10 areas: driveway, entrance, hallway and corridor, stair, elevator, ramp, rest room, bathroom, shower and locker room, and bed room. Two researchers per one facility carried out field survey. It was founded that while the degree of fit was more than 90% in driveway, elevator, and stair, less than 50% in rest room and bathroom. In case of ramp, there were many cases which did not install the ramp for wheelchair users in interior space except for building entrance. Also, only 30% of bathrooms were installed handrails around bathtub. Among the items which showed more than 50% of unfitness, installation of braille sign for indicating on use, floor information, and room information in entrance, stair, and rest room was included. Also, the emergency bell for the hearing impairment was also unfitted in bathroom, bedroom, and entrance. The arrangement of each room and the width of space including door width were relatively well designed. However, the lack of ramp, emergency bell, and braille sign suggests that more consideration for the characteristics of the elderly was needed.
