Due to the rapid aging of the population in China, the planning and allocation of facilities for the elderly have drawn growing attention. This study seeks to clarify the status of current research on the layout and planning of facilities for the elderly in China, with the goal of promoting further academic research, as well as guiding the sustainable development of facilities for the elderly. Based on the CNKI database platform, the paper provides an overview of relevant literature and research in China over the past 20 years, and highlights the significance of proper planning of facilities for the elderly. Secondly, from four perspectives- that is, the supply and demand contradiction, the facility type, the construction standard and planning layout - the author investigates current research trends on the layout planning of facilities for the elderly in China. Finally, it is proposed that research on the layout planning of facilities for the elderly in China should place more emphasis on the attributes and characteristics of the elderly, further improve the planning evaluation system, pay more attention to the application of new technologies such as big data analysis, and strengthen interdisciplinary in-depth crossintegration research. Finally, the study is conducted with an aim to provide reference for future research and practice on the layout planning of facilities for the elderly.
