Although the professionals recognized senior housing as a specific type of housing, their views on design and service for the senior housing differed widely. Secondly, enactment of senior congregate housing act should be made in terms of diversifying the types of mainstream housing supply not necessarily in institutionalized facilities. Furthermore, the building standards and management supervision of the senior congregate housing must also be regulated under the related act.
