With the end of World War II, relatively stable international standards have emerged, the world economy and industry have prospered, medical standards have continued to rise and improve, and social aging has become a global growth trend.

How to deal with the severe situation of an aging society and how to create an indoor and living environment suitable for the elderly are problems that need to be solved urgently. This paper conducts research on the design of green smart homes for the elderly, understands the relevant theories of green smart homes on the basis of literature, and then optimizes the design of the elderly homes, evaluates the design plan, and draws from the evaluation results, the overall design evaluation of this article is relatively good. More than 50% of the people who scored a score of 3 or more for the prospective design, and 60% or more scored for the barrier-free design.
