It is important to determine the housing needs for the Malaysian senior to offer an appropriate facility, so that senior citizen can live independently in a comfortable and safe environment. An appropriate current housing aspect, housing characteristics and future housing needs are needed to fulfil all the different backgrounds of senior population. This study aims to identify the housing needs for all the Malaysian seniors. The objectives of this study are to identify the satisfaction of Malaysian seniors on their current housing aspects, to investigate the preference of housing characteristics among Malaysian seniors and to determine the future housing needs for senior living in Malaysia. In order to achieve the objectives, literature review is conducted. Quantitative method was applied in the primary data collection which involves questionnaire survey through online delivery. Henceforth, 74 responses had been obtained through online questionnaire survey.
