The results are shown in Table 2 (a is convenient, b is less convenient, c is inconvenient).

4. Discussion

4.1. Analysis of the Adaptation of Pension Mode with the Current Community

According to the results, the author believes that the "Five conceptions and Six features" has a universal adaptability to the community. From the objective reality of the community, we can see that it is densely populated with large areas of public activities and places of entertainment, familiar cultural environment

(family, neighborhood, friends), can better alleviate the social pressure of the elderly and make the elderly feel safe .It provides an ideal environment for their aged care. Wang Xinghang and others have studied this point [5]; the adaptability of this model is also manifested in the family members’ emotional interdependence, the community’s existing resources are fully utilized, and the reduction of serious aging brings Professional pension institutions and the pressure of poor economic individuals.

4.2. Attitudes of Respondents to the Conditions of Community Care

According to the analysis of the survey results, community managers and some residents are basically in recognition of pension model among community courtyard. There are no significant differences in terms of education level and occupation. The main reasons are as follows: First, these research sites all have a good economic and social basis, especially Xiao jin tai has advantages, such as

convenient shopping, ideal medical and health care conditions, and popularization of electronic communications. Second, the investigated community has actively cooperated with the survey and information collection on the health problems of the elderly and related work over the years and has received more knowledge including pension. Thirdly, the Bao jia xiang community in particular embodies a good neighborhood relationship, which is undoubtedly of positive significance for the development of institutional pensions. Fourth, with the development of social economy and the implementation of people's livelihood projects, hardware facilities including pensions are increasingly convenient [6] [7], such as sound community entertainment and sports venues, medical aid conditions, and more convenient transportation. According to Jiang Xiaopu, elderly people are physically and mentally healthy through participation in fitness and various recreational activities [8].

4.3. The Analysis of the Applicability of Resident Representative's Own Condition to the Pension Model among Community Courtyard

The author's survey of 200 community resident representatives showed that the pension intentions reflected by the author are basically consistent with those of the above communities, indicating that the venues and objects of “building/institutional” pension selection have certain objectivity and pertinence. The practical application of the model provides a certain degree of protection. The main basis for this is that up to 77% of the residents’ representatives live with their “historic partner” and “living alone”. The majority of elderly people have 1-2 children, suggesting that these conditions are suitable for the model of the old-age pension. This is inconsistent with the survey results of You Xueqin and others. He believes that the elderly in the apartment are happier, but the reasons he explained are considered to be closely related to child support, positive self-evaluation, and good attitude [9]. The author believes that these factors can implement the spatial transfer, that is, from the apartment to the community, the essence of which lies in the cultural factors such as the concept of pension and the value orientation. With regard to personal monthly income and pension expenses, 66% of residents spend less than 500 yuan on pensions. Consumption like this is difficult to adapt to pensions in apartments and professional institutions [10], while community-based pensions are relatively cost-effective Lower, applicable to such a consumer and income group; it is particularly worthwhile to mention that all the investigated objects have modern communication tools specially adapted to the conditions required by the model, which is consistent with the survey of Yu Duchen et al. [11].
