  •   Objective  To investigate the association between age-friendliness of communities (AFC)and cognitive function in the elderly and provide scientific basis for the construction of healthy aging.  Methods  A total of 5 940 permanent residents aged 65 and over in urban and suburban/rural areas in Hangzhou, Ningbo and Lishui of Zhejiang Province were studied from April 2022 to July 2022. A cross-sectional survey was used to collect basic personal information of the subjects, and the community age-friendliness and cognitive function of the subjects were assessed using the AFC rating scale and the 8-item dementia ascertainment (AD8) scale respectively. Multivariate logistic regression was used to analyze the risk factors for cognitive dysfunction and the association between AFC and cognitive function in older people.  Results  A total of 6 000 people were screened and a total of 5 940 valid questionnaires were collected. The results of binary logistic regression analysis showed that the scores of residential environment, transport environment, community environment and social inclusion were influencing factors for cognitive dysfunction (P<0.05), OR (95% CI) were 0.924 (0.877-0.973), 0.925 (0.875-0.978), 0.946 (0.895-0.999) and 0.927 (0.876-0.982) respectively.  Conclusion  Poor residential environment, transport, community and social inclusion environments are independent risk factors for cognitive impairment. The measures to improve the degree of age-friendly community are helpful in improving cognitive function.
