Ageing in the right place: What works across People, Place and Time?

This presentation looks at the concept and the reality of 'ageing in place' in Australia and Canada. Ageing in place has become a focal concept by policy makers and researchers to create communities that facilitate the preference by older adults to remain in their homes and communities as long as possible. However, the reality of ageing in place is complicated by increasing numbers of older adults needing help and limited capacity of existing programs and services.
