Innovative Housing Solutions for Ageing in Place in Maleny

Stable, appropriate and affordable housing provides the basis for healthy people and healthy communities, however, there is a fundamental mismatch between the demand and supply of appropriate housing options for older people to age-in-place. Rural and regional areas face acute issues finding appropriate housing to meet the needs of their older residents. This project focused on a specific community: Maleny, a regional town in SE Queensland, to investigate the wants and needs of older residents regarding ageing-in-place.
