Aging in a place: Perspectives on the meanings of "home" and "community" from age-focused researchers and practitioners
Everyone ages in some "place," or a series of places. This webinar will explore the concept of place from the perspectives of housing research, affordable housing development and modification, and dementia-friendly community planning. Our aim is to connect humanistic concepts with socially engaged research and practice on planning and housing for aging societies, to support critical thinking about the concept of aging in place and its relationship to social justice.
