Communities Around the World: What Makes Them Liveable for Older Adults?

The AAG ACT Division invites you to our forum 'Communities Around the World: What Makes Them Liveable for Older Adults?' presented by Professor Norah Keating from Canada. In this presentation, Professor Keating talks about the features of communities that make them livable for older people and the vast differences among them. Professor Keating draws on research from developed countries; contrasting this research with the poor and deteriorating living conditions of some urban dwellers in developing countries.

Key learning outcomes include:

  • Increase knowledge of community liveability from the perspective of older people who live there
  • A more critical view of the relative importance of features of home and neighbourhood environment to older persons in diverse circumstances
  • Potential to consider policy and practice across the set of features more important to quality of life of older persons
