Though a majority of older adults want to remain at home, the homes themselves are often unsuitable and inadequate to continue living with safety and independence. While there is a growing awareness that new housing should meet and adapt lifetime home standards, most of the homes that will exist in 2050 have already been built. Therefore, improving and adapting existing homes should heavily be considered to enable ageing in place.

To what extent are the inhabitants included in identifying best practices and challenging planning and design?
