Taking your memory-filled home with you when moving to sheltered housing?

Press/Media: Press / Media

Description

Our national and municipal policies on the elderly underscore that the best place for an aged person is home. Still, unfortunately many elderly people find themselves in a situation, where the home intended for their final years suddenly turns into a ‘flat’ only, lacking the spirit emanating from the memories and meanings of one's own home.  When designing gerontechnology, the elderly should always be consulted directly. Would it be the time to set up an idea movement for the ageing population?
