About this Unit
This unit addresses a multi-faceted perspectives of healthy and successful ageing. A major focus is to raise awareness about creating an age-friendly community which facilitates older age groups, including those from culturally diverse backgrounds, and Aboriginal and Torres Straits Islander peoples, to be actively involved in all community activities to stay connected to people and place that are important to them. The multiple perspectives of ageing in place integrates biomedical, physical environment/design, legal, ethical, policy, service provision and social contexts of ageing. Knowledge and skills acquired in this unit are useful for planners, managers and health care providers for those working with aged communities. The unit covers evidence-based approaches affecting physical environment, personal characteristics and psychosocial mechanisms that facilitate older people to age successfully.
