Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to contribute to our Special Issue entitled "Aging in Place: Supporting Older People's Well-being and Independence".

Aging in place is an increasingly important aspect of gerontology and public health. As the prevalence of older adults choosing to age in place continues to grow, so does the need for research that addresses the multifaceted aspects of this phenomenon. This Special Issue aims to bring together a diverse range of perspectives and insights into the challenges, opportunities, and strategies associated with supporting older people's well-being and independence in their chosen living spaces.

We welcome submissions of original research articles, reviews, case studies, and perspectives for the following topics:

  • Innovations in home-based healthcare and assistive technologies
  • Community-based programs and initiatives that promote social engagement and inclusion, addressing social isolation and loneliness among older adults
  • Assessing the impact of housing design and modifications on older adults' quality of life and independence
  • Interventions/approaches to promote holistic health among older adults living at home
  • Policy and healthcare system considerations for supporting aging in place

Our goal is to compile a comprehensive collection of articles that will inform researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and stakeholders dedicated to improving the lives of older adults.

Dr. Gordana Dermody
Guest Editor
