The majority of older adults want to stay in their home in the community for as long as possible. Aging in place is a complex multidimensional phenomena that has an impact on housing, the community and social policies. This webinar will present the results of different studies from the last few years on the topic of aging in place for French and English speaking older adults, with emphasis on the challenges and the facilitators of aging in place.
