The reduction of residential mobility is one of the major causes of the elderly institutionalization. In this sense, we must rethink home as the place where people want to live, enhancing mobility, autonomy and well-being. The complexity of these challenges calls for an integrated and multidisciplinary approach. Being that, synergies among different areas and sectors of intervention are essential to optimize security and housing mobility: from architecture & residential engineering and design & digital home automation to provision of care, such as nursing, occupational therapy and physiotherapy.)
The 6th session of the Interactions Symposium will focus on revisiting ‘home’ as a center of mobility promotion through the life course, which requires an integrated and multidisciplinary approach.
