Oma esittely

I am a doctoral researcher in social policy. I study how older people organize their independent living and out-of-home mobility in interdependence with their social networks, services (especially dial-a-ride bus) and living environments when they face mobility restrictions in their daily lives. I explore these questions in the context of global Ageing in Place- policy goal, which promotes older people to age in their own homes for as long as possible while reducing the share of institutional elderly care. I am interested in how to better support good and meaningful daily life of older persons who face mobility restrictions when they 'age in place'.
