Older people’s independent living and mobilities in the context of Ageing in Place- policy

Henna Luoma-Halkola’s doctoral research (in social policy) focuses on independent living and mobilities of older people in the context of Ageing in Place- policy.
The thesis explores how older people organize their daily lives and mobilities when they face mobility restrictions. The research is motivated by a desire to understand how older people’s independent living in their own homes could be better supported in situations when they experience mobility difficulties.
