This event has successfully concluded on 29 April 2022. We thank all our partners, speakers and attendees for their strong support.
Life Space is a key measure of community mobility and a contributor to population health. It encompasses people’s activity and travel patterns in order to achieve self-care, employment, and other social and recreational needs.
Studying the life spaces of older adults by exploring how, where and why they travel will help inform interventions in the health, social, and environment domains. Early interventions to improve life space may serve to help seniors maintain health, build relationships, provide them with greater autonomy to meet their basic needs, and maximise their potential as contributors to society.
