Healthcare in housing
Paper i proceeding, 2009
In many European countries, elderly persons will stay in their own homes as long as possible. This fact puts ordinary housing-areas under special constrains. The challenge of a rapidly increasing aging population calls for collaboration and new ways to organize and use built space. The aim of this project is to find, design and discuss solutions within built areas of housing, when homes also are workplaces. This project is in an early phase why main results not yet exist. Method in this qualitative research is use of multiple tactics: Interviews, Questionnaire survey, Observations and evaluations of authentic processes of changes as well as of Design-projects made by master-students.
