Aging in Place: Challenges and Prospects
with Jessica Robbins, Annette Leibing, Aaron Seaman, and Agnes Vallejos
Support provided by the Ethel-Jane Westfeldt Bunting Foundation
From home modifications to remote care-giving technologies, what is the future of aging in place? Defined by a desire to live independently in a home or community, aging in place has historic roots across cultures, but changing practices and varying economic circumstances, both in the US and abroad, have given rise to a new world of aging in the 21st century. In this extended summer salon, four experts share insights and provide tangible examples of aging in place and ask what anthropology can teach us about the influence of social differences—race, ethnicity, class, and gender—on aging populations and the communities that support them.
Jessica Robbins is Assistant Professor, Anthropology, Wayne State University;
Annette Leibing is Professor, Medical Anthropology, Université de Montréal;
Aaron Seaman is Associate of Internal Medicine and General Internal Medicine, Carver College of Medicine, University of Iowa;
