Ageing in place with LIVin Concepts

Ageing in place with LIVin Concepts

Ouderen, voornamelijk 65 plussers, trainen in groepsverband bij een sportschool in Wassenaar 10 mei 2017. Steeds meer ouderen vinden hun weg naar een fitnesscentrum. Bewegen voor ouderen in de vorm van krachttraining – waar nodig volgens een individueel aangepast programma en onder begeleiding – kan er voor zorgen dat ouderen geen spieren meer verliezen, maar juist sterker en stabieler worden. Resultaat van goede krachttraining is dat men fit en vitaal blijft en ‘krakkemikkigheid’ en ‘fragiliteit’ buiten de deur houdt.

Ageing in place

The total complex of factors – the shift from inpatient care to outpatient care, the ageing population, the increase of the number of people with dementia and the number of single person and two person households in addition to changing demands and wishes in the area of hybrid residential/care environments – must be brought together and translated in a new concept for homes for life: LIVin.

LIVin fills in the gaps between ‘living’ and ‘care’. Livin Concepts invests sustainably in homes as a carer and in the direct surroundings as a social ecosystem so that the home and the surroundings both contribute to preventing, solving and ameliorating the ailments that come with increasing age.Our choices for modular timber construction, energy-neutral construction with energy generation through solar panels, use of natural building materials, energy-efficient systems, use of domotica, wall finishings and use of colour reflect what we are trying to achieve: Sustainable living in a safe environment at an affordable price.

The feasibility of the proposal is currently being investigated. If the outcome is positive, the proposal may well become a reality.
