Healthy ageing interventions often arise from individualised assessments of physical and cognitive function. While these are important, social and environmental factors exert a significant influence on individual and communal wellbeing and can be overlooked in expert assessments. Social and environmental contexts are also central to agefriendly community design. This research examines the factors important to individuals in fostering healthy ageing within an age-friendly community.
