Abstract/Summary The home environment is increasingly being recognised as an essential element in successful ageing as the majority of older people choose to remain at home while ageing. The home environment takes on increasing significance as ageing occurs. While the home is recognised as a physical environment, it is also experienced as having personal, social, and temporal dimensions that are often unique to the individual. This article explores the meaning of these dimensions of home for older people.
