AbstractThis study aimed to examine of the type and intensity of activities of an ageing-in-place (AIP) Scheme that might contribute to the positive outcomes of elders. Method: A cohort of 2,081 elders from 11 AIP housing estates and 1 control estate were randomly selected within each age stratum: 65–74 years, 75–84 years, and 85 years. Elders were interviewed face-to-face at baseline and 1 year and their participation in the AIP Scheme activities was recorded. Results: Structured small group intervention and activities that improved the frailty states, mood, and cognitive function increased the likelihood of elder tenants’ to age in place. Implications: Group activities that promote physical, psychological and cognitive outcome all contribute to the positive change in elders’ preference for aging-in-place. Promotion of positive social interaction is crucial in the development of an AIP program.
