Standards for Healthy Living / Senior Urbanizations

In fifteen years half of the population of Germany and other countries will be over sixty, which will have a major societal impact on the healthcare burden and productivity. If not for the opportunities offered by Healthy Senior Urbanizations, the associated problems could lead to critical changes in affected regions.

Standards for Healthy Living / Senior Urbanizations

AIRS promotes professionalism and the development of emerging standards in the field of senior healthy-aging villages and urbanizations. This is a rather new concept for the future living conditions of the aged and looks at preventive geriatrics from several perspectives. Gerontology offers many insights that can be applied to real-life situations. The standards regarding how urbanizations for seniors should be

  • designed architecturally
  • urbanized in a sociologically optimized way
  • serviced with medical and rehabilitative offers in a managed way
  • equipped with amenities and services for daily life
  • operated as integrated companies and real-estate compounds represent an innovative and rapidly developing field.

Communities, governments, city planners and telemedical service providers have to be brought together to formulate and optimize meaningful solutions for the future of healthy living, especially for seniors. The Chinese market is developing less quickly than the European one, but it too is hungry for implementation projects.

Applied preventive geriatrics is constantly on the lookout for standards and comprehensive, managed service solutions for people over sixty to keep them active, happy and healthy.

Orenda, a village that offers managed living conditions, is a prominent example, although its population is not typical. Yet the factors and parameters surrounding the inhabitants exemplify key points and suggest a basic template for standards for the building of senior healthy-aging villages and communities.

The AIRS Institute has a prominent, central location within the village at the Museum for Psychosomatic Medicine and is developing these standards further for the purpose of discussion, refinement and approval by international experts.
