Abstract [en]

‘Ageing in place’ is a notion which captures the importance of ageing in familiarsurroundings for older people. Place is often conceptualized as the local environment,e.g. the neighbourhood of living. However, in the modern mobile world,older people are highly mobile, virtually as well as physically. This means thatthe notion of place also has to include mobility and ‘ageing in place’ may have totranscend local boundaries. The aim of this paper is to discuss ‘ageing in place’based on narratives of physical mobility, i.e. everyday mobility/transportation andresidential mobility, among older people living in the same neighbourhood.18 interviewees 65 years and older were asked to retell their lived mobility.All interviewees lived in the same neighbourhood, Ljura in Norrköping, Sweden.In this way all stories converged in time and space, in Ljura, at the time of the interviews.Some interviewees had grown up in Norrköping while others originatedfrom the very north and south of Sweden, as well as from abroad. The experiencesof and ties to Ljura differed clearly based on when the interviewees movedto Ljura as well as previous experiences of mobility in life. While living in Ljura,routinized everyday mobility was connecting the neighbourhood to other importantplaces for the informants, e.g. a nearby forest, the city centre, allotments andplaces from the childhood. Multilocal living was also important where living inthe neighbourhood was, depending on season, shared with living in the summercottage or traveling for longer periods in a camper.The life stories of mobility among older people living in the same neighbourhoodillustrate heterogeneous ways of relating to the neighbourhood as well asthe importance of mobility to link places of significance to each other. The paperdiscusses conceptualisations of ‘ageing-in-place’ in relation to these results
