In the context of home, the role of older adults are of special interest for two reasons: First, as people age, the immediate environment becomes more important, both in terms of time spend at home, and in terms of place of daily activities. Data from Germany reveals that about 93% of older adults, 65 years and older live in their apartments and not in institutions. According to time-budget data, older adults stay at home for about 80% of the day. Yesterday interviews revealed that about 81% of elder's daily activities take place at home (Baltes et al., 1999). Second, a good person-environment fit (e.g., Carp & Carp, 1984) is a necessary prerequisite for independence and well-being and thus for quality of life in old age, especially when people suffer from severe competence loss. Additionally one may consider that housing conditions for older adults have long been different in East and West Germany and have improved since reunification especially in East Germany. However, Gerontology often focus solely on the supportive quality of housing conditions, intending to keep older adults independent as long as possible. Less attention has been paid to the subjective experience of home and its impact on autonomy and quality of life.
