The BRAID Project is developing a holistic roadmap that covers all areas of a person’s life. The roadmap is focused on four different perspectives, the “Life Settings”: Independent Living; Health and Care in Life; Occupation in Life; and Recreation in Life.

These settings correspond to the main areas of life of a person in general, and will need to be supported as we are ageing. The settings stand for priorities in life, and are not location-based or mutually exclusive. In principle, not all elderly citizens may need equal support in all of the above areas. However, the significance of defining these four settings is that they comprehensively cover the main aspects related to active ageing and well being of the elderly.

This booklet presents a collection of illustrative scenarios for the different life settings.
