This chapter draws on the key themes raised within each of the three parts of the book — revising, rethinking, and refocusing the person-environment fit. It details the contribution of the book to advancing scientific knowledge and addressing the criticisms of a ‘languishing’ state within environmental gerontological literature. It also provides a direction for and next steps to advancing policy and practice in this area, suggesting that society has reached a crucial junction in preparedness for supporting an agenda around ageing in place and more broadly creating positive, enabling, and inclusive neighbourhoods for all.

Keywords:   person-environment fit, environmental gerontology, society, preparedness, ageing in place, neighbourhoods
