This chapter describes the human ecology lens that challenges the different assumptions on growing older in rural areas. This lens is considered as an important element of this book, and is used to regard the various interactions of older adults with the rural contexts that shape their experiences. The discussion tries to establish the structure and the overall approach in the book. It also addresses the question: ‘Are rural communities good places to grow old?’.

Keywords:   human ecology lens, rural contexts, interactions, experiences, rural communities
