Teresa and her 87-year old husband are living in a 3rd floor small apartment with no lift in Porto city. She attends classes at a university of the third age and likes participating in social Porto city initiatives. Her husband, who leads a more passive life, has several long-term (chronic) conditions and is becoming more dependent on her. Teresa is increasingly having difficulties taking care of him and while she is concerned about her husband’s health and dependence on her, she would also like to keep leading an active life herself. She is also starting to think about them moving to another, more accessible apartment since climbing the stairs is becoming more and more challenging for her.
