Book summary: where and how older people live can have a huge impact on their quality of life. Our Homes, Our Lives explores what housing choices are available as we grow older, and challenges some of the stereotypes that surround older people, which have in the past influenced housing and care policy. It aims to open up this debate and get those involved in shaping and providing services to take a fresh look at the issue, from the viewpoint of older people.
