Abstract

Providing the first UK assessment of environmental gerontology, this book enriches current understanding of the spatiality of ageing. Sheila Peace considers how places and spaces contextualise personal experience in varied environments, from urban and rural to general and specialised housing. Situating extensive research within multidisciplinary thinking, and incorporating policy and practice, this book assesses how personal health and wellbeing affect different experiences of environment. It also considers the value of intergenerational and age-related living, the meaning of home and global to local concerns for population ageing. Drawing on international comparisons, this book offers a valuable resource for new research and important lessons for the future.
