Rurality and ageing well: ‘a long time here’

Chapman, Sherry Ann and Peace, Sheila (2008). Rurality and ageing well: ‘a long time here’. In: Keating, Norah ed. Rural Ageing: A good place to grow old? Bristol, UK: The Policy Press, pp. 21–32.




This chapter examines the interdependence of older women within the rural areas where they live. It tries to determine whether these are good places in which to grow old, and whether the physical and social character of these places influences the sense of self of the participants in later life. A comparison and contrast of the lives of people living in two distinct locations in the Western world — rural Canada and semi-rural England — is included.
