Inclusive housing in an ageing society: innovative approaches

Peace, Sheila M. and Holland, Caroline eds. (2001). Inclusive housing in an ageing society: innovative approaches. Bristol, UK: Policy Press.



The housing problems of older people ihn our society are highly topical because of the growing number of retired people in the population and, especially, the yet-to-become increasing number of 'very old' people. This book represents a first attempt at bringing together people from the worlds of architecture, social science and housing studies to look at the future of living environments for an ageing society. projecting thinking into the future, it asks critical questions and attempts to provide some of the answers. It uniquely moves beyond the issues of accommodation and care to look at the wider picture of how housing can reflect the social inclusion of older people.
