Overview

Make housing for the elderly comfortable, efficient, and appropriate to their special needs!

Today people are living longer lives than ever before, and elderly people need to live in settings that reflect their individual capabilities. They need safe and appropriate homes, appliances, and furnishings that they will not lose the ability to use and enjoy in the years of decline. Housing Choices and Well-Being of Older Adults: Proper Fit addresses the challenge of matching the attributes of residential settings for older adults with the competence of the people who live in them. This book views housing for the elderly as a special case in terms of the person-environment paradigm. It highlights the recurring themes that give housing for the elderly a measure of order and predictability.

Care providers, consultants for retirement communities, researchers in the fields of aging and environment or gerontology, university libraries, and members of housing associations for the elderly will benefit from the timely and vital information in this book. Easy-to-understand charts and tables make the information even more accessible.

Housing Choices and Well-Being of Older Adults discusses:
  • the state of theory development in environmental gerontology
  • housing needs of the elderly
  • quality issues in this type of setting
  • design and development issues
  • kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom applications for elderly people in various states of health
  • home safety issues
  • and much more!
and the issues surrounding continued aging and its implications for:
  • supportive environmental, health, and psychosocial services
  • the economic and financial concerns of aging adults
  • housing management and community issues
Use what you'll find in Housing Choices and Well-being of Older Adults to ensure that the elderly people in your life are comfortable in an environment that is safe and appropriate.
