The housing problems of older people in our society are highly topical because of the growing number of retired people in the population and, especially, the yet-to-come increasing number of 'very old' people. Government policies on the care of older people have been forthcoming from Whitehall, but the issue of housing is just beginning to be seriously addressed. 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 people as they age. Inclusive housing in an ageing society will appeal to a wide audience - housing, health and social care workers including: housing officers, architects, planners and designers, community regeneration workers, care managers, social workers and social care assistants, registered managers and housing providers, health improvement staff and, of course, current and future generations of older people.

* If most older people want to remain in their own homes, then why does residential care persist?The authors of this timely book set out to answer this pressing question and offer an explanation as to what makes older people give up their homes. Residential care homes provide accommodation for over 300,000 older people in the UK, the majority of whom are in their mid eighties. More than a quarter of the population over eighty five live in institutional settings, most of them in residential care homes. This book offers readers a comprehensive review of the history of residential care, current provision, current practice and an analysis of its future role. Re-Evaluating Residential Care will be invaluable to a wide range of practitioners involved in residential care, as well as students of nursing, social work, gerontology and social policy.
