As the number of people over age 75--and especially over age 85--increases dramatically in the United States and other industrialized nations, there is a growing need to create and adapt housing for this group of older, more frail citizens. Offering the first systematic comparative analysis of the subject, Housing Frail Elders draws on the experiences of several countries to highlight effective approaches and propose directions for the future.
Chapters present information on housing in several countries. Each is based on the same general outline of topics: demographics, current housing arrangements, approaches to housing policy since World War II, the relative effectiveness of policies, and future directions. Throughout, the contributors emphasize the transferability of experience with programs and policies.
