Aging, autonomy, and architecture : advances in assisted living

Author: Schwarz, B., Brent, R.
Year: 1999
Type: Edited Book

Abstract:

With the aging population, an increasing number of people need some type of assistance to maintain their independence. One of the fastest growing options for long-term care is assisted living. The editors of this book bring together many of the leading researchers and practitioners in the field to examine various aspects of the design and function of the assisted living facility. Covers issues that include health care, the special needs of assisted living for people with alzheimers disease and related dementias and the design of culturally sensitive facilities. Includes black & white photographs of various facilities and some floor plans. A valuable resource for researchers, designers and policy makers.
