Because we are living longer, traditional arrangements for supporting those with the long-term health issues that come with age are unsustainable. The assisted living agenda is part of the solution. It is about helping people with chronic health conditions to live active, independent and dignified lives. It also includes ways to stimulate new thinking based on contemporary and emerging technologies. Funded by the Technology Strategy Board under the ALIP1 project, this ground-breaking, fully illustrated design guide about assisted living considers the built environment along with the integration of digital infrastructure in homes. It looks in turn at housing standards, ergonomic data, access issues, space standards (including a case study for adapting a typical terraced house), an overview of digital connectivity, and guidance on digital assisted living technologies. This guide is for all those who have to take decisions on the appropriate design, specification, construction and adaptation of 'assisted living enabled' buildings, including architects, developers, designers, builders, various consultants, health care workers, and designers of health care equipment.
