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.

"... a very useful set of papers ... recommended to policy makers, practitioners and students." Journal of Social Policy "... an interesting addition to the library of anyone interested in the misfit between current housing provision and a rapidly ageing population." SPA News
"... an impressive overview and discussion of central concepts and ongoing discussions in this field." Housing Studies "... excellent text ... deserves to be read by activists in pensioner forums, by housing and social services officers, and carers alike. Indeed this book should be read by anyone who has an interest in how we should be housing our older people in the coming century." Roof
"... essential reading for social policy, health care and housing studies students. It should also be on the 'must have' list for practitioners and policy makers whose work increasingly takes them into the inter-face between health, housing and social care."
