Better housing and living conditions for older people: Case studies from six European cities

Georg Gottschalk (Editor), P. Potter (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportAnthologyResearch

Abstract

There is an increasing emphasis on strategies designed to combat the exclusion of older people from society. The development of social policies oriented towards community care and community living has important consequences for housing policies and urban planning policies. How can the general housing stock and local neighbourhood facilites be made more responsive to the demands of older people? How can housing and planning measures contribute to the integration of older people in local communities? How can urban renewal be implemented in elderly-friendly forms? What forms of coordination are necessary between social service and housing agencies? This report contains examples of good practice from six European cities: Birmingham, Vicenza, Copenhagen, Berlin, Amsterdam, and Niorth. The research study was supported by the European Commission.
