Abstract

This chapter focuses on the role of the environments where older people live on the quality of their lives. To understand the dynamic that connects environment to identity the suthors looked at a wide variety of accommodation and neighbourhoods. The authors downgrade rigid formulations of quality of life in favour of the dynamic strategies that people bring and make for themselves a 'life of quality' - revealing a higher and more complex engagement with their physical environment than was previously throught the case.
