Residents in nursing homes
MetadataShow full item record
In our society elderly people have a greater diversity of living arrangements than any other group - most live independently in their own homes - some with spouses, some alone, some with their children and grandchildren, some with relatives of their own age. Some live in boarding houses, retirement villages, hospitals, hostels, nursing homes the spread really is very wide, and it is important to recognise the needs of people in different dwelling arrangements and the degree to which independence can be fostered and strengthened.
