International Perspectives on Age-Friendly Cities

Vol. 55. NY: Routledge, 2015.
Под общей редакцией: F. G. Caro, K. Fitzgerald.

The vast majority of resources in public initiatives to support older people are invested in financial security, health care, and long-term care, where the focus is on individual benefits. Community features that collectively benefit residents have received much less systematic attention. This volume explores how the effort to make cities livable for older people is a specialized version of efforts to make cities more livable for people of all ages. The livable community movement coincides with appreciation for development in places with sufficient density to provide walkable distances between residential and commercial areas, and density sufficient to provide the basis for viable public transportation. The book will be of interest to scholars in fields including urban planning, gerontology, transportation planning, environmental design, and adult education.
