Summary
"In Aging, Autonomy, and Architecture, Benyamin Schwarz and Ruth Brent bring together many of the leading researchers and practitioners in the field to examine various aspects of the design and function of assisted living facilities. Concentrating on those characteristics that foster autonomy, the contributors offer case examples that bridge the gap between theory and practice. They comment on issues that include health care, the special needs of assisted living for persons with dementia, the importance of marketing and management, and the design of culturally sensitive facilities. The book will be a valuable resource for researchers, designers, and policy makers, as well as for students in gerontology and in architecture."--Jacket
