Enabling older people to live independently: a shared responsibility of citizens and municipality

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


This paper studies concepts for assisted living
for independently living older people. This is an important issue, as the
number of independently living over-75s increases rapidly, and their
needs and wishes are more explicit and diverse than before. This paper
aims to explore the difficulties that emerge with respect to connecting
to these needs and wishes. It scrutinizes two Dutch initiatives related
to assisted living.
