    Description

    The author discusses the role of home and neighborhood in the lives of old people and explores the impact of the physical and social organization of these spaces on an old person's perception of his immediate environment and his subsequent activity patterns. Home and neighborhood reinforce an old person's sense of identity and mediate between the old person and the larger society. Information about the meaning of home and neighborhood in the lives of old people contributes to the data available to those making the decisions that affect the distribution of social and physical resources in our cities.
