The lack of time of the younger population to take care of elderly lead to a profound analysis of the new environment as well as a search for a suitable habitat for them. The architecture and building technologies offer a wide range of specific solutions that help to improve the living conditions of the elderly.

This book presents several models of architecture specifically designed for that age group, with details of schemes for geriatric homes, reception centers and special residential projects by architects from various countries.
