It is becoming increasingly important that purpose-built, or adapted buildings and grounds are sensibly planned for the elderly and disabled. This has not always been so. This book provides coverage of general principles and technical details for the design and management of open space for this particular section of the population, ranging from the grounds of residential accommodation, sheltered housing, and the private garden, including topics such as access and safety or plantings for physical pleasure and minimal exertion. This title should be useful reading for the following groups: professional people training or practising privately or those in local authorities such as architects, landscape architects, garden designers, planners, housing developers, occupational therapists, or persons in the caring professions and charities concerned with this client group.
