Chapter six focuses on older people. It reviews the changing discourses, identities and lifestyles that characterise this group, before examining the housing and support policies towards them in Britain and Sweden. This is followed by an evaluation of the supported housing options available in the two countries using the headings of ‘home’, ‘neighbourhood’ and ‘well-being’ to structure the available evidence.
