This chapter discusses three types of housing provision that represent different stages in the evolution of policy on housing the general population and those defined as ‘vulnerable’ — high-rise housing, sheltered housing, and care housing for people with dementia. It highlights developments and issues for these three types of housing and care environments and examines whether and how age-segregated environments affect older people's interactions within and beyond their immediate accommodation. In addition, the three studies provide differing views of how accommodation and support may be offered in the future and raise questions regarding the interface between people and places and what it tells about technological and social management systems.

Keywords:   housing provision, high-rise housing, sheltered housing, care housing, dementia, age-segregated environments
