Abstract [en]

Many assisted living facilities are located on the outskirts of urban areas. This might be due to lack of available land in central urban areas and the higher land costs associated with central areas of an urban structure. It might also be a result of a presumption that older people need a peaceful and quiet surrounding in old age, close to green areas, which would then be a better alternative than the city centre. However, research has shown that urban living is more health promoting than rural living to older people. This presentation aims to discuss pros and cons of the location of assisted living facilities in central or peripheral urban places. Different aspects will be highlighted with support of the three researchers’ studies of assisted living.
