Geographies of Transport and Ageing

Geographies of Transport and Ageing By Angela Curl
English | EPUB | 2018 | 264 Pages | ISBN : 3319763598 | 1.37 MB
This book presents a unique geographical perspective on issues of transport and mobility for ageing populations. Society is ageing across the globe. As well as living longer, older people are fitter, healthier and more active than previous generations were. There is both a desire and a need to be mobile in later life and mobility is clearly linked to older people's health and wellbeing. Yet mobility can be hard for older people and we don't always design our neighbourhoods, towns, cities and villages in an age friendly way.
