This full-colour book provides a comprehensive review of architectural trends in 23 aged care communities (including HammondCare's dementia care home in Miranda, Sydney), featuring outstanding designs from small scale to large campuses and designs that address the opportunities and challenges of ageing populations around the globe.

Each project is presented with photographs, detailed plans and statistics  illuminating the high level of research, planning and community involvement that goes into these advancements in living environments for older people. This resource will appeal to aged care providers, developers, users, and advocates, as well as architects, interior designers, landscapers and other design professionals.

The architect for HammondCare Miranda was Allen Jack + Cottier, who says of the project, "The development is overlaid with a sense of place within each house that is distilled from 'home'."
