Example text

At the same time, however, some older people with limited mobility report feeling trapped within the confines of their home, a theme explored by geographer Graham Rowles in his pathbreaking book Prisoners of Space? in 1978. While Rowles’ study refuted the notion that older people’s worlds were small, Percival highlights the challenges of scale when lived environments are small-scale. Participants in his study criticised the size of their homes and the accessibility and maneuverability issues this poses.

Indeed, in this context research by Biggs et al. (2000) explores narratives of those living in retirement communities, which are argued to contain the best elements of both RCFs and home. The authors employed a multi-layered approach examining four dimensions of settings: the way that the communities are represented in printed promotional material; the experiences of residents who dwell within the community; the influence the RCF has on well-being; and the metaphors, meanings and themes that connect both representation and experience of retirement communities.
