Inclusive residency and silver cohousing: unity is strenght
Keywords:active ageing, ageing in place, welfare, cohousing
AbstractLong-term demographic dynamics, characterised by increasing life expectancy, low fertility and marital instability, pose major challenges to the Italian welfare, particularly with regard to the care of the elderly and their well-being. Ageing in place and inclusive housing are key elements to foster and promote active ageing. However, in Italy solidarity and silver cohousing projects are still scarce and limited to the sphere of social experimentation. This article presents existing good practices on the territory, which could represent a starting point for rede-signing the Italian housing system in the direction of greater inclusiveness.
