  • Abstract in English : A small town/village green site plan and 60 acres of Wetlands, woods and meadows meets multiple needs at New England’s first life-care community. The greying of America is creating new challenges for professional service providers. Life-care communities serve a vital need, and demographics suggest that they cab be financially rewarding enterprises. But designers and developers must be genuinely sensitive to the elderly. Landscape architects can help lead the way in creating stimulating, refreshing environments that eliminate the sense of confinement and rigidity that all too often accompanies housing for the elderly
