Abstract

This study aims to examine housing typologies for older adults in the light of three qualitatively examined exogenous factors: policy, societal and technological changes. The developments in inpatient and semi-residential care facilities for older adults have been mapped from 1945-2016 using quantitative data. Using this data five transition periods can be distinguished.
This research shows that the classification of inpatient, semi-residential and outpatient living may no longer be applicable in its current form. Through exogenous factors new typologies have emerged and this paper proposes a classification as a foundation for further research into housing typologies for older adults.
