Résumé :

This report is about the experience of ageing in two localities. Older people, from across the age spectrum, talk to us about their lives and about their friends, family and the neighbourhoods in which they live. They describe the opportunities and challenges of getting old and shed light on what makes for a 'good life' in old age. Their experiences and views offer insight into the kinds of services and support that might sustain well-being as people get older.
