Abstract

Rural Ageing provides an in-depth critical analysis of the ways to ensure that rural settings are places in which older adults can flourish, as well as identifying barriers that can lead to exclusion. In the book, authors speak to the connections of older adults to rural places and how identities of older adults are created and re-created in interaction with the landscapes that are integral to their lives. They also consider ageing in the context of important people in the lives of adults as they reach very old age and the challenges in providing services to older rural adults in widely dispersed communities and in supporting the caregivers. Furthermore, the authors address questions of how communities foster social engagement and connections and undertake critical analyses of community-level influences on inclusion and support of older adults. They cast light on the varied, and often hidden, nature of disadvantage experienced by older rural residents as well as how community settings may create contexts that are ‘age-friendly’ and inclusive.
