AnnotationThis report examines the experience of shared living in a variety of settings: from house sharing to small groups living both in the community and within institutional residences. Using examples from the US and UK, a comparative perspective is offered wherever possible. The difficulties and achievements common to sponsored arrangements in shared living are described, as is the extent to which shared living is a viable option for older people. (RH).
