Not Loneliness Facilities that can be rented probably would be particularly popular, Musson says, adding that research by his firm and for the book shows lhat: There must be no disengagement from the community—"privacy, yes, bul not loneliness, and stores and medical care mus^t be [close. Location is important." Careful design to avoid injury or inconvenience. Stimulating surroundings—"We !can build housing which isn't merely a storage place (or people lo vegetate ns they grow older, but n living environment, enabling them to live full, creative lives ..."
