This report was prepared during research into fire safety design associated with residential occupancies that are predominately older adults.
This report is a summary of a review of available literature, with implications from different aspects and fields of research or interest discussed and areas that require more information and research highlighted. The scope of this report is characteristics of sample populations that relate to older people in residential occupancies. Sample populations that include persons with a range of capabilities are included for comparative purposes, where data directly related to older adults in residential buildings is lacking or minimal. Care facilities are outside the scope of this report. Where references to healthcare or institutional facilities are used, it is only to provide a brief comparative for residential occupancies, especially where there is a current lack of information or directly relevant data.
