Calidad de vida y envejecimiento: la visión de los mayores sobre sus condiciones de vida. The monograph analyses the ageing phenomenon from the perspective of older people who are getting older at home and is based on a range of data on quality of life and home conditions. These include a survey of older people in Madrid; population and housing censuses; and population registers. The findings have implications for policy directed to maintaining older people in their homes with the highest quality of life.La monografía ofrece un análisis del envejecimiento desde la perspectiva del individuo mayor que envejece en casa, a través del conocimiento de las condiciones y de la calidad de vida de esta población.
