Longitudinal study of Ageing in a Retirement Community

The Longitudinal study of Ageing in a Retirement Community (LARC), funded by Anchor Trust, ran from June 2006 to July 2010. The study explored the development and implications of a new purpose-built retirement community at Denham Garden Village, Buckinghamshire. More broadly, LARC was designed to examine longitudinal changes within the village and responses to this new form of care and accommodation for ageing populations.
