There is a growing need for leisure professionals to understand the correlation between the ageing process and its relationship to leisure. This book is designed to help identify ways leisure can contribute to later life. It links the aging process and leisure to Ulyssean living, the willingness to be open to new ideas and opportunities, to seek new adventures and opportunities. Part one helps develop an understanding of what happens as people age. Part two explores leisure and its role in later life. Part Three examines the environment where ageing occurs.
