Seniors in rural areas are vastly under-researched compared to their urban counterparts. This innovative book offers a unique interdisciplinary perspective on this issue, focusing on seniors’ roles as assets in rural civic society. The authors examine the ways in which rural elders are connected to community and place, the contributions they make to family and neighbors, and the organizations and groups to which they belong. They explore topics such as financial security, leisure, access to services, mobility, civic engagement, and digital inclusion, offering a comprehensive look at the lives of older people that challenges problem-focused views of aging in rural areas.
