There are many issues to consider regarding growing older. Who decides if a person is safe, living alone in a large house? Should large houses just be for families with children? Should the amount of help someone needs to stay in a large home be dependant on how much money they have?

Attikos, you make a very strong case. I think of my own mother and how she loves her garden. How can you give up what you know and love at a time when you may feel vulnerable? Again more questions. Thanks for answering.
I disagree, because you seem to be reducing the elderly to objects. As always, it's up to the individual what to do with their lives.
I agree with this comment.
Thanks Shining for sharing this example with us. I agree that health is the biggest issue.
I just mean service providers like cleaners or carers and nursing staff.
I think people who prefer to live alone in big homes would have it all figured out long before their 70s.
To begin with, to chose to live in big homes require all those planned. Maintenance without sacrificing privacy...after all it is their reason..
Strange then that you choose to answer a human rights question.
