This chapter examines the trajectories of health, wealth and living arrangements among older people in the U.S. It suggests that the notion that interaction of health and wealth is moderated by where elderly persons live. The findings indicate that remaining in the lowest wealth quartile is most likely when an elderly person lives in a nursing home and least likely when this person lives with others.

Keywords: health; wealth; living arrangements; older people; U.S.; nursing home
