Current social policy recognises that older people should be treated as experts in their own lives and be actively involved in their care. This book explores what can be learned from older people's experiences of managing ageing. Direct connections are made between the everyday experiences and perspectives of older people, related research and theoretical perspectives. This yields an engaging and informative analysis of how older people manage the ageing experience and what this means for policy and practice directed at promoting older people's wellbeing. The book will be of value to undergraduate and postgraduate students in health and social care and practitioners in these fields.
Pamela A. Saunders, Georgetown University
“Written for academic and policy audience . . . stories woven with the realities of dealing with the support system . . . rigorous qualitative research methods and analysis of [the author’s] interview data.”
