Quality of Life and Older People

Synopsis

Quality of life and older people reviews the way that older people talk about their quality of life and how this differs from the ways that younger people, researchers and scientists, policy makers and professionals discuss it. The book challenges the traditional approaches to the meaning and measurement of quality of life in older people by placing older people's accounts at the centre. It draws on a range of behavioural and social science knowledge to present a new way of thinking and understanding about quality of life and older people.
