Overview

Quality of Life and Older People provides a critical approach to the conceptualization and measurement of quality of life in social gerontology and health and social care research. The book re-examines what we mean by 'quality of life' in a post-modern world, and examines the impact of continuous personal and social changes on the lives of older people. The authors explore ideas about quality of life in social gerontological literature, and attempt to describe the experiences of older people through both their own self description and analysts representations of their experiences. They present a critique of existing social science theories underpinning conceptions of quality of life, and address operational issues for the use of quality of life in social gerontological research. This book is suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate students of social gerontology, social policy, education, health, medicine and social work, as well as policy makers and practitioners working with older people; researchers and professionals.
