An introduction to the older people who took part in the study, the author, and her research comprises the first chapter of this book. It begins with a brief overview of each participant before establishing the author’s character and perspective as a social worker practitioner/academic. Central to the rationale and methodology of the study is that it is to be grounded in the experiences and perspectives of older people themselves. The chapter aims to make as transparent as possible the research relationships and processes through which understanding of older people’s strategies for managing ageing has been generated. The final part of the chapter considers the rationale for starting with the experiences of older people in order to understand ageing.
