Managing the ageing experience

Policy Press

This chapter focuses on the relevant policy context and the research methods and processes employed in the study. Specifically, it centers on social care policy by providing an outline of community care reforms and their impact on social work and social care services for older people including recent policy developments and initiatives. The discussion proceeds with a presentation of the research processes and methods used to elicit the needs and perspectives of the older people introduced in the previous chapter. Utilising a qualitative methodology to uncover subjective meanings, the aim is to explore the meanings and consequences for the participants of help not being provided and to examine their experiences and perceptions regarding alternative strategies used to manage difficulties.

Keywords:   social care policy, community care reforms, social work, policy, qualitative methodology
