by Katherine Hill, Liz Sutton and Lynne Cox.

Publisher: York, U.K. Joseph Rowntree Foundation 2009Description: PDF.Notes: URL: 'http://www.jrf.org.uk/publications/managing-resources-later-life' Checked: 2/06/2009 11:31:15 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success response Retirement & ageingSummary: "This report explores the changing lives of older people and shows how resources are used to manage change and maintain stability. An ageing population continues to be of policy concern, in relation to meeting the needs of older people now, and for future welfare provision. This research explores how older people plan, use and value the different resources available to them. Resources are broadly defined, to explore the relative value of different structural, social and individual resources and how they interlink. This holistic overview highlights the complexity of older people s lives, the variety of resources that people draw on to help manage change and the work involved in maintaining continuity and preventing change. In-depth interviews with people (aged 65 84 at the first interview) were conducted two years apart to explore their changing needs and resources as they move through later life." -- Publisher website.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
