Well-Being of Older People in Ageing Societies
Well-Being of Older People in Ageing Societies poses answers to the question of how we can measure and conceptualize the well-being of older people. It focuses on the future research agenda and policy reforms that will be necessary to maintain a decent well-being for older people, given the context of our ageing populations. This book draws on longitudinal datasets and empirical research on the multidimensional measures of older people’s welfare, providing a comparative analysis of social assistance and pensions for older people in the UK and The Netherlands. This title will be essential reading to anyone with an interest in gerontology and the effect society, public policy and governance can have on the welfare of older people.
'...a very useful tool for scholars interested in the conceptual and methodological issues arising from the study of well-being in old age.' The Journal of Social Policy '... a book to study more than just read, and it gives many statistical tables to aid that process. It helpfully concludes with suggestions for further research.' SRA News
