A Better Life – what older people with high support needs value – Joseph Rowntree Foundation – 29 November 2011

“What do older people with high physical and mental support needs say they want and value in their lives?

Part of the JRF’s A Better Life programme, this paper:

explores the views of older people and the factors that help or hinder them; and
proposes a model which demonstrates how their needs could be met.

The circular model combines aspects of well-being older people say they value with the factors that they claim help or hinder their quality of life.

The older person is at the centre of the circle as a “reminder that this is about diverse individuals and what they want from their lives, not what services and policies decide they can have”.
