Abstract

Finding the best way to develop and fund support for the increasing numbers of older people in society is a political priority. Understanding, measuring, improving and monitoring their overall quality of life (not just the quality of their care) will be the main challenge. This study presents the views of older people with high physical and mental support needs who have described what they want and value in their lives, and proposes a model to assist policy-making, research and practice.
