Place of publication:
London

This case study highlights a toolkit, created by Bournemouth University in partnership with Dorset County Council, to develop peer support in sheltered housing services. The toolkit defines the concept of kindliness as it relates to sheltered housing. It outlines interventions trialled during the development of the toolkit which can be used to created the culture change often necessary to optimise peer support and kindliness in sheltered housing. These include Performance poetry and Forum Theatre, which were used to understand the concerns of seldom heard people. The case study also highlights some the barriers to kindliness and what embedding a culture of kindliness should involve. It is set against a background of reduced funding for support services which resulted in plans to end the sheltered housing service funded by Dorset County Council in April 2018.

Place of publication:
London

A case study of a review of services in five sheltered schemes and three linked semi-sheltered schemes for older people, carried out by Pembrokeshire Housing. Based on co-production principles, the review included full engagement with residents and used their unique expertise as a prerequisite for designing a service that would meet the needs of older people now and in the future. The case study looks at the stages of the co-production process and outlines key learning points. Learning points included being open and honest with residents, which helped develop trust and ensuring co-production is a genuine process. The co-production process also led to the identification of untapped resources among staff and residents. (Edited publisher abstract)

The rhythm of ageing amongst Chinese elders in sheltered housing

Author:
LEE Siew-Peng
Journal article citation:
Ageing and Society, 34(9), 2014, pp.1505-1524.
Publisher:
Cambridge University Press

This paper examines how some elderly Chinese tenants in a cluster of housing schemes in the north of England differed in their perception, consciousness and management of time. It examines how there was too much or too little time for some of these tenants and how time played a part in their personal and social identification arising from their experiences of migration. Lefebvre's concept of rhythmanalysis is intended to be a transdisciplinary theory that could be used to theorise ‘everyday life’. The writer superimposes this concept on the activity and disengagement theories of ageing to add meaning to the ethnographic data gathered and argues that ageing is not a simple matter of activity or disengagement. These Chinese elders coped with change through a flexible and ongoing process of adapting to different rhythms of life. This paper aims to contribute to the empirical understanding of ageing for a minority in Britain and to present a novel theoretical perspective on research approaches to ageing. (Publisher abstract)
