Valuing capabilities in later life: the capability approach and the Brotherhood of St Laurence aged services

Social isolation Ageing Families Australia

This study examined what the Brotherhood’s aged service users value in life, what enables them to live meaningful lives and what the services can contribute to this. The capability approach is used as a conceptual framework in which to consider a new model of aged services which will affirm older adults’ human rights and capabilities, especially for those who have been disadvantaged, and ensure that their views shape policies, services and practice.
