This book examines the growing importance of positive psychology and its connection to later life.

  • Applies Social Role Valorisation (SVR) principles to care of older people, particularly those with seriously disabling conditions such as dementia, stroke, and multiple health problems

  • Provides a comprehensive body of positive principles and practical approaches for those who care for older people

  • Examines the impact of the devaluation of older people’s lives in the context of societies dependent on technology 

  • Demonstrates how more age-inclusive societies and open awareness of later-life issues are fundamental to strong communities, as well as to personal happiness and resilience
