Understanding the Needs of Older People

Understanding the Needs of Older People

Alison M Johnson and Helen Hickman Morris, 2001

The first paper, written by the Centre Consultant and delivered at the Leveson Centre on 9 June 1999 outlines a framework within which we might understand the needs of older people. It covers the demographic background and its implications for an ageing population. It looks at government legislation in the nineties and concludes with a section on positive ageing, quoting John Wesley who wrote at the age of 83 'I am a wonder to myself. I am never tired either with writing, preaching or travelling.'

The complementary paper, written by Helen Hickman Morris and delivered at the Leveson Centre on 15 June 2000 is an insightful and reflective piece about her experience of being old. She considers her beliefs, her problems at this stage of her life and the diminishments she inevitably has suffered. She concludes with a list of her spiritual needs which she believes apply at any stage of life but particularly in old age.
