Person-environment fit and quality of care

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Here I will discuss some of the proposed aspects of quality of care in ageing as presented in
this volume. I will use empirical findings from a study on meaning-making of ageing and later
life among people living in the Faroe Islands to argue for the necessity of taking the person-
environment fit seriously as a way to evaluate the quality of care given and to suggest
options for improving it. Cultural psychology will form the theoretical point of departure.
Additionally, notions from critical gerontology will form part of this chapter, which means that policies and practices are challenges by examining on which they have evolved.
