AnnotationDissertation submitted for the degree of MSc in Social Research, University of Surrey in 1980. The dissertation is a survey of a random sample of older people aged 75 and over living in the community. The focus is on problems and satisfactions within the main life concerns of home, health, social contacts, leisure and finance. The emphasis is mainly subjective, but brief nurse-interviewer assessments have been added. It is suggested that a preventive service can identify actual and potential need, and provide lines of communication for the management of disability, with the aim of helping older people to remain at home.
