Older-People-Researchers’ Views of Appreciative Inquiry


A study for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation Older People’s steering group which adopted AI as its framework recruited older people as researchers. This gave them an experience they had never had: they were partners and contributors to the study, not just subjects. The process encouraged them to see new possibilities and uncovered hidden expertise. The study challenges the assumption that older people are a social problem to be solved by external experts.

Additional Information about this product

Glenda Cook’s first career as a nurse prompted her interest in care for older people. In recent years she has focused on researching older people’s experience of services, particularly living in care homes, and the devel- opment of methodologies that promote researching with older people rather than doing research about them.


Elsie Richardson (now aged 81) has worked with many older peoples’ groups since retirement. She is a member of Northumbria’s research team and has just been granted a research stu- dentship bursary to start her PhD in October. She is vice chair of North East OPAG, and North East Forum on Ageing.
