Abstract [en]

Ageing populations comprise of many frail individuals who need care and support. In some cases, this need exceeds the help that families can provide. When this happens, social care services come into play. However, the help and support that older people need is not uniform. The challenges that older people face differ, and so do the support strategies that older people prefer. Consequently, social care providers need a deeper understanding of life-courses if they want to design care services that suit the older individuals’ needs and that can easily be understood and accepted by the older individuals. This chapter explains how social care providers can learn from the life-courses of the care-recipients, using older migrants in Sweden as an example.
