I trained as a Sociologist and have worked on various health and gender research projects. I have expertise in qualitative methodology applied in NHS, primary care and community settings. My PhD considered the challenges women face returning to the workplace after having a child. I took this forward when I conducted research into flexible working practices and small firms and family friendly policies. More recently I have conducted research in failing hospitals and on inter-professional working. My current interests are in housing an ageing population.
How the oldest old make decisions about moving later in life. Anticipating and making plans to move to age appropriate housing in later life is associated with proactive coping skills. Having the capacity to plan for appropriate housing in later life is linked to higher levels of income, education and younger populations. The majority of the oldest old make reactive moves following illness, a fall or hospitalisation. In my current work I examine moving in very late life (95+) comparing the decision making associated with proactive and reactive moves. Qualitative data from the Cambridge city 75 Cohort Longitudinal study included a sample of 26 participants who had moved aged 95+. Only one participant made a proactive move, most (25) had moved due to a reactive response to a health crisis. Reactive moves were typically triggered by falling and a period of hospitalisation. These findings inform the further development of existing models of decisions about moving in later life.
