Abstract

This article aims to increase the understanding of older adults’ participation with<br />home-based service providers. It is critical to ensure that home-based services<br />promote older adults’ ability to live in their own homes, and to participate in daily<br />life and society as long as possible. Exploring older adults’ experiences with<br />participation in home-based service delivery is essential for development and<br />delivery of high-quality services that support older adults’ participation. Older<br />adults with a variety of age-related physical impairments and frequency of homebased<br />services were interviewed. The data was collected by in-depth face-to-face<br />interviews in the older adults’ homes. A constant comparative method inspired by<br />constructivist grounded theory was applied to analyze the data. The study<br />highlights the importance of understanding emotional and intellectual aspects of<br />older adults’ participation, and to recognize their strategies for balancing agency<br />in everyday life.
