Siinviidatu leidis oma koha väga huvitava metoodika tõttu, kuigi ka uurimisaine on huvitav.

Kontekstiks väga tõsised numbrid:

With the global population aged 60 and over being expected to rise from 962 million in 2017 to 2.1 billion in 2050 (UN News, 2017), internationally, ageing policies encourage older people to age in place, which refers to older people living in their own homes and community for as long as possible rather than in residential care (Frank, 2002)

Kodu muutub olulisemaks … vanemas eas:

argues that attachment to home is especially significant for older people’s health and well-being because of the greater amount of time they spend at home, and the significance of home in preserving a sense of identity, belonging and independence in older age (Chaudhury and Rowles, 2005).

Eesmärk:

This study aims to advance an understanding of how the meaning of home is constructed by older Chinese migrants in Australia, who are operationally defined in this study as older migrants who were born in mainland China or Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR). […] We conceptualize older migrants’ acculturation as constructing a sense of home in the new country and explore the processes through which older Chinese migrants rebuild social connections, identity and belonging as they age in Australia.

Metoodikast:

We asked each of them to provide us with two photographs that signified the concept of home to them, and then used those photographs as elicitation tools and discussion points for interviews.

Addressing this challenge involves building a sense of home through negotiating identity, belonging, and rebuilding social networks in the host country.
