ESRC Festival of Science 2019

co-researchers in panel discussionOur Solihull team took part in the ESRC Festival of Social Science 2019 and created an audio film based on our research  into the experiences of older people who pay for their own care.

It tells the story of John and Muriel Jones, an elderly copuple who find they suddenly need to find care at home after Muriel has had a fall. The story, told in a series of ‘talking heads’ by characters representing the people involved shows how difficult it can be for people to find the care they want at a time when they are most vulnerable.
