We now turn to some of those subjective measures and evaluations of the quality of life, discussed in the previous chapter. We look at what daily life is like for very old people and the extent to which such feelings as boredom, loneliness and worry are experienced. We also see whether they look forward to the day, what things, such as religious beliefs, family and friends, give pleasure or support, and how very old people themselves regard old age. All these aspects of their lives and feelings are examined in the round, taking note of their possible association with the elderly individuals’ health and disability and their socio-economic circumstances. Differences arising from life in a domiciliary or a communal setting are noted.
