Ageing in rural Indonesia: Filling the gap to meet the needs of elder persons

The research aims to examine the nature of ageing in rural Indonesia with the  primary focus on biopsychosocial-spiritual needs; the influence of culture and ethnicity on elderly caring model; and family and community resilience. The study also will analyse the influence of welfare reform on the model of social welfare policy for elderly people and how the policy influences the wellbeing of elderly people.
