Objects of Loss: Resilience, Continuity and Learning in Material Culture Relationships in

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in a book

Abstract

This chapter argues that two important variables affecting resilience in older adults include a sense of attachment to place and investment in a personal material culture. “Investment” here does not refer to monetary value or material worth, but instead to the degree to which the objects that matter in an individual’s life are imbued with meanings over time, as expressed in part in complex, private choices about care and display.
