Abstract [en]

A Japanese Narrative 1992 - 2016.

Applying a Relational Perspective on Ageing, Life and Care

 A qualitative longitudinal study evolved as I followed the Suzuki couple in Japan for more than two decades through life turning points and crises. Would the traditions of filial duty guide their choices, or would the Suzuki couples’ clearly voiced wish to live on their own and take care of themselves be respected?  I have followed their temporary move to their daughter’s residence following upon the 1995 Hanshin Earthquake when they lost their house, their permanent move to a condominium purchased by son, and a couple of years thereafter, the sudden death of Mr Suzuki. Since his death, I met Ms Suzuki every or every other year, last time was in 2016  when she still lived at home (with dementia) and enjoyed regular visits to a day care center

This paper will discuss views on ageing, care and life from a relational point of view and within a life course perspective. This paper also encounters death as part of life and relations    Though a one case study, this paper will also draw on some previous studies in the fields of social and cross-cultural gerontology.
