Aspects of social care: How ethnicity and religion pattern health and social care needs in later life

Dr Ros Willis, Professor of Gerontology, University of Southampton

Ros is interested in research on support and care in later life, and much of her work has a focus on ethnic diversity. She is originally from County Meath in the Republic of Ireland, and her experience as a first generation migrant to Britain has influenced her research interests. Questions she has considered in her research include: What are the determinants of informal support, and what evidence is there for or against the stereotypes surrounding ethnicity and care? How do people from different ethnic groups talk about motivations for providing care? Why do people from minority ethnic groups report lower satisfaction levels with social care services than people from white groups? Her research aims to provide recommendations to policy makers and practitioners to ensure services meet the needs of the whole community.
