TSHESEBE, Mpho  and  STRYDOM, Herman. An evaluation of the community-based care and support services for older persons in a specific community. Social work (Stellenbosch. Online) [online]. 2016, vol.52, n.1, pp.i-18. ISSN 2312-7198.

Community-based care and support services for older persons aim at enhancing their quality of life and keeping them in their communities for as long as possible. The aim of this study was to evaluate these services in a specific community, namely the Motheo District, Free State Province. The views of three groups of participants were obtained, namely management committee members from organisations for older persons, older persons benefiting from these services, and social workers involved in these services. Findings from the three groups of participants were triangulated throughout the study and some recommendations were made for enhancing these services.
