Taupaenui: Maori positive ageing
Mr Edwards investigated the characteristics of Maori positive ageing using research approaches based on Maori knowledge and Western science. He found three key elements: it is primarily located within a Maori worldview; it may be considered a life-long process not only concerned with the standing of older people but also with the adoption of a proactive ageing process that fosters resilience and provides for Maori to share equitably in the benefits of society; Maori collectives have a critical role to play by making compensatory actions more achievable and promoting an approach to ageing that begins well before old age itself.
