Method: Semi-structured interviews were conducted with seven older people living in a UK care home. Thematic analysis of transcripts was undertaken and was informed by a critical realist epistemology.
Results: Four main themes emerged from the analysis: 1. Belonging and Connection: an integral need, 2. Self-esteem and Validation: maintaining a unique presence, 3. Freedom and Control: negotiating authorship of life, and 4. Occupation and Growth: a search for meaning.
