Li X, Keady J & Ward R (2021) Visual stories and living with dementia: Developing and co-constructing a neighbourhood map with Diane and Dave to represent ageing-in-place. In: Williams S & Keady J (eds.) Participatory Case Study Work: Approaches, Authenticity and Application in Ageing Studies. Routledge Advances in Research Methods. Abingdon, Oxon: Routledge.
This chapter focuses on how Diane, as a person living with dementia, and her husband Dave were encouraged to define and socially construct their own ‘lived neighbourhood’. The participatory case study work used a variety of narrative and storytelling methods to empower the couple to define the characteristics of their neighbourhood and the spaces, places and people that were meaningful to ageing-in-place. The final product of this endeavour helps to extend thinking on the relational and biographical properties of a neighbourhood.
