Abstract

This thesis adopted a transformative paradigm to examine cultural and moral influences in shaping views of ageing and wellness amongst older Straits Chinese Australians. It shows that familialistic care expectations are influenced by an individual's moral creed; specifically, the tendency to view the world from more collectivist or individualist perspectives. Drawing on Nancy Fraser's work, this study highlights the importance of embedding a social justice lens in policy formation to better understand the challenges experienced by non-English speaking migrant families in equitably accessing care support. This thesis concludes by introducing the Ageing in Place with Wellness Systems Theory Framework.
