Popis The complexity of later life role sets is increased by its inherent time and context dynamics. In the traditional paradigms of social policy and social gerontology, older people have been regarded mainly as receivers of help, as those in need. However, recent studies have looked more often at older people as a “resource”, as those who provide, contribute, and give. As a result of this “paradigm shift”, their contribution is being recognised on different levels: at a societal level as workers and GDP contributors; at a mezzo level as active members of the community; and at a micro level as a pivotal part of intergenerational solidarity, in particular as care providers within families. The paper provides and introduction to recent discussions on the new roles of older people.
