Abstract

CARE TO THE OLDER ADULTS IN A NATURAL DISASTER BY FAITH-BASED LEADERS: A STUDY BASED ON GROUNDED THEORY

Dr. Mercy Joseph*

ABSTRACT

The content of the present research is extracted from a PhD dissertation (Published in ProQuest 2016) that explored how faith-based leaders cared for community-dwelling older adults in a natural disaster. The research focused on Hurricane Sandy (Superstorm Sandy) which affected Long Island, New York, in October 2012. This study is purported to answer the research question: How faith-based leaders cared for community-dwelling older adults in a natural disaster such as Hurricane Sandy? Participants were male or female faith-based leaders (ordained leaders of their religious congregation) who were involved in caring for community-dwelling older adults in Long Island, New York during Hurricane Sandy (2012). A total number of 16 faith-based leaders were interviewed. This qualitative research utilized the Grounded Theory methodology of Strauss and Corbin (1998). Faith-based leaders identified that, during and immediately after a natural disaster, contact with the community, especially older adults, and providing need-based care are of prime importance for the better recovery. These categories with its conceptual parameters are explained in this article.
