So, what is quality of life? How do we define genuine caring?

As human beings, we are inclined to pay more attention to the negative rather than the positive, to see the limitations rather than the possibilities. Our language and our societal perceptions reinforce the view that aging and/or living with physical, developmental, intellectual, or psychological challenges equals decline or disability.

Well-being, as a frame of reference, requires us to focus on the strengths, possibilities, dreams, and goals of each individual. Doing so, we define quality of life in terms of what each individual can do and what they have to offer their communities.

Well-being is the path to a life worth living. It is the ultimate outcome of a human life. It leads us to ask the following questions:

What are the components of well-being? What do we need to experience contentment?
