Personal profile

Personal information

Marjolein Broese van Groenou (1959) holds a Fenna Diemer Lindeboom Chair in Informal Care in a Changing Society. She is Director of Research of the Department of Sociology and a member of the Departments Management Team and theme leader of the Institute of Societal Research's theme Care and Welfare in a resilient society. Since 1992 she is a senior member of the research team of the Longitudinal Aging Study Amsterdam and chair of the LASA-Care team. She is chair of the James Coleman Association, the alumni network of ICS PhD-students in sociology.

Teaching

Teaching involves courses on the bachelor level in social capital and research methodology. At the master level I teach a on theories and policies regarding societal participation (Arbeid, burgerschap and social participation). Supervision of master theses involve subjects on societal functioning and population ageing: social networks, intergenerational solidarity, informal care, care networks, health and wellbeing in later life. I give guest lectures on long term care in changing societies to other faculties and universities.

Research

Her research interests are on the social functioning of older adults in an ageing society. Her research is largely embedded in the Longitudinal Aging Study Amsterdam (LASA), an ongoing study on functioning of older adults. Publications include the interplay between social network relationships and health, social inequality in health and care, family caregiving, trends in use of informal and formal care over time, and the use of care at the end of life. Additional topics concern the collaboration between formal and informal caregivers of community-dwelling older adults, studied in the project Care networks of frail older adults, both from the perspective of individual helpers as from the perspective of the care organization. Another research project focuses on how employers and employees can facilitate the combination of work and care.

Grants

Over the years she received multiple grants from the National Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) for PhD-projects on family caregiving, older couples, widowhood and divorce. Multiple grants are also received from the National Organisation for Health Research and Development (ZonMw) for projects on care networks of frail older adults, work and care, and gender differences in the burden of caregiving. The most recent grant is from NWO-Open Research Area for In-CARE, an international project (with partners in UK, Germany and Japan) on how long term care policies impact on inequality in care and wellbeing.
