Abstract: This study seeks to establish a working definition of contributions, related to older adults, from the perspective of stakeholder groups elders, caregivers to elders, practitioners, and policy makers. A secondary content analysis was conducted on 4 group interviews of stakeholder groups. Findings supported the conceptual framework of the Welfare Diamond, whereby elders make contributions to various sectors that constitute society. Further, stakeholders identified invisible contributions, as well as the darker side of making contributions, as important elements of contribution. Findings help to establish an inclusive definition of contribution and to highlight where more research may be needed.
