dc.description.abstract The aim of this research was to explore, through strengths-based assessment, the challenges and strengths of a limited number of alcohol dependent older persons in order to make recommendations for integrated social work services. Fifty-six participants were recruited through non-probability sampling techniques. This article indicates how challenges such as the change of roles during old age and limited social interaction, could be addressed. Furthermore, strengths such as the support of a marital partner and grandchildren, were identified which could be used as a point of departure when recommending integrated social work services through which alcohol dependent older persons could be empowered to overcome their obstacles. For example, it is recommended that older persons be utilised as mentors to transfer their skills and knowledge to younger generations. It is recommended that further research is conducted which would expand on this study to eventually formulate a national integrated strategy for the management of alcohol dependency among older persons. en_US
