Department of Social Welfare and Early Child Education, Daedong College, Geum-Jeong-Gu, Dong-Bu-Gok-Ro 27, Beon-Gil 88, Busan, 46270 South Korea.

The study examined the impact of role type and involvement level on psychological wellbeing among 255 South Korean grandparents. Participants in non-baseline role types (those who participated in grandparenting) tended to perceive meaning in their lives and to exhibit relatively low levels of stress and depressive mood. With respect to involvement, stress tended to decrease (β = -0. Read More

Thinking about Later Life: Insights from the Capability Approach.

Authors:
Manik Gopinath

Ageing Int 2018 15;43(2):254-264. Epub 2018 Feb 15.

School of Health, Wellbeing and Social Care, Faculty of Wellbeing, Education and Language Studies, The Open University, Milton Keynes, UK.

A major criticism of mainstream gerontological frameworks is the inability of such frameworks to appreciate and incorporate issues of diversity and difference in engaging with experiences of aging. Given the prevailing socially structured nature of inequalities, such differences matter greatly in shaping experiences, as well as social constructions, of aging. I argue that Amartya Sen's capability approach (2009) potentially offers gerontological scholars a broad conceptual framework that places at its core consideration of human beings (their values) and centrality of human diversity.

Nexus Between Demographic Change and Elderly Care Need in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Countries: Some Policy Implications.

Ageing Int 2017 24;42(4):466-487. Epub 2017 Aug 24.

School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Health, Education and Life Sciences, Birmingham City University, Birmingham, B15 3TN UK.

Population ageing is a phenomenon affecting the whole world. The countries that make up the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) are no exception but transitions in population ageing are still in the early stages of the process. With current demographic dividends experienced by the GCC and the rest of the Middle-East, the pace of population ageing will be faster than that experienced by many European countries. Read More

Ageing and Elderly Care in the Arab Region: Policy Challenges and Opportunities.

Ageing Int 2017 6;42(3):274-289. Epub 2016 Apr 6.

Analytical Research Ltd, Station House, Connaught Road, Surrey, GU24 0ER UK.

Populations are expected to age rapidly in the Arab countries during the coming few decades. However, the current evidence base indicates that many countries in the region are not paying attention to this demographic phenomenon. This is a particular concern as longevity is often accompanied by many years of ill health and disability and most of the countries in the region continue to rely on the family as the primary source of elder care.

Care Needs and Caregivers: Associations and Effects of Living Arrangements on Caregiving to Older Adults in India.

Ageing Int 2016;41:193-213. Epub 2016 Apr 28.

Faculty of Spatial Sciences, University of Groningen, Groningen, The Netherlands.

As the ageing phenomenon continues in India, we explore the care needs of older adults and identify caregivers for specific care needs across living arrangements. Using the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) conducted Building Knowledge Base on Population Ageing in India (BKPAI 2011) data comprising 9850 older adults, we employed statistical methods to analyze the data, find associations and used binary logistic regression to model the adjusted and unadjusted effects of living arrangements on caregiving to older adults for specific care needs. Care-requiring situations considered were acute sickness, sickness requiring hospitalization, chronic morbidity, functional disability represented by ADL and IADL limitations, and locomotor disability.

Trade-off Between Quality, Price, and Profit Orientation in Germany's Nursing Homes.

Ageing Int 2016;41:89-98. Epub 2015 Oct 17.

Institute for Health Systems Research, School of Medicine, Faculty of Health, Witten/Herdecke University, Alfred-Herrhausen-Strasse 50, 58448 Witten, Germany.

International data suggest that for-profit nursing homes tend to provide lower quality than not-for-profit nursing homes. In Germany, the relationships between profit orientation, price and quality of nursing homes have not been investigated. We performed an observational study using secondary data from statutory quality audits of all nursing homes in Germany. Read More

Advancing Research on Productive Aging Activities in Greater Chinese Societies.

Ageing Int 2013 Jun;38(2):171-178

Sau Po Centre on Ageing and Department of Social Work and Social Administration, The University of Hong Kong, Pokfulam, Hong Kong.

The public discourse on productive aging as a research and policy initiative has just begun in greater China. Two conferences in Mainland China in 2009 and 2011 and subsequent conferences in Taiwan and Hong Kong in 2012 have set it in motion. Because applied social science research has just started in greater China, researchers in Chinese societies will benefit from the experience and rich literature accumulated over the last three decades in the West.

Technology Innovation Enabling Falls Risk Assessment in a Community Setting.

Ageing Int 2011 Jun 7;36(2):217-231. Epub 2010 Dec 7.

Approximately one in three people over the age of 65 will fall each year, resulting in significant financial, physical, and emotional cost on the individual, their family, and society. Currently, falls are managed using on-body sensors and alarm pendants to notify others when a falls event occurs. However these technologies do not prevent a fall from occurring. Read More

Reducing Adverse Self-Medication Behaviors in Older Adults with Hypertension: Results of an e-health Clinical Efficacy Trial.

Ageing Int 2011 Jun 8;36(2):159-191. Epub 2010 Dec 8.

A randomized controlled efficacy trial targeting older adults with hypertension (age 60 and over) provided an e-health, tailored intervention with the "next generation" of the Personal Education Program (PEP-NG). Eleven primary care practices with advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) providers participated. Participants (N = 160) were randomly assigned by the PEP-NG (accessed via a wireless touchscreen tablet computer) to either control (entailing data collection and four routine APRN visits) or tailored intervention (involving PEP-NG intervention and four focused APRN visits) group.

An Evidence-Based Adoption of Technology Model for Remote Monitoring of Elders' Daily Activities.

Ageing Int 2010 Sep;36(1):66-81

School of Nursing, MGH Institute of Health Professions, Boston, MA 02129-4557, USA.

What benefit will new technologies offer if they are inadequately or not used? This work presents a meta-synthesis of adoption of technology related findings from four innovative monitoring intervention research studies with older adults and their informal and/or formal caregivers. Each study employed mixed methods analyses that lead to an understanding of the key variables that influenced adoption of telephone and Internet based wireless remote monitoring technologies by elders and their caregivers. The studies were all conducted in "real world" homes ranging from solo residences to multi-story independent living residential buildings. Read More

Diffusion of Technology: Frequency of Use for Younger and Older Adults.

Ageing Int 2011 Mar;36(1):123-145

Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

OBJECTIVES: When we think of technology-savvy consumers, older adults are typically not the first persons that come to mind. The common misconception is that older adults do not want to use or cannot use technology. But for an increasing number of older adults, this is not true (Pew Internet and American Life Project, 2003). Read More
