Conducting a Mixed-Methods Study with Older Adults in Five Languages: Lessons from the Field.

Can J Aging 2020 Jun 19:1-10. Epub 2020 Jun 19.

Centre for Hip Health and Mobility, University of British Columbia & Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute, Vancouver.

One third of older adults in Canada are foreign-born, yet there is a dearth of literature on this population. When our team set out to engage in a mixed-methods study on the physical activity and mobility of foreign-born older adults (FBOAs), we found limited guidance. The objective of this Research Note is to share the lessons that we learned in implementing a mixed-methods study in five languages, with 49 visible minority FBOAs from diverse ethno-cultural groups.

Dementia-Friendly Neighbourhoods in Canada: A Carer Perspective.

Can J Aging 2020 Jul 3:1-12. Epub 2020 Jul 3.

School of Social Work, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario.

Based on findings from a study examining the lived experiences of dementia carers in their neighbourhoods, this article offers a vision of what dementia-friendly communities could look like from a carer perspective and in a Canadian context. Twelve carers in Ottawa and its surrounding regions were interviewed using a combination of social network maps, mobile interviews, and participant-driven photography. The findings, organized according to the categories "relationships", "places", and "everyday practices", reveal that many of the carers' choices regarding businesses, services, home location, outings, and everyday practices, are based on a desire to maintain social connections and social citizenship.

Age-Friendly Communities and Cultural Pluralism: Examining Saskatoon's Chinese-Canadian Social Enclave.

Can J Aging 2020 Jun 19:1-12. Epub 2020 Jun 19.

Department of Geography and Planning, Queen's University.

This article uses findings from qualitative interviews to examine the experiences of members of Saskatoon's Chinese-Canadian older-adult community in terms of their realities of aging and access to important geriatric resources. Promoting an understanding of both group experience and a broader conceptualization of age-friendly development, we argue that the notion and implications of a spatial ethnic enclave are replaced in the Saskatoon context by a social enclave. This network of social support is evident in Chinese-Canadian older adults' access to housing, recreation, transportation, and health services. Read More

Aggression and Older Adults: News Media Coverage across Care Settings and Relationships.

Can J Aging 2020 Jun 10:1-12. Epub 2020 Jun 10.

School of Social Sciences and Psychology, Western Sydney University, Penrith, New South Wales, Australia.

Systematic, in-depth exploration of news media coverage of aggression and older adults remains sparse, with little attention to how and why particular frames manifest in coverage across differing settings and relationships. Frame analysis was used to analyze 141 English-language Canadian news media articles published between 2008 and 2019. Existing coverage tended towards stigmatizing, fear-inducing, and biomedical framings of aggression, yet also reflected and reinforced ambiguity, most notably around key differences between settings and relations of care.

Technology Use among Family Caregivers of People with Dementia.

Can J Aging 2020 Jun 9:1-13. Epub 2020 Jun 9.

Neuropsychology & Cognitive Health, Baycrest Health Sciences, Toronto, Ontario.

This study explored family caregivers' use of technology to care for people with dementia living at home. Three questions were pursued: (1) what are the important, unmet needs of family caregivers, (2) how do they use technologies to assist in care tasks, and (3) what do health care providers know about caregivers' needs and technology use? Two comprehensive surveys were developed to answer these questions: one for family caregivers (n = 33), and one for health care providers (n = 60). Descriptive and quantitative analyses showed that caregivers' important, unmet needs were in the domains of information, formal services, and emotional support. Read More

COVID-19: Pandemic Risk, Resilience and Possibilities for Aging Research.

Can J Aging 2020 May 19:1-4. Epub 2020 May 19.

Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Schulich Interfaculty Program in Public Health, Western University, London, Ontario.

The COVID-19 global crisis is reshaping Canadian society in unexpected and profound ways. The significantly higher morbidity and mortality risks by age suggest that this is largely a "gero-pandemic," which has thrust the field of aging onto center stage. This editorial emphasizes that vulnerable older adults are also those most affected by COVID-19 in terms of infection risk, negative health effects, and the potential deleterious outcomes on a range of social, psychological, and economic contexts - from ageism to social isolation.

Assistive Device Use among Community-Dwelling Older Adults: A Profile of Canadians Using Hearing, Vision, and Mobility Devices in the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging.

Can J Aging 2020 May 18:1-16. Epub 2020 May 18.

Department of Community Health and Epidemiology, Faculty of Medicine, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia.

There is increasing recognition that using assistive devices can support healthy aging. Minimizing discomfort and loss of function and increasing independence can have a substantial impact physically, psychologically, and financially on persons with functional impairments and resulting activity limitations, as well as on caregivers and communities. However, it remains unclear who uses assistive devices and how device use can influence social participation. Read More

Nurturing Meaningful Intergenerational Social Engagements to Support Healthy Brain Aging for Anishinaabe Older Adults.

Can J Aging 2020 Jun;39(2):263-283

Department of Family Medicine and Biobehavioral Health, University of Minnesota Medical School, Duluth, Minnesota.

The emergence of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD) in Indigenous populations across Canada is of rising concern, as prevalence rates continue to exceed those of non-Indigenous populations. The Intergenerativity Model, guided by Indigenous Ways of Knowing, nurtures a psychosocial approach to promoting healthy brain aging and quality of life. Community-based participatory action methods led by interviews, focus groups, and program observations aid in identifying the barriers to and facilitators of success for intergenerational social engagements in the Anishinaabe community of Wiikwemkoong in northwestern Ontario.

School of Social Work, Bar Ilan University, Ramat Gan, Israel.

Public opinion on later-life sexuality affects older people's sexual health, behaviour, and satisfaction. In this study, we explored public opinion on later-life sexuality by participants' responding to an open-ended question rather than rank their level of agreement or disagreement with different statements about older people's sexuality. Responses from 135 men and women reflecting on how sexuality changes in older age were thematically analysed. Read More

La recherche en santé autochtone au Canada a été négligée dans le passé et qualifiée de problématique, notamment en raison du manque de collaboration avec les peuples autochtones. L'Énoncé de politique des trois Conseils sur l'éthique de la recherche avec des êtres humains décrit au chapitre 9 la conduite éthique de la recherche axée sur les Premières nations, les Inuits et les Métis. Les principes PCAP® des Premières nations (propriété, contrôle, accès et possession) soulignent l'importance majeure de l'engagement et de la gouvernance autochtones. Read More

Cognitive interviewing is an examination technique based on recall strategies developed in the field of cognitive sciences. Several recent studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of cognitive interviewing in samples of young adults. Read More

Ce projet en application de connaissances a exploré la pertinence d'une documentation en promotion de la santé élaborée pour une population autochtone nationale en vue de son utilisation dans une communauté autochtone urbaine du nord de l'Ontario. Une approche décolonisée et communautaire de recherche-action participative faisant appel à l'épistémologie tribale a été suivie pour former un groupe consultatif autochtone local et établir un partenariat avec le N'Swakamok Native Friendship Centre. Deux groupes de discussion (n=8) composés d'adultes autochtones et cinq entrevues individuelles avec des aidants autochtones soignant une personne atteinte de démence ont alimenté l'analyse thématique qualitative.
