Bisexual Lives and Aging in Context: A Cross-National Comparison of the United Kingdom and the United States.

Int J Aging Hum Dev 2019 Apr 18:91415019843661. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

2 The Open University, Milton Keynes, UK.

Research on bisexual histories and identities in later life is limited and reflects only single-nation studies. This article compares findings from two independently conducted studies of bisexual aging, in the United Kingdom and the United States, using a discourse analytic and life course perspective. The goals were to compare how participants narrated and made sense of their bisexual experiences in later life and to examine ways in which historical and cultural contexts shaped their accounts.

Later Life Care Planning and Concerns of Transgender Older Adults in Canada.

Int J Aging Hum Dev 2019 Apr 18:91415019843520. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

3 San Francisco State University, CA, USA.

While the particular health-care concerns of transgender people have been documented and transgender aging is an emerging area of scholarship, little is known about planning for later and end-of-life care among transgender older adults. As part of a larger project, focus groups and interviews were conducted with 24 transgender older adults (average age 70 years) living in five cities in Canada exploring their concerns and explicit plans for later life care. Three primary themes emerged: (a) "dealing with the day-to-day" reflecting economic precarity and transitioning in later life, (b) fractures and support within family and community, and (c) "there's a huge gap between principle and practice" reflecting mixed experiences and perceptions of health-care services.

LGBT Older Adults at a Crossroads in Mainland China: The Intersections of Stigma, Cultural Values, and Structural Changes Within a Shifting Context.

Int J Aging Hum Dev 2019 Apr 4:91415019837614. Epub 2019 Apr 4.

2 School of Social Work, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA.

In this article, we explore the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) older adults in mainland China, with an emphasis on the shifting nature of the cultural context. Based on a culturally informed perspective, the intersection of LGBT stigma with cultural values (familial responsibility, filial piety, and loss of face) and larger structural changes (the aftermath of the one-child policy, economic reforms and globalization, LGBT human rights, and HIV policies) are creating dramatic shifts in Chinese society and impacting the lives of LGBT older adults. The increasing prevalence of HIV among gay and bisexual older men, although rarely acknowledged, is also contributing to challenges facing LGBT older adults and their families. Read More

The Context of Caution: An Examination of Age, Social Context, and Sex on Measures of Inhibitory Control and Risky Decision-Making.

Int J Aging Hum Dev 2019 Apr 1:91415019836100. Epub 2019 Apr 1.

1 Department of Psychology, St. Norbert College, De Pere, WI, USA.

Understanding how older adults successfully navigate complex choices like driving requires the consideration of processing speed, inhibitory control, attentional processes, and risk management, and the context within which these decisions occur. The current study employed the Flanker task, the Stoplight task, and a personality inventory with 43 younger adults and 49 older adults either while they were alone or being observed by two same-sex, similarly aged peers. On the Flanker task, older adults performed more slowly, but with comparable accuracy. Read More

Subcultural Spaces: LGBTQ Aging in a Swedish Context.

Int J Aging Hum Dev 2019 Mar 26:91415019836923. Epub 2019 Mar 26.

1 Jönköping university, Sweden.

This study takes its starting point in the Swedish context to explore experiences of community among older lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ) adults. Using life story interviews with 33 self-identified LGBTQ older adults between the ages of 59 to 94 years, our aim is to explore meanings of community, belonging, and subcultural spaces at different times and in different ages. How are narratives of finding, entering, and creating subcultural spaces described, and how does time and geographical context play into these experiences in particular? What is it like to age within these communities and to enter these queer spaces later in life? This analysis illustrates how old age can be a disadvantage for entering or participating in queer subcultures, especially when it comes to dating, but the results also point to how old age can be something adding to one's social capital within these subcultures.

Int J Aging Hum Dev 2019 Mar 21:91415019836929. Epub 2019 Mar 21.

2 University of the Western Cape, Cape Town, South Africa.

There is an almost complete dearth of research on the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) elders in South Africa. This study was a qualitative exploration through focus group discussions of the lived experiences of 22 LGBT people over 50 years of age in the Western Cape and Gauteng provinces of South Africa. Given high levels of poverty and inequality in South Africa, findings from a thematic analysis of participants' narratives foregrounded surprisingly strong themes of inclusion and belonging despite the structural challenges faced by many in South Africa.

Int J Aging Hum Dev 2019 Mar 14:91415019836738. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

7 Recreation and Leisure Studies, University of Waterloo, ON, Canada.

LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) older adults are more likely than their heterosexual peers to age with limited support in stigmatizing environments often poorly served by traditional social services challenging their preparedness for end of life. Fourteen focus groups and three individual interviews were conducted in five Canadian cities with gay/bisexual men (5 groups; 40 participants), lesbian/bisexual women (5 groups; 29 participants), and transgender persons (3 interviews, 4 groups; 24 participants). Four superordinate themes were identified: (a) motivators and obstacles, (b) relationship concerns, (c) dynamics of LGBT culture and lives, and (d) institutional concerns. Read More

Guided by life span development and role theories, the primary study hypothesis was that rewards and stressors in the family and work domains would impact self-perceptions on aging because of the enhancement and conflict between these domains. The study sample consisted of workers older than 50 years with at least one of four family roles (spouse, parent of adult children, caregiver to an aging parent, and grandparent) from the 2010 and 2012 Health and Retirement Study ( N = 5,628).

Development of the Broad Learning Adult Questionnaire.

Int J Aging Hum Dev 2019 Apr 9;88(3):286-311. Epub 2018 Jul 9.

1 Department of Psychology, University of California, Riverside, CA, USA.

Infants and children experience an intense form of intellectual engagement associated with learning a variety of new skills. A recent theory proposes that such broad learning experiences may be the key to maximal cognitive development not just during infancy and childhood but also during adulthood. To begin investigating this possibility, the present questionnaire on broad learning in adulthood builds on prior research on need for cognition, intellectual engagement, personal growth, and leisure activities.

Communicative Predictors of Older Adults' Successful Aging, Mental Health, and Alcohol Use.

Int J Aging Hum Dev 2018 Jan 1:91415018784715. Epub 2018 Jan 1.

1 University of California, Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, CA, USA.

We examined how older adults' communication about age-related topics is related to aging efficacy, successful aging, and well-being. Guided by the communicative ecology model of successful aging, three profiles of "environmental chatter"-that is, patterns of accommodation and overaccommodation older adults received from relational partners-were identified: positive, mixed-positive, and negative. Four profiles of individuals' own age-related communication were identified, including a new profile: gloomy agers. Read More

Int J Aging Hum Dev 2018 Jan 1:91415018780008. Epub 2018 Jan 1.

1 Washington University in St. Louis, MO, USA.

The intergenerational stake hypothesis posits that older people tend to feel more positively about their relationships with younger people in their family because they have a greater perceived "stake" in the relationship. Pairs of grandparents and grandchildren ( n = 79) completed a brief survey that asked questions about relational closeness, shared activities, and relationship quality. Both self- and proxy reports were gathered from each participant. Read More

2 School of Public Health, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

This article explores the intraindividual variability in illness representations of people with multiple chronic conditions and examines how representations of hypertension and arthritis are associated with self-management. Intraclass correlations determined the proportion of within-person variability in illness representations including Timeline, Consequences, Personal Control, and Timeline-Cyclical for 25 adults aged 64 and older. Within-person consistency across illnesses was present for Timeline and Timeline-Cyclical, but variability across illnesses in Personal Control and Consequences. Read More
