  • Expanding current understandings of epistemic injustice and dementia:
           Learning from stigma theory
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Journal of Aging Studies, Volume 48Author(s): Jessica A. Young, Christopher Lind, J.B. Orange, Marie Y. Savundranayagam The current paper addresses the nature of epistemic injustice as it may be experienced by persons with dementia. We describe how theoretical models of stigma align with the current model of epistemic injustice through a consideration of the concepts of ‘stereotype’, ‘prejudice’ and ‘discrimination’, shared by the two models. We draw on current understandings of dementia-related stigma to expand understandings of the epistemic injustice faced by persons with dementia. We discuss how these insights may inform the development of mechanisms to uphold the basic human right to speak, to be heard, and to be believed for persons with dementia.
       
  • Escaping ‘the old fogey’: Doing old age through
           intergenerational friendship
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Journal of Aging Studies, Volume 48Author(s): Catherine Elliott O'Dare, Virpi Timonen, Catherine Conlon BackgroundIntergenerational friendship is a friendship which occurs between differing generations of older and younger adults. Intergenerational friendship as a research topic has received little attention from sociologists of ageing, despite the cultural turn. This study set out to explore and understand intergenerational friendships from the perspective of the older friend.MethodThis research took a qualitative approach using Constructivist Grounded Theory methodology. Twenty-three people aged 65 and over were interviewed in Ireland to attain rich narrative accounts and observational memos were generated.FindingsIntergenerational friendship formed part of the process that shaped the older friends' approach to ageing in their everyday lives (micro level), being influenced by stereotyping and commonly held understandings of ageing and older people in contemporary society (macro level). Engaging with intergenerational friends was congruent with the meaning these participants attached to ‘being old’ or ‘being young’ and how adults ‘should’ be in older and in younger age.DiscussionFor the older adults in this study, ageing is about performance - how they perform as older adults in their pursuits or interests - and not about chronological age. Intergenerational friendship is an integral part of this strategy for doing ageing in a meaningful yet mundane (everyday, taken for granted), way.
       
  • Strategies of older couples to sustain togetherness
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Journal of Aging Studies, Volume 48Author(s): Jenni Riekkola, Stina Rutberg, Margareta Lilja, Gunilla Isaksson The aim of this study was to explore how elderly couples, who are in need of social services in the community, act and reason over time regarding their everyday togetherness. Data were generated through repeated interviews and participant observations with three older couples. A narrative method was used for data generation and analysis. The findings present four parallel narratives illustrating how the couples, over time, strove to continue living their lives in togetherness despite the many challenges that had emerged. These narratives show the complexity and variety of strategies that the couples adopted to handle different situations of everyday life and the couples' experiences and feelings connected to these situations. The strategies that the couples used resulted, for example, in performing more activities together in another way, using respite care and reorganizing their social interactions. The spousal caregiver had a leading role to manage day-to-day life and to initiate and perform the strategies. Simultaneously, an important reciprocity existed in their relationship that gave meaning to their efforts of sustaining togetherness. These findings give a deeper understanding of the complexity of their situation and of how meaning is created in their everyday life through enacted togetherness. The findings highlight the need for professionals within social services in the community to embrace a couple's whole situation, involving both partners.
       
  • Community-level factors that contribute to First Nations and Inuit older
           adults feeling supported to age well in a Canadian city
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Journal of Aging Studies, Volume 48Author(s): Lauren A. Brooks-Cleator, Audrey R. Giles, Martha Flaherty Despite the proliferation of age-friendly cities in Canada that are intended to support older adults to age well, there are still many inequalities between groups of older adults, particularly, and of concern for this paper, between Indigenous older adults, who experience colonialism's ongoing impacts, and non-Indigenous older adults. A better understanding of factors that inform these inequalities will help in the development of policies and programs that better support Indigenous older adults to age well and, thus, will contribute to ameliorating the inequalities that they face. Using a community-based participatory research approach, informed by a postcolonial theoretical lens, in this paper we addressed the question, “what community-level factors contribute to Indigenous older adults (aged 55 years and over) feeling supported to age well in the city of Ottawa'” We specifically examined this question in relation to the age-friendly communities framework, which guides the City of Ottawa's Older Adult Plan. Thematic analysis of semi-structured interviews, focus groups, and photovoice with 32 First Nations and Inuit older adults revealed that the participants felt both supported and unsupported to age well. More specifically, there were two main areas in which they felt they could be better supported to age well: the social environment and physical environment. There were three subthemes within the social environment theme: responsive health and community support services, respect and recognition, and communication and information. Within the physical environment theme there were four subthemes: transportation, housing, accessibility, and gathering space. The results demonstrate that despite there being similarities in the areas that the participants felt they needed support and the areas on which the Older Adult Plan focuses, if the domains of aging well initiatives do not better account for the impacts of colonialism, it is unlikely that they will be effective in supporting Indigenous older adults' health and well-being.
       
  • A logic of choice: Problematizing the documentary reality of Canadian
           aging in place policies
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Journal of Aging Studies, Volume 48Author(s): Nicole K. Dalmer The home environment is pivotal in the lives of older people, intimately intertwined with one's sense of self and belonging. Aging in place (AIP), continuing to live in the same or familiar place or community for as long as possible not only fulfills a neoliberal and economic imperative but aligns with the wishes of a majority of older Canadians, who prefer to age in place. Despite policies' contributions to differing experiences of aging, the potential bearing of the narratives embedded within AIP or age-friendly policies remains unexamined.Within an institutional ethnography method of inquiry, this study applied Bacchi's “What's the Problem Represented to be'” (WPR) approach to structure the discovery of governing narratives about familial care work embedded within seven Canadian aging in place policies at the municipal, provincial, and federal level. I analyzed these policies for their role in coordinating the experiences of caring for an older adult who is aging in place in London, Canada's first age-friendly city. Of particular interest for this study is uncovering whether these texts recognize the work, and in particular the information work, of providing care to an older adult who is AIP.The policies' overall focus on self-reliance, independence, and resourcefulness frames aging in place as a process that can and should be responsibly managed. Information is introduced as a helpful tool to secure and preserve older adults' independence and usefulness to their community. The policies' problematizations frame successful aging in place as governed through a logic of choice, where a complex problem is framed as a matter of choice. Ultimately, however, while the policies offer a number of different “choices” for older adults to AIP, a critical unpacking of the problematizations reveals the choice to AIP to be illusory. There is only one option presented in the policies and that is to AIP.
       
  • Discovering deviance: The visibility mechanisms through which one becomes
           a person with dementia in interaction
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Journal of Aging Studies, Volume 48Author(s): James Rupert Fletcher ObjectivesThis paper explores the emergence of dementia within interpersonal interactions as a matter of deviance and visibility. The sociology of deviance suggests that we rely on assumptions of normal behaviour to help us develop interpretations of other people when interacting with them. When a person acts within expectation, we deem them normal. When a person transgresses expectation, we deem them deviant. In this way, dementia is revealed.MethodsSemi-structured interviews were conducted with seven community-dwelling people with dementia and 26 carers living in the East Midlands, United Kingdom. Carers were selected for inclusion by participating people with dementia. Interview data was analysed using thematic analysis informed by symbolic interactionism.ResultsFour ways in which audiences may interpret a person as having a dementia are outlined: speech, temporality, conflict and novelty. These four mechanisms of visibility represent key moments in which dementia emerges in interaction.DiscussionExamining dementia in terms of deviance and visibility positions dementia within social processes. This externalisation of dementia, relocating it within a combination of action, situation and audience, may suggest new possibilities for mediating its negative repercussions.
       
  • “I'm too Old for …” looking into a self-Sabotage rhetoric and its
           counter-narratives in an Italian setting
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Journal of Aging Studies, Volume 48Author(s): Diego Romaioli, Alberta Contarello The aim of this study was to analyze a narrative amply shared in the social and cultural spheres that makes people tend to see themselves as ‘too old for …’ (TOF) making personal life choices or following up their projects. This social construction risks preventing people from taking action to achieve their goals and develop their potential for self-fulfillment, with negative consequences on a personal level. Seventy-eight episodic interviews were conducted with adults of various ages to shed light on the recurrent topics with which the TOF narrative tends to be associated. Taking a pragmatic stance, the counter-narratives available for its deconstruction were also elicited and explored. The results emerging from a content analysis indicate that the TOF narrative is associated with different topics, partly depending on an individual's age and gender, while the counter-narratives identified by respondents hinge on several ideas and dominant beliefs that can be classified as belonging to three essential types. The implications of the investigation are discussed, also with reference to problems of social relevance such as those relating to the NEET (not in education, employment or training) issue, and to the social isolation of the elderly.
       
  • Using the heterotopic mirror to reveal tensions in public reaction to a
           photographic essay of eldercare staff and older adults
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Journal of Aging Studies, Volume 48Author(s): Janet Sayers, Margaret Brunton This paper analyses a photographic essay of older adults and workers in a nursing home environment, as a day-in-the-life documentary photographic essay Who cares published in Kai Tiaki, Nursing New Zealand in 2006. We discuss the essay, which intended to make eldercare work more visible and valued. The purpose of this paper is to ask, ‘Why were these photographs so uncomfortable to view, and why did they elicit such strong polysemous reactions from viewers'’ We argue that in order to address this question, sites of eldercare may be understood as heterotopias, or places of exclusion from social norms. While the photographs were meant to make it possible for viewers to look into the daily reality of eldercare work, we suggest the visual essay instead acted as a heterotopic hall of mirrors, revealing tensions that obscured the labour value to viewers. As observers looked into the mirror of their own lives, the utopian discourse of a residential care ‘home’ was disrupted, as the idealised version of eldercare work we have become attuned to in the media was punctured by the powerful heterotopia of the photographic essay. This article illustrates the way in which eldercare work is made invisible through complex social processes involving sight and site related to contemporary visual and spatial practices of aging and eldercare.
       
  • Places of (in)visibility. LGB aging and the (im)possibilities of coming
           out to others
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Journal of Aging Studies, Volume 48Author(s): Jaroslava Hasmanová Marhánková Middle and older age are usually ignored in the studies of the processes of coming out. This paper analyses the opportunities, and also the barriers which aging brings to the possibility of articulating one's own sexual identity in relation to others. It presents the life-course perspective as a suitable analytical tool for the study of the impact of historical context and the changing social locations within the life-biography. Analysis presented in this paper is based on 19 in-depth interviews with LGB people aged fifty and older living in the Czech Republic. The paper focuses on the way they relate to the idea of coming out and how they reflect on their previous biography with respect to the possibilities to articulate their sexuality in various phases of their life. It analyses how aging creates possibilities as well as barriers to articulate sexual identity with respect to family and closed ones and points out the need to critically reflect the narratives of coming out as a linear process of leaving “the closet”. Older age was by the participants depicted as an important context that disrupted some of the barriers preventing coming out to others. However, the vision of late old age linked with specific age-related contexts (such as life in residential care facilities) was associated with impossibility to express sexual identity.
       
  • More than “petty squabbles” – Developing a contextual understanding
           of conflict and aggression among older women in low-income assisted living
           
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Journal of Aging Studies, Volume 48Author(s): L.M. Funk, R. Herron, D. Spencer, L. Dansereau, M. Wrathall Dominant approaches to relational aggression among older adults tend to conceptualize the problem as a behavioral or interpersonal issue, and can inadvertently infantilize the phenomenon as ‘bullying.’ In this article we use a narrative approach and the conceptual lens of precarity to develop an in-depth, theoretically informed analysis of relational aggression between older women in low-income assisted living. The analysis of the narratives of tenants (and a manager) indicated that past life experiences and intersecting threats to power and identity shaped and could intensify tenants' interpretations of and reactions to others' actions and comments. Conflicts over a) unequal distributions of caring labor, b) control of social activities, and c) access to appreciation are complex and rational responses to precarious contextual conditions. Findings contribute empirically to the body of research on relational aggression among older adults, expanding this field through connecting it to critical gerontological conceptualizations of precarity. Preventing relational aggression requires increased public investment in formal social supports for older adults, challenging dominant discourses that privilege independence, and recognizing how the legacies of past disadvantage and contextual precarity (as opposed to mental illness or dementia) shape social interactions with and responses to others.
