  • Re-Employability of Older People in Khon Kaen Municipality (KKM)
    • Authors: Narong Kiettikunwong
      Pages: 141 - 157
      Abstract: The employability of older people is a key issue worldwide due to changing demographics. This study aimed to investigate employers’ demand for re-employing older people, specifically in two major areas: 1) the current employers’ behavior or experience as well as attitude towards older employees, and 2) what will stimulate the employment of older people. The data were gathered by face-to-face interviews employing a structured questionnaire from 301 owners of or the CEOs of business establishments in Khon Kaen Municipality (KKM), Thailand. These were selected from business establishments in KKM proportionally via a stratified sampling procedure, by business sector, legality classification and size. More than half of those businesses with older employees were pleased with them, larger manufacturing businesses retain most of the older employees, and no indication was found that these employers discharge their employees even if they reach official retirement age, nor do older employees stay with an organization for shorter periods of time than any other employees. Furthermore, we found no significant difference in level of satisfaction between the manufacturing sector and the commercial sector. Formal business operators (e.g. limited liability partnerships, limited companies, etc.) were more satisfied with their older employees rather than informal ones. Additionally, size of corporation was related to the level of satisfaction. Lastly, the most desired intervention measures were intermediary mechanisms to link potential employers closer to potential employees. Preferred choices of government incentives to boost the employment of older people, by both business sector are tax incentives and wage subsidies.

  • Working Beyond the Traditional Retirement Ages: How does Chronic Health
           Condition Influence Older Workers in Vietnam
    • Authors: Long Thanh Giang; Dung Duc Le
      Pages: 158 - 173
      Abstract: This paper, using the nationally representative data for older people in Vietnam, namely Vietnam Aging Survey (VNAS) in 2011, was aimed at exploring the current working status of older men and women who were at the ages beyond their respective normal retirement age (i.e., 60 for men and 55 for women) and then estimating how their chronic health conditions influenced on their decision to work. We found that there were significant differences in working rates between various groups of older men and women in terms of age group, living area, marital status, and educational level. The results from logistic models indicated that older persons with at least one chronic health condition had a significant lower probability of participating in the labour workforce than those without chronic health condition. In addition to health conditions, other factors (such as age, living area, and educational level) also implied that more vulnerable and poor older people had higher probabilities (i.e., more advanced ages, living in rural areas, and low educational levels) to work than did their counterparts. These groups of older people must work due to limited access to income security schemes, and thus there would be a great demand for policies supporting these groups of older people.

  • Gender Differential in Occupation and Income among the Elderly in India
    • Authors: Laishram Ladusingh; Melody Thangjam
      Pages: 174 - 189
      Abstract: The paper sheds light on changing occupation pattern and income and gender gap in the real earning of elderly 60 years and above in India. It is found that work participation of elderly in India has increase from 13.3% in 2004–05 to 16.4% in 2011–12 and for males the increase is significant from 19.4 to 23.3% while that for females is marginal from 7.1 to 10.1% during this period. Occupations classified as agricultural and animal farming, labourer, business, salaried and professional and part time worker constitutes 17.8, 55.9, 8.4, 12.8 and 5.1% respectively in 2004–05 and corresponding figures for 2011–12 are 17.6, 53.2, 2.7, 12.2 and 14.4% respectively. The mean annual earning for elderly engaged in the aforesaid occupation in order are Rs. 14,277, Rs. 19,315, Rs. 32,932, Rs. 93,880 and Rs. 44,811 in 2004–05 and the corresponding mean earning in 2011–12 after adjustment of inflation are Rs. 11,719, Rs. 27,591, Rs. 30,896, Rs. 109,673 and Rs. 21,078 respectively. The gender gap in earning is significant and has not change over time. Multigenerational living arrangement and residing rural areas are found to have deterrent effect on annual earning, while household income quintile has significant enhancing effect on annual earning but age and incidence of long term morbidities have no significant effect on annual earning. Contribution of endowment factors in gender in earning gap decreases.

           and Contextual Variables
    • Authors: M. Ángeles Molina; José L. Cañadas-Reche; Rafael Serrano-del-Rosal
      Pages: 190 - 206
      Abstract: This study analyzes the social participation of older people based on individual and contextual variables. For this purpose the data of the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE) in particular waves 1, 2 and 4 have been used. A four-level model with fixed and random effects was carried out. The model obtained shows the effect of individual variables: a greater participation in more recent waves, in ages between 60-70 years and the effect of variables such as cognitive functioning, years of education and health self-perception. But significant differences were also found in participation in contextual variables and between countries. These results are important for public policy managers, who must take into account not only individual variables, but also contextual variables, which explain the differences in the participation rate of the elderly.

  • Job Autonomy of Long-Term Residential Care Assistive Personnel: A Six
           Country Comparison
    • Authors: Frode F. Jacobsen; Suzanne Day; Katherine Laxer; Liz Lloyd; Monika Goldmann; Marta Szhebehely; Jacqueline A. Choiniere; Pauline Vaillancourt Rosenau
      Pages: 4 - 19
      Abstract: Assistive personnel are the primary caregivers in long term residential care (LTRC) and their job autonomy is a major social determinant of health. Our goal is to explore experiences of assistive personnel in six industrialized countries (Canada, Germany, Norway, Sweden, England, and the U.S.), and consider innovations in the LTRC setting that might influence their job autonomy. The methodology is based on on-site observations at nursing homes and interviews with assistive personnel and other relevant LTRC staff in selected nursing homes in all six countries. Previously published statistical material from the study on staff characteristics like pay, formal education, unionization, employment-related benefits and extent of part-time work is employed as relevant context for discussing job autonomy. Our results show that assistive personnel are highly supportive of job autonomy though they interpret autonomy differently and report widely varying levels of job autonomy. Those LTRC organizations that have a reputation for encouraging autonomy of assistive personal, report recruiting is far easier even where there is a shortage. In some countries we were told that “resident-centered” (“person-centered”) care and a leveling of the division of labor, understood as more equal and horizontal division of labor, was on the rise and this could affect autonomy. Job autonomy is welcomed by assistive personnel. The wide variation in job autonomy across nursing homes and across countries is surprising. Within nursing homes variation may reflect imperfect or incomplete implementation of autonomy policies, or differential application of policies. The resident-centered philosophy and the leveling of the division of labor could make for greater autonomy for assistive personnel. These workplace innovations are not universal in all countries and they could be more difficult to apply where resources and commitment are lacking. The increasingly frail population of LTRC facilities and the general trend toward growth of specialized medical treatment within LTRC in some of the countries may support an argument for some limitations to job autonomy in assistive personnel. Autonomy is favored by assistive personnel though not all have it. The workplace innovations of resident-centered care and a leveling of the division of labor in LTRC, could make for a greater degree of autonomy for assistive personnel in the future, while increased demand for highly skilled care could work in the other direction.

  • Same, Same but Different: Norwegian Nursing Homes Betwixt Equality and
           Autonomy
    • Authors: Gudmund Ågotnes
      Pages: 20 - 33
      Abstract: Nursing homes in Norway – as the health care sector in general – are generally presented and perceived as promoting the ideal of equality and universality. Nursing homes are meant to be similar or even “equal”; offering not only universal access but also similar care and support for its residents. Such is not necessarily the reality for Norwegian nursing homes. Nursing homes differ, not only in formal characteristics such as size, ownership and location, but also in degree of autonomy and independence. In general, nursing homes in Norway can be described as being in a perpetual tension between ideals of equality and universality on one side and autonomy and independence on the other. Consequently, nursing homes exhibit varying degrees of autonomy and self-governance. Such relative autonomy, we will argue in this paper, is grounded in the regulatory framework for Norwegian nursing homes. Exemplified with a municipality and a specific nursing home, we will demonstrate that a large bulk of the decision-making concerning the daily operations of nursing homes is placed locally. We see this premise as facilitating diversity and autonomy, producing variation between nursing homes. Nursing homes can, given this context, adapt to a flexible framework, securing local adjustments suitable for the local needs of administrators, staff and residents. The non-specific modes of governance can, in other words, contribute to flexibility and autonomy, although not necessarily in line with an overall ideal of universality.

  • “‘Call Security’: Locks, Risk, Privacy and Autonomy in Long-term
           Residential Care”
    • Authors: Frances Tufford; Ruth Lowndes; James Struthers; Sally Chivers
      Pages: 34 - 52
      Abstract: Locked doors and secure units are often used as a solution in long-term residential care (LTRC) for residents with moderate to severe dementia who are at risk for wandering and potentially harming themselves or others. This practice creates important quality of life implications for residents as well as for employees. In this paper we explore broader assumptions, connotations and possibilities of LTRC built environments by comparing and contrasting the use of and philosophies regarding the locking of doors and entire units in facilities that maintain this practice to those that have open doors, open units and other accessible physical spaces. This sub-study is part of a larger international, interdisciplinary study that uses rapid site-switching ethnography within a feminist political economy framework to investigate promising practices in LTRC. Field observations and interviews with management, health providers, support staff, informal care providers, union representatives, residents and family members were conducted in 27 sites, 10 of which we elected to include for the purpose of this paper, located in Nova Scotia, Ontario, Manitoba, and British Columbia (BC), Canada, as well as Norway, Germany and the United Kingdom (UK). Locked doors and units, and inaccessible physical spaces affect the balance between “home” and “institution” in LTRC facilities in numerous ways including privacy, mobility and autonomy of residents, the ability to remain socially connected within the home, possibilities of integration with the larger community and overall quality of life and care.

  • Cleaning and Caring: Contributions in Long-term Residential Care
    • Authors: Beatrice Müller; Pat Armstrong; Ruth Lowndes
      Pages: 53 - 73
      Abstract: Cleaning and cleaners make three main contributions to long-term residential care. While cleaning in hospitals has received considerable research attention, much less attention has been paid to connecting cleaning and cleaners with the specific nature of long-term care and resident needs. In this article we explore three critical contributions cleaning and cleaners make to the quality of care in nursing homes. This work is central to infection control. It is also important in maintaining the appearance of the home; in making it home-like, welcoming, and safe. Much less visible is the significant part cleaners play in supporting relational care. Based on ethnographic studies in six countries, we argue that the extent to which cleaners and cleaning promote quality care and worker health is related to the division of labour, team work, training, equipment, and some autonomy.

  • Balancing the Tension in Long-Term Residential Care
    • Authors: Pat Armstrong
      Pages: 74 - 90
      Abstract: Although high income countries increasingly emphasize care at home, long-term residential care is and will remain the place where some of our most vulnerable live and work. Based on over 500 interviews with the entire range of actors in long-term residential care, intensive observations by interdisciplinary teams of at least 12 in 27 different sites in six countries and on background documents that take context into account, this paper explores tensions in long-term residential care. It argues that recognizing and balancing these tensions is critical to care and constitute promising practices. However, multiple pressures are shifting the balances in these tensions, with for-profit, chain ownership and the increasing pressure to emphasize clinical care among the most powerful forces.

  • We’re told, ‘Suck it up’: Long-Term Care Workers’ Psychological
           Health and Safety
    • Authors: Susan Braedley; Prince Owusu; Anna Przednowek; Pat Armstrong
      Pages: 91 - 109
      Abstract: This pilot study analyzes interview research with long-term residential care nursing staff in four Canadian provinces, revealing relationships between workers’ psychological health and well-being and working conditions that include work overload, low worker control, disrespect and discrimination. Further, individual workers are often required to cope with these working conditions on their own. The findings suggest that these psychological health and safety hazards can be addressed by both individual workplaces and government regulation, but are currently ignored or mis-recognized by many employers and even by workers themselves. These findings indicate opportunities for improving psychological health and safety in long-term residential care work.

  • Skills of Workers in Long-Term Residential Care: Exploring Complexities,
           Challenges, and Opportunities
    • Authors: Rachel Barken; Pat Armstrong
      Pages: 110 - 122
      Abstract: Changing resident and staff populations, along with political economic reforms, call for new insights into the kinds of skills needed to work in long-term residential care (LTRC). This paper explores the skills of three occupational groups in LTRC: direct care workers, nurses, and doctors. We highlight complexities and ambiguities that exist regarding the training, roles and responsibilities, and integration of these occupational groups, and consider how race and gender relations shape assumptions regarding the skills of different workers. This paper synthesizes presentations and discussions from a workshop titled ‘Skills for Long-term Residential Care,’ held in Toronto, Canada in May 2015. Presentations drew on ethnographic research in LTRC facilities across Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Norway, Sweden, and Germany, as well as the practical experience and knowledge of representatives from Canadian unions and professional organizations. We highlight conditions needed to ensure workers have the appropriate skills to care for an aging population, and raise questions to be addressed to develop a sustainable, highly skilled LTRC workforce.

  • Testing U.S. State-Based Training Models to Meet Health Workforce Needs in
           Long-Term Care
    • Authors: Jennifer Craft Morgan; Nadine Edris; Clare C. Luz; Daniel P. Ochylski; Anita Stineman; Leanne Winchester; Susan A. Chapman
      Pages: 123 - 140
      Abstract: The US health care system and its workforce is rapidly changing to meet the triple aim of reducing costs, increasing quality of care and improving the patient experience. There is a need to align training models with system needs and patient preferences in ways that allow the most cost effective members of the care team to shoulder increasing shares of this care (Ricketts and Fraher, Health Affairs, 32(11), 1874–1880, 2013). One entry-level and in-demand class of health care workers are personal and home care aides (PHCAs). The US Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 26% increase in PHCAs to over 2.2 million workers by 2024 (OOH 2014). System needs for rebalancing care from institutional settings into the community and patient preferences for in-home care have aligned to drive the need for PHCAs. The increasing prevalence of chronic disease, medical complexity and dementia mean that these workers will be required to handle increasingly challenging clients and function as a key member of increasingly integrated health care teams. Therefore, the development of new models of education and training are necessary. Standards for PHCA training are quite low (Marquand and Chapman 2014) and states leave most training to employers with little to no oversight (Kelly et al. Journal of Applied Gerontology, 32(7): 804–832, 2013). The purpose of this study is to present case studies of six state-based training models for PHCAs funded by the Affordable Care Act. We discuss state approaches to recruitment of trainees, curriculum design and delivery methods, and key lessons learned to inform model development internationally.

  • Thinking about Later Life: Insights from the Capability Approach
    • Authors: Manik Gopinath
      Abstract: 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. As well as identifying these key features of the capability approach, I discuss and demonstrate their relevance to thinking about old age and aging. I maintain that in the context of complex and emerging identities in later life that shape and are shaped by shifting people-place and people-people relationships, Sen’s capability approach offers significant possibilities for gerontological research.

  • Impacts of Tsunami Disaster in Thai Elderly Survivors
    • Authors: Rangsiman Soonthornchaiya; Arunya Tuicomepee; John L. Romano
      Abstract: The psychological impact 4 years after 2004 tsunami affected the individual health status and living situation of survivors. Although Thailand rapidly received assistance and success in the relief response, mental trauma is still embedded within individuals. The purpose of this qualitative study was to describe individual experiences regarding to Tsunami impact in Thai elderly survivors after 4 years. Participants were 22 older adults, aged between 60 and 81 years, who had direct experience with various loss from the 2004 tsunami. Semi-structure in-depth interviews, audio-tape recordings, and field notes were used to collect data at participants’ homes. Thematic analysis was use to discover regularities and patterns among descriptions. Three major themes were found: 1) feelings of suffering and missing loved ones were still deep in the minds of participants, 2) coping with stress included reframing thoughts as “plong,” living with life understanding, doing activities for healing, support from family members, and building self-esteem, and 3) engaging in self-care behaviors to heal the mind and body included undergoing continuous care as necessary, seeking care both physical and mental health, and holding mind with Buddhist principle. The findings delineated Tsunami as a stressful life event that has had prolonged affected on individual’s lives. Older adult survivors still suffer from their lost and concern about their children’s lives. Although they found coping to live wisely, these survivors needed professionals helped for continuous care. Findings suggested that health care professionals would continue follow-up care with older adult survivor concern, managed self-care, and coping strategies with religious practice.

  • Social Participation of British Patients Aged Sixty Five Years and Over
           Living in Kyrenia: a Descriptive Study Based on a Number of Activities
    • Authors: Ozen Asut; Songul Vaizoglu; Nur Alshanableh; Inaam Raed; Osman Cihan Tuna; Ozgur Turk; Sanda Cali
      Abstract: The objective of this study was to assess the social participation features of mostly British patients aged ≥65 years admitted to a university hospital in Northern Cyprus. The data of this descriptive study were collected by a questionnaire, analysed by SPSS 18.0 statistical program and subjected to descriptive statistical analysis. Complete dependency in performing daily activities was expressed by 5% or less of the patients. The age group >70 years needed more assistance and the comparison of the age groups revealed a significant difference in favor of the ≤70 age group, with activities declining seriously >70. The higher the educational status, the more participants tend to perform social activities. The results show that most of the social activities decline seriously by age. University education was influential positively on level of social activities and independency. Measures to facilitate social participation of aging people are needed in Northern Cyprus.

  • Limitations in Activities of Daily Living among Dementia-Free Older Adults
           in Panama
    • Authors: Alcibiades E. Villarreal; for the Panama Aging Research Initiative; Shantal Grajales; Lineth López; Diana C. Oviedo; María B. Carreira; Lee Anne Gómez; Astevia Montalván; Vivian Vásquez; Gabrielle B. Britton
      Abstract: The Latin America and Caribbean region is experiencing one of the fastest rates of population aging, but research on age-related disability is limited, particularly in Central America. The aim of this study was to examine limitations in the performance of basic activities of daily living (BADL) and instrumental activities of daily living (IADL) and their association with sociodemographic and health-related factors in a sample of adults aged 65 and older in Panama. Cross-sectional data are reported for 370 community-dwelling elderly outpatients (144 males, 226 females) without dementia. Self-reported BADL and IADL limitations were the outcomes. Logistic regression models were used to examine the association between sociodemographic and health characteristics and at least one limitation or severe (four or more) limitations. Approximately half (53.5%) and one-third (66.8%) of participants reported at least one BADL and IADL limitation, respectively. Increased age (≥ 80 years), being male, less education, and a history of stroke were independently and significantly associated with BADL limitations. The same variables, in addition to reporting four or more chronic illnesses, were independently and significantly associated with IADL limitations. The results are consistent with previous research in low and middle-income countries regarding the factors associated with BADL and IADL disability in older adults. Assessing the extent of disability among Panama’s elderly population is vital for identifying those at risk of transitioning to worse states of health over the course of aging and designing specific interventions to meet the needs of older adults.

  • For Grandparents’ Sake: the Relationship between Grandparenting
           Involvement and Psychological Well-Being
    • Authors: Eon-Ha Park
      Abstract: 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 = −0.134) when this variable increased, but no relationship was found with perceived meaning or depressive mood. In addition, the hypotheses that burden of caring for grandchildren would mediate the impact of role type and involvement level on psychological wellbeing, and that respect from adult children would moderate this mediation, were supported. Four policy and practice implications are identified. First, policy makers should provide resources for seniors so that those who might benefit from actively nurturing their grandchildren can do so more readily. Second, given that significant moderated mediation emerged in terms of care burden and grandparent roles and involvement, practitioners should be aware of the interactions among grandparents, children, and grandchildren when providing counselling and other resources. Third, the study suggests the importance of applying dynamic practice models, particularly in a context like South Korea, where most families encompass more than two generations. Finally, the results have implications regarding the impact of grandparent attitudes and behaviour patterns within changing social dynamics, and practitioners should be prepared to assist clients and their families to address their evolving roles and the impacts they have on the family unit. Limitations and implications for future research are also discussed.

  • Religiosity as a Protective Factor of Psychological Well-being among Older
           Black, White and Asian Christians in the United States
    • Authors: Elsa S. Lee; Yalu Zhang
      Abstract: Research suggests that older adults in stressful situations are more likely to use spiritual coping resources than other age groups in order to cultivate meaning in their lives in general as well as in difficult life situations. Based on the stress and coping framework, this study examines the role of religiosity in terms of spiritual connectedness as well as church attendance in predicting depressive symptoms among U.S. older Asian, Black, and White Christians in the context of functional limitations. Our findings suggest that older American Christians are not a homogenous group. Specifically, older Asians, when compared with Whites, reported more frequent church attendance but lower levels of spiritual connectedness, and higher levels of functional limitations and depressive symptoms. In the additive model, spiritual connectedness did not independently explain the variance in depressive symptoms for any racial group. In the interaction model, church attendance was found to be a robust factor in accounting for lower levels of depressive symptoms only for Asians, and spiritual connectedness moderated the negative impact of functional limitations on depressive symptoms only for the Black Christian sample. This finding provides support to the argument that although Blacks struggle with health difficulties, they are more likely than Whites to seek solace from religion through a personal sense of spiritual connectedness with a supernatural, omnipotent God. Among the older Asian Christians, this and other literature suggest a rather stable trend of improved depressive symptoms with higher levels of religious involvement among this population.

  • Exploring Potential Linkages between Social Support, Retirement and
           Subjective Wellbeing among Older Indians: Does it a Challenge to Policy
           Makers'
    • Authors: Himanshu Chaurasia; Brajesh; Sunil Sarode
      Abstract: Subjective wellbeing is an important component of wellbeing that benefits people by influencing their subjective feelings. Using the Building Knowledge Base on Population Ageing in India (BKPAI 2011) survey data, the study attempts to investigate the linkages between social support and subjective wellbeing (SWB) among older adults of age 60 and above in India. The path analysis revealed that the social support have an indirectly effect on SWB through mediating role of family income, education, religion and financial status. The social support explained 23% of the variation in SWB. The structural equation model were performed to test the relationship between the latent variables divided into exogenous and endogenous, with the former affecting the latter. Study also tested the reliability of the questionnaire scores and its criterion and structural validity of SWB. The results confirm the validity is suitable for the multidimensional assessment of SWB. Using instrumental variables approach there is moderate evidence of positive correlation and endogenous regressors social support yield unbiased and consistent and effect of being involuntary retired has a negative on SWB, but the effect is not significantly different from zero. However, this study doesn’t found significant positive effect between retirement and SWB. In view of the findings, the study calls for devising policy implications that contribute to support and wellbeing research for future.
