  • Association between Frailty and Public Health Care Services Utilization
           among Older Adults: A Cross-Sectional Study
    • Abstract: Abstract Frailty leads to exceedingly high budgets for the public health system with maintenance and rehabilitation of health services. To evaluate the association between frailty and Health Care Services utilization among older people enrolled at Primary Health Care (PHC). cross-sectional study. Territory of units of PHC, in older people’s home. The sample was composed of older people enrolled in 14 PHC teams, divided into 12 Primary care units. Health care services utilization was assessed by self-report medical consultations at the primary and secondary levels, participation in groups, home visits and hospitalization. Frailty was identified by the Frailty Phenotype. The association between frailty and health care services utilization was verified by crude and adjusted logistic regression models, at significance level of 0.05. The total sample was 496 older people with a mean age of 71 years (± 6.93), 62.2% females. In the univariate analyses, frailty was associated with all investigated health care services (p < 0.05). In the crude models, frail older people had higher odds of hospitalization compared to non-frail counterparts (OR = 2.91, 95% CI 1.43–5.88). Considering the adjusted models, clinical and sociodemographic variables showed an association with health care services utilization but not with frailty. Frailty was not directly associated with health care service utilization. However, it has multidimensional level and can be influenced by other factors.

  • Appraising sufficiency of financial support for older adults in Anambra
           State, Nigeria
    • Abstract: Abstract Older adults are highly associated with frailty and disengagement from income-generating activities, hence the high tendency for financial dependence. We sought to know from 20 older adults aged 75 years and above, residing in Anambra state, if they consider the financial support provided to them especially by their support systems as sufficient. The cumulative inequality theory helped in providing a framework, while data were analyzed thematically. Findings show inadequate, suboptimal and uncoordinated financial support for older adults from family members, and other sources (NGOs, churches, and philanthropists). The roles social workers could play in advocating, facilitating and coordinating financial resources for older adults were highlighted.

  • Successful Aging of Men with Various Chronic Health Conditions Residing in
           Nursing Homes
    • Abstract: Abstract This study investigated the successful aging among men with various chronic health conditions. A cohort of 303 male participants (50 men with high blood pressure, 32 with cardiac disease, 30 with diabetes mellitus, 23 with the prostate gland, and 39 with other diseases) were included in the study. Successful aging scale (SAS), independence in activities of daily living scale (ADLs), instrumental activities of daily living scale (IADLs), satisfaction with life scale (SLs) were performed. SLs was positively associated with SAS (R = .287;r2 = .083;p⩽.001), healthy lifestyle habits (HLH) (R = .046;r2 = .014;p⩽.001), struggle against difficulties (SAD) (R = .307;r2 = .094;p⩽.001), and IADLs (R = .156;r2 = .024;p⩽.001). Age was negatively associated with IADL (R = .247;r2 = .061;p⩽.001). Age was unassociated with SAS or the components (HLH;SAD). Monthly income was positively associated with SLs (R = .409;r2 = .167;p⩽.001). Education was positively associated with SAD (R = .230;r2 = .053;p⩽.001), HLH (R = .237;r2 = .056;p⩽.001), SLs (R = .190;r2 = .036;p⩽.001), and SAS (R = .252;r2 = .064;p⩽.001). The SAS with its components was valid and reliable [χ2:92,485; χ2/df:2.371; SRMR:.099; RMSEA:.067; NNFI:.926; IFI:.937; CFI:936; GFI:.916; AGFI:.916]. SLs and education had a positive effect on SAS, and its components (HLH, SAD). The SAS was proved with validity and reliability.

  • Ultra-low Fertility and Policy Response in South Korea: Lessons from the
           Case of Japan
    • Abstract: Abstract South Korea’s fertility rate declined rapidly beginning in the late 1970s. By 2005, it had fallen to an all-time low of 1.08 per woman. This shift has contributed to a significant and continuing increase in the ratio of elderly to working-age population. In 2006 and 2010, the Korean government instituted policy plans intended to support child-rearing in the context of a modern industrialized society. However, increases in fertility rates during the years that followed were slight and inconsistent. In 2016, the government presented its Third Initiative for Low Fertility and Aging Society, but this program has been criticized, especially for focusing, like the earlier plans, too narrowly on financial subsidies rather than addressing culture and infrastructure as well. The present study examines these policy responses and compares them to the case of Japan, where a substantial reversal in the recent low fertility trend appears to have followed targeted, broad-based policies from both the central and regional governments, as well as voluntary programs by employers. The study recommends that Korea, like Japan, should not only engage multiple stakeholders but should broaden the scope of policy responses to account for the research-supported interrelationship among factors associated with education, culture, and economics.

           Logistic Analysis
    • Abstract: Abstract Despite an increase in average life expectancy among the population due to rapid economic development, there is an epidemic increase in the cases of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) including diabetes, hypertension and stroke, which has caused over 1000 deaths over the years. This study aims to add research contribution by investigating the impact of factors of HPB on elderly health diseases. The target population is Malaysian elderly aged 60 years and above. As an ethnic diversity is an important feature of Malaysia, this study includes all the major ethnicity (such as Malay, Chinese and Indian). The sampling frame chosen includes Perak, Penang, Malacca and Kuala Lumpur, as they have been recorded as some of the states with older populations. This study employed the Logistic Regression Model for analysing the data. 400 questionnaires have been administered. The result indicated that elderly health diseases is significantly affected by the factors of HPB. Hence, Health promotion in health care services for elderly needs active support. Findings suggest that more elderly Health Promotion programs and healthcare policies can be the tools to the empowerment of elderly health condition.

  • Third Party Disability in Spouses of Elderly Persons with Different
           Degrees of Hearing Loss
    • Abstract: Abstract This study is aimed to compare the measures of third party disability in spouses of elderly persons with different degrees of hearing loss using the Significant Other Scale for Hearing Disability (SOS-HEAR) and to obtain feedback from the participants about the items on the scale to identify culture-specific items with special reference to Indian context. Participants were fifty-seven spouses whose elderly partners had moderate, moderately severe or severe hearing loss. All spouses passed a pure tone screening at 40 dBHL across 0.5 to 4 kHz in each ear, with no significant cognitive deficits found on the Abbreviated Mental Test Score (AMT). Spouses self-administered or answered an interview for administration of the 27-item SOS-HEAR scale, consisting of six sub-scales. Scores of third party disability for the three hearing loss groups were compared for each sub-scale using the Kruskal-Wallis test, with Mann-Whitney U for post-hoc analysis. Suggestions were obtained from participants about the items on the scale. Statistically significant differences in the scores of third party disability were obtained across all sub-scales of SOS-HEAR between spouses of elderly persons with moderate and severe hearing loss. Significant differences were also found on sub-scales of communication changes and emotional reactions to adaptations between scores of spouses of elderly persons with moderate and moderately severe hearing loss. Feedback obtained from participants about specific items on the scale are reported. The extent of third party disability in spouses of elderly persons with hearing loss is influenced by the degree of hearing loss in the person. Communication burden increases and more changes in communication are warranted with an increase in hearing loss from moderate to severe degree. Relationship changes, going out and socializing, concern for partner, and emotional reactions to the adaptations necessary for dealing with a partner with hearing loss are influenced by the degree of hearing loss in the partner.

  • The Decline of American Orphanages and the Rise of Nursing Homes: An
           Untold Story of Women and Death
    • Abstract: Abstract In the last 100 years, American orphanages have dramatically declined at the same time as nursing homes have seen exponential growth. This paper reviews the common understanding and assumptions about these two distinct histories and asks: why have these national responses been so different when the populations at the center of them are so similar' Among several reasons offered for these differences two unique factors that promote the institutionalization of the elderly are commonly omitted. These are: the gendered nature of institutionalized elderly populations and the stigma and social burden of death and dying. These two influences, separately and together, are either overlooked or underestimated for their impact on historical and policy outcomes. It is crucial for the future of elder care and research that these factors are recognized so that policies have a precise – and more helpful - focus on the actual challenges faced by these populations.

  • The Perception of Independent Living among Thai Older Adults
    • Abstract: Abstract In Thailand, 11% of the population are 65 years or older, and this figure is expected to increase by more than a quarter by 2040. One of the most pressing challenges faced by Thai older adults is living independently despite their physical frailties. As a result, a shift in emphasis, from elderly care to independent living, has been advocated. This study is a descriptive study designed using qualitative methods and aimed at exploring the perception of independent living on the part of Thai older adults, including the meaning, characteristics, and contributing factors of independent living. Eleven Thai older adults aged 60 years or older with no physical disability and living in both urban and suburban community in the central part of Thailand were studied using in-depth interviews. Data were analyzed using content analysis. The findings revealed that Thai older adults explained independent living as performing activities of daily living without depending on others, making decisions without control from others, and feeling comfortable doing their personal activities. The characteristics of living independently were found to be the following: 1) being employed, 2) having sufficient money for personal expenses, 3) being capable of participating in religious activities, and 4) having time for relaxation. Moreover, the factors that were seen to contribute to independent living were the personal factors of the individual, the environment, and the social support provided by his or her family and community. Understanding the meaning, characteristics, and factors that contribute to independent living in Thai older adults is essential in order to increase the self-fulfillment of Thai older adults living in the community, and to promote their self-esteem, control, and dignity.

  • Neuroticism and Quality of Life: Testing for Mediated Effects of Anxiety
           in Older Adults without Cognitive Impairment
    • Abstract: Abstract Plasticity has been related to some compensatory behavioral changes in aging that might occur, in many fields, personality included. Literature also supports its linked with quality of life in late life. However, the question of whether personality might affect symptomatology in the elderly, and its inherent relation to quality of life, has been the topic of debate. The aim of this study is to examine the mediating role of variables such as anxiety on personality and the quality of life in the elderly without cognitive impairment. A sample of 106 elderly participants (cognitive healthy and aged from 60 to 91 years old) was selected. Variables such as personality, anxiety and quality of life were measured through the Personality Factorial Battery (PFB), the Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI), the World Health Organization (WHOQOL)-BREF and the WHOQOL-OLD questionnaire. The anxiety symptomology was identified as mediating role of the relation between personality and quality of life in elderly persons, intensifying this relationship. The others personality’s factors did not present statistical significance. Anxiety mediates the effect of neuroticism personality on quality of life in the elderly without cognitive impairment. This might suggest that, even if studies claim invariance of neuroticism in late life, its effect on quality of life might be susceptible to variables such anxiety.

  • Crafting “Youthful” Desire, “Doing” Masculinity: Narratives of
           Middle-Aged to Older Men in Grindr Grid and Offline Spaces in Mumbai,
    • Abstract: Abstract This study utilizes queer gerontology as a framework to raise questions and rethink theoretical tools by weaving personal biographies and intimate histories of queer men in Mumbai, India. In particular, drawing on narratives and self-presentation aesthetics of 30 middle-aged to older men in the online dating app, Grindr, as well as face-to-face interviews, this study harnesses the somatic turn in gerontology to show how the (neoliberal) triad of self-care, stylistic consumption and an invocation of “metrosexual” masculinity become critical signifiers of the never-aging cultural enterprise of the Third Age (Laslett 1989). In the process it shows how the putative marginality of the homosexual aged body both destabilizes and strengthens the rationality of normative heterosexuality through its enduring emphasis on (sexual) functionality and moral duty. The men’s narratives allow us to question the limits of “western” cultural anxieties of “coming out” in a context where homosociality offers reticent acceptance without threatening the heteronormative matrix. All in all, this study with its focus on men’s bodies as erotic capital allows us to reimagine aging where desire remains socially and culturally meaningful for most men across their lives, thereby de-centering the heteronormative and asexual gaze of mainstream gerontology in India.

  • Examining Withdrawal in Employee Provident Fund and its Impact on Savings
    • Abstract: Abstract While the establishment of provident fund is mainly to ensure retirees to be financially secured in old age, pre-retirement withdrawals are commonly permitted for various purposes. These withdrawals had been identified as one of the main causes for low accumulated savings. Using a longitudinal administrative dataset, the paper explored the withdrawal patterns among members of the Malaysian Employees Provident Fund and how much savings would be increased should there be no withdrawal allowed. Based on transaction records from 2002 until 2012, it was found that withdrawal varies by type of withdrawal and age. Preventing withdrawal would increase RM18, 384.10 in median savings. Data indicate that the amount of increment increases with age, however, more than 80% of the members would have an increase in savings of not more than RM50, 000. While the amount of increment in savings is found to be low, other forms of withdrawal should not be permitted if the EPF savings is to ensure financial security in retirement.

  • Lifestyle Behaviours and Mental Health Outcomes of Elderly: Modification
           of Socio-Economic and Physical Health Effects
    • Abstract: Abstract Lifestyle behaviours and its mediating relationships between socio-economic characteristics and physical health effects have been widely discussed in epidemiological study. Considering a proper study framework, the relationship between lifestyle and mental health has not been rigorously established. Utilizing population based elderly data from Building a Knowledge Base on Population Ageing in India (BKPAI), present study has made an attempt to understand the direct and indirect effects of lifestyle behaviours on the mental health outcomes of elderly through statistical path. Six lifestyle behaviours were examined: physical activity, smoking, alcohol consumption, diet, family relation and social activity. In order to measure mental health, two common symptoms of general psychological stress including anxiety and depression were identified by examining factor structure of twelve item General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-12) in Indian elderly. The result shows that anxiety and depression were more common among the elderly with unhealthy lifestyle such as physical inactivity, regular smoking, social isolation and poor family relation. Multivariate analysis also shows, poor physical health, characterised by functional limitation, presence of NCDs, and disability has a stronger influence on anxiety and depression. Moderation analysis suggests that both physical activity and social activity have a moderation effect on anxiety and depression over socio-economic risk factors. This study evidently concludes that unhealthy lifestyle behaviours of older adults such as regular smoking, low level of physical activity are directly vis-à-vis indirectly associated with bad mental health. Therefore, modification of these unhealthy lifestyle behaviours will effectively reduce the burden of psychological distress among older adults in India.

  • Working Beyond Retirement: Are there Gender Differences in Bridge
    • Abstract: Abstract This paper examined gender differences associated with bridge employment using a sample of American workers aged 50 and older. Gender role theory and gendered life course retirement models informed this research. Gender differences and similarities were found in reasons why workers retired from their main job. Logistic regressions indicated that men and women who had health care benefits available at work and men with lower family incomes were more likely to be pursuing bridge employment. Work interfering with family was related to a decreased likelihood of bridge employment for men and women, while work-family synergy was positively related to bridge employment for men. Health variables (self-rated health and mental health) were unrelated to bridge employment. Finally, gender and marital status interacted to predict engagement in bridge employment. Policy implications are discussed including the notion that working beyond retirement represents a new and complex career stage.

  • Social Support Effect on Health of Older People in Vietnam: Evidence from
           a National Aging Survey
    • Abstract: Abstract This study examined the relationship between social support and activities of daily living (ADL) limitations among older men and women in Vietnam. We applied bivariate analysis to explore the dependent variable and all social support variables, and then logistic regression models for older men and women to examine the relationship between social support and their ADL limitations. Data were from the nationally representative Vietnam Aging Survey (VNAS) in 2011. We found that social support was associated with ADL limitations, but different impacts were observed between older men and women. In particular, living arrangements, emotional support, financial support, and social connection presented consistent association with ADL limitations for both older men and women. From such findings, we argued that, in making policies for older people, the government should pay more attention to supporting living-alone people, encouraging familial and community connections, and reforming health and long-term care systems.

  • Trends, Determinants and the Implications of Population Aging in Iran
    • Abstract: Abstract Fertility and mortality decline are major drivers of Iran’s population aging. A rapid and sharp fall in fertility rates over the past three decades as well as a substantial rise in life expectancy are causing rapid aging of Iran’s population. The present paper uses the 2015 United Nations Population Division data to discuss the trends, determinants and the implications of population aging in Iran. According to the medium fertility variant, people age 60 and older will represent 31% (almost 29 million people) of Iran’s population by 2050. The population age 65 and older is projected to be 22% (more than 20 million) and that of aged 80 and older 3.8% (around 3.5 million) in 2050, that are almost four-times higher than the corresponding figures in 2015. Data on the speed of population aging show that Iran is the second fastest aging country in the world in terms of the percentage point increase in the population age 60 and over between 2015 and 2050; Iran is second only to South Korea, by less than .01%. The rapid population aging of Iran has significant implications for all societal institutions and decision makers that have to be addressed by the Iranian society. Gender-related issues and socio-economic security in old age are two key issues resulting from such a fast population aging. As with many rapidly aging populations, Iran needs a strategy for social and economic supports for an aging population that will not promote views of aging people as a burden.

  • Return Migration in Later Life in Mainland China: Motivations, Patterns,
           and Influences
    • Abstract: Abstract This study focuses on patterns and influences of return migration behavior in mainland China, (n = 468 individuals ages 50 and above) from a life-course perspective, using the 2011 China Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study (CHARLS). Utilizing spatial analysis, we found return migration geographic patterns mainly from the frontier and urban centers to central provinces, involving migrant workers returning to their rural homes. We used logistic linear modeling to examine the correlations between personal attributes (e.g., age, gender, marital status), environmental aspects (e.g., community characteristics, housing conditions, geographic attributes), and return migration. Historical and socioeconomic factors affected return migration, including availability parents to provide care, declining personal health, improved housing infrastructures, and better access to community services. Our findings also show the productive social role of caregiving as a reason for migration, calling for flexible policies in China’s social welfare system, comprehensive senior living facilities, and adequate support systems in rural communities.

  • Adaptation and Validation of the French Psychological Need Frustration
           Scale for Older Adults
    • Abstract: Abstract This study aimed to demonstrate a significant distinction between basic psychological need frustration (BPNF) and satisfaction (BPNS) in older people. To that end, two studies were conducted. Study 1a tested the score validity and reliability of the French psychological need frustration scale for older adults (PNFS-OA) to measure BPNF for autonomy, competence and relatedness. This study involved 476 older French adults (234 women and 242 men; Mage = 75.99 years, SD = 11.7, age range = 60–98 years) and the results support the factorial validity and reliability of the PNFS-OA scores. Study 1b then examined the relationships between BPNF and a range of selected outcomes (i.e., personal growth, purpose in life, vitality, self-esteem, positive and negative affective states and depressive symptoms) controlling for BPNS. This second study involved 154 older French adults living at home (86 women and 68 men; Mage = 73.36, SD = 7.07, age range: 65–95 years). Results showed that BPNF not only made a significant contribution to the prediction of depressive symptoms (indicator of ill-being) over and above BPNS but also contributed significantly to the prediction of some indicators of well-being over and above BPNS (i.e., purpose in life and self-esteem). These results question the role of the participants’ socio-contextual environment, which would not only be a supportive but also a controlling environment for the BPN. As a whole, BPNS and BPNF provide an interesting bridge connecting both positive and pathological aspects of ageing.

  • Demography, Socioeconomic Status and Health Services Utilisation among
           Older Ghanaians: Implications for Health Policy
    • Abstract: Abstract Although socioeconomic status (SES) has long been linked with health services utilisation, the associations of demographic factors and SES, and multiple healthcare options in later life remain unclear. This paper utilised a large and representative dataset from a 2016/17 Ageing, Health, Psychological Wellbeing and Health-seeking Behaviour Study (AHPWHB) to examine the effects of multilevel SES and demographic inequalities in health-seeking behaviour among a community sample of Ghanaians aged 50 years or older. Multiple logistic models estimated gendered-stratified SES effects on utilisation of various healthcare options, including formal healthcare, traditional medicine and self-care. Interestingly, urban living decreased the odds of formal healthcare use but increased self-care across genders. Married women were less likely to utilise formal and traditional healthcare but married men predominantly accessed formal healthcare. Age, education and health insurance independently predicted utilisation of differing healthcare types. Information on SES inequalities including geographical variations, marital status and gendered perspective appears to be useful in planning health and delivery strategies for older persons.
