  • Ageing, residential independence and cares: families on the move

    • Authors: Julio A. del Pino Artacho, Luis Camarero
      Abstract: The increase in longevity and the ageing of society generate changes that can be understood as processes of transition. On the one hand, we see the importance of maintaining intergenerational relations through a beanpole type of family structure, which binds together many generations with few members. On the other hand, in the care-giving sphere, the transition is marked by a balance between giving and receiving care related to age. Lastly, in terms of mobility, we find the importance of residential changes, which involve not only emancipation from the parental home or cohabitation with elderly family members, but the appearance of both increasing residential proximity and distancing . Based on data from the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE) and the Census  Hub of Eurostat, we illustrate these changes for Europe as a whole.

  • The dynamics of grandfathers: A comparative analysis of Mexican and
           Spanish society

    • Authors: George Leeson, Marta Ortega-Gaspar, Alejandro klein
      Abstract: In analysing the importance of the current roles of grandfathers in the family in Spain and Mexico, this study attempts to deepen knowledge of these roles in two different social contexts which share similar cultural roots. In respect of gender and from a cultural and generational perspective, the research aims to shed light on the figure and role of grandfathers, who have long been overshadowed by their spouses – the grandmothers. As author (2010) and Mann et al. (2013) highlight, changes at both the demographic and social level have contributed to grandfathers playing an increasingly important role in the lives of their grandchildren.It is important to underscore the originality of this research, since little attention has been paid to date to this area of research; indeed, the invisibility of the grandfather’s role almost underpins a false belief in its non-existence. It must also be stressed that this is the first comparative, transnational analysis of this type.The qualitative analysis reveals generational idiosyncratic characteristics among the grandfathers studied here and their own grandfathers, in Mexico and Spain, as well as a change in traditional gender roles, with certain country-specific nuances. In all the cases studied grandfathers interviewed express feeling a state of happiness. In addition, it can be appreciated a perception of a break with the role’s characteristic of the own grandparents.

  • About the uses, perceptions, and appraisals of ICTs among older people. A
           case study in Northwest Greater Buenos Aires, Argentina

    • Authors: Paula Pochintesta, Nuria Múseres
      Abstract: The ubiquitous character of communication technologies defines the “information The society”, which is also characterized by the acceleration of technology as a driver of social change. These changes favored an unequal digital inclusion of older people, revealing gaps in the accessibility and use of ICTs. Therefore, we wondered how older populations use, perceive, and claim ownership over new technologies. We used a qualitative research strategy combining 16 semi-structured interviews and two focus groups with people aged 60 years and older, residing in Northwest Greater Buenos Aires. The main findings show that cell phones are the most used device. Many consider that e-skills are determined by age (digital natives versus digital immigrants). During the pandemic, many people learned how to use digital platforms and devices in record time. More than half of the senior citizens in the study are advanced users, with a diversified use of ICTs, always open to learning new things. As encouraging as this is, the other half still identifies gaps and challenges that hinder their full use of ICTs, which curtails their access to key rights for a digital and social inclusion.

  • Person-centered care for older adults at nursing homes in the Iberian
           Peninsula: A Systematic Review

    • Authors: Maria Miguel Barbosa, Inês Dias , Bright I. Nwaru , Constança Paúl, Javier Yanguas, Rosa Marina Afonso
      Abstract: Portugal and Spain are neighboring countries, and both have aged populations. The aging of a population leads to a higher need for gerontological care. Person-centered care for older adults (PCCOA) offers a higher standard of quality at nursing homes. This systematic review aimed to: synthesize Portuguese and Spanish studies on PCCOA; describe the process of implementation of PCCOA; explore the impact of interventions based on PCCOA and determine the measurement tools used to evaluate PCCOA. This review was conducted in accordance with the PRISMA guidelines. Eleven electronic databases were used. All of the included studies examined PCCOA at Portuguese and/or Spanish nursing homes. Thirty-one of the included studies were conducted in Spain, and six were conducted in Portugal. Studies involved the development of models/recommendations, the promotion of resident participation in care processes and education/training. Their results indicated that PCCOA has positive outcomes for staff members and residents. Six measurement tools were used in the studies conducted in Spain. This review highlights the importance of PCCOA and the need for scientific advances, especially in Portugal. The current knowledge emerging from this systematic review will guide care planning and interventions to improve care quality and has the potential to create networking opportunities.
