  • Addressing ageism in Polish ageing policy – critical remarks

    • Authors: Barbara Mikołajczyk
      Abstract: Poland is one of the European Union Member States ageing the fastest. This dynamic demographic situation calls for an effective ageing policy and law that help to reduce or prevent ageism, which pushes older individuals outside of mainstream society. This paper investigates how ageism is currently being addressed in Polish law and ageing policy and indicates gaps and deficiencies in this area. The research focuses on selected samples of the most recent instruments focused on older persons, including those related to local governments, as they are closest to older residents. The author argues that introducing older persons' issues into the legal agenda and various social strategies is insufficient to bring about the authentic inclusion of older persons into mainstream society without applying a human rights-based approach to ageing and understanding various aspects of ageism. In the author's opinion, the effective ageing policy cannot be considered in isolation from the overall condition of democratic institutions and international human rights law.

  • Issues Concerning Ageing Population in Kampot and Takeo Provinces,
           Cambodia, and the Implications of the Cambodia National Ageing Policy

    • Authors: Soksamphoas Im
      Pages: 1 - 28
      Abstract: This article assesses the issues concerning the ageing population in Takeo province and Kampot province, Cambodia, and the implications of the Cambodia National Ageing Policy (NAP) 2017-2030 in addressing those issues. By interviewing fifty randomly selected participants aged 60 and older, the findings revealed that the NAP 2017-2030 has not positively impacted the elderly population in Cambodia as it promised. The current generation of elderly Cambodians are Khmer Rouge conflict survivors and are financially insecure and rely on their adult children for financial support and caretaking. By closely examining the NAP 2017-2030 action plan, this study found many implications that led to slow progress and ineffectiveness. The paper concludes with a discussion on the significant issues concerning the ageing population in Cambodia today and the need for the Cambodian government to commit to implementing this ageing policy effectively.

  • Arabic-speaking Older Immigrants’ Views on Risk Factors for Elder

    • Authors: Sepali Guruge, Souhail Boutmira, Souraya Sidani, Ernest Leung
      Pages: 29 - 50
      Abstract: Elder abuse is a central concern in Canada’s aging population. Our qualitative findings from a mixed methods study on risk factors for elder abuse in Toronto Arabic-speaking immigrant communities identified key risk factors that make these older adults vulnerable to elder abuse. These factors intersect at the individual (e.g., language barrier), community (e.g., discrimination), and societal (e.g., lack of access to employment) levels. The results can inform strategies to mitigate elder abuse in Arabic-speaking communities.

      Abstract: In successful ageing, the social relationships of older people are essential, as is the feeling of usefulness. Senior volunteering brings these qualities together in a single activity and is directly related to the emotional, psychological and physical well-being of older people. The global pandemic of COVID-19 has widely affected all sectors of today's society. This research investigates the consequences that the pandemic has had on the lives of senior volunteers, as this demographic cohort has been doubly affected. The methodology used in this research was qualitative. Two focus groups were conducted, with seven participants each, from different volunteer organisations across Extremadura, using the ZOOM platform. The analysis of the data shows how senior volunteers and beneficiaries have suffered and continue to suffer from the effects of the pandemic. They have been forced to adapt to new regulations and situations, which has had an impact on their activities and probably also on their physical and emotional well-being. Key words: Older people, senior volunteering, active ageing, old age, COVID-19.
