  • Mixed methods evaluation on village neighborhood social cohesiveness and
           quality of life

      Authors: Su-I Hou , Esteban Santis , Anna V. Eskamani , Khristen Holmes
      Abstract: The “Village” model has become an emerging, community-based, social initiative to help older adults age in place. This study aims to examine neighborhood social cohesion (NSC), or social connectedness and quality of life, from the perspective of village members. A mixed-method evaluation was used to examine two Florida villages, a master-planned village (FV1) and a diverse neighborhood village (FV2). Both are full members of the National Village to Village Network. The quantitative and qualitative data provided complementary and deeper understanding. Quantitative findings showed that FV1 members scored higher at NSC, and qualitative findings further confirmed that village program social activities were critical to building connections, especially for those who have lost loved ones and were single. Findings should be interpreted considering the predominantly white racial makeup and affluence of village participants. Findings point to the importance of NSC as older adults age and suggest that programs should prioritize activities that strengthen social connectiveness. This is one of the first mixed-methods evaluations examining NSC and quality of life among village participants.

  • Intergenerational living during the pandemic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Rachel Stevenson , Jean Atkinson
      Abstract: This is an opinion piece provided by Rachel, 31, and her grandmother, Jean, 97, who have been living together for two and a half years, since Rachel became unwell with myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome. Each author shares their experiences of intergenerational living through the pandemic. What each of them has learned about intergenerational living during the COVID pandemic and mutual support and what has surprised them, including how it has improved quality of life for both of them. This is an unusual intergenerational first-person account of intergenerational mutually supportive living during the pandemic, with insider insights.

  • Internet use among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and
           queer+ older adults during COVID-19

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Trevor G. Gates , Mark Hughes , Jack Thepsourinthone , Tinashe Dune
      Abstract: This brief paper aims to examine the extent to which lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ+) older adults in Australia used the internet for social, informational and instrumental needs, including how internet use changed during COVID-19. The authors used a survey advertised to LGBTIQ+ older adults (N = 394), recruited as a sample of convenience, on social networking sites and via LGBTIQ+ and aged care organizations. Self-reported internet use decreased during COVID-19, with various significant between-group differences in purposes of internet use and sexuality, gender, living arrangements and time. The internet can be a critical form of social contact for LGBTIQ+ older adults, and this is among the first studies in Australia about their internet use during COVID-19. Findings from the study suggest patterns of internet use may be decreasing among LGBTIQ+ older adults during the pandemic.

  • COVID-19 and “ageing well” for the older migrants and refugees in
           rural Australia: the case of Bhutanese elders in Albury, New South Wales

      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to highlight the challenges and opportunities for the well-being of older migrants and refugees in rural Australia by learning from the example of the Bhutanese community in Albury, New South Wales. This viewpoint focusses on health and aged care barriers that affect the well-being of older migrants and refugees in Australia. It also demonstrates how these can be intensified due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Engagement though agriculture, and a sense of “belonging” strengthen the cultural well-being of the Bhutanese older adults in Albury. However, major issues remain as health-related resources and information are lacking in rural Australia. How this group’s meaningful activities in Albury enabled collaborations to be built is shown in this working example and can provide lessons for other communities that experience similar problems of disconnection as they get older. The information regarding the Bhutanese older adults in Albury is primarily based on the authors’ personal communication with the General Secretary of the Bhutanese Australian Community Support Group in Albury Wodonga Inc. Australia’s older population is growing rapidly, and older adults from culturally and linguistically diverse migrant and refugee backgrounds face numerous barriers such as limited linguistic, health and digital literacy. The authors describe common health and aged care issues that affect the well-being of older adults in rural Australia. They particularly emphasize those that occurred or intensified due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This novel information is now especially relevant to the health and aged care sectors in changing and diverse communities not only in Australia but also overseas.

  • Older adults’ experiences of social distancing and the role of the
           community center during COVID-19

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Lauren Wolman , Lynda Atack , Sanjana Khan , Sarah Zwicker , Czarielle Dela Cruz , Lisa Roy , Esther Arbeid
      Abstract: Although very much needed from an infection control perspective, there is deep concern about the impact of social distancing during COVID-19, particularly on older adults. A phenomenological design was used to gain insight into older adults’ experiences of living with social distancing during the first wave of COVID-19. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with eight older adults. Six themes were identified: a smaller life, feelings of unease, resilience, connection to the community centre, technology: a boon, but one with limitations, and the way through social distancing. This study captures older adults’ experiences early in COVID-19. Findings indicate that there is much we can learn from these older adults regarding social isolation that could apply to other older adults and potentially other age groups during the time of pandemic and beyond.
