Your Home as a Linchpin of Well-being

Asheville Real Estate Journal- Newsy-News : Perceptions on Aging

Perceptions of aging can and in actuality do influence the way people interact with each other. I've noticed this is true as well when it comes to expectations about older people  and how and where we choose to live.  Here is a collection of PDFs I have used in my related real estate choices research.

HOUSING AS THE LINCHPIN OF WELL-BEING

HARVARD  Joint Center for Housing Studies and the AARP Foundation

“Affordable, accessible, and well-located housing is central to quality of life for people of all ages, but especially for older adults (defined here as 50 and over). As the single largest item in most household budgets, housing costs directly affect day-to-day financial security as well as the ability to accrue wealth to draw upon later in life. Accessibility is essential to older adults’ health and safety as physical and cognitive limitations increase. Proximity of housing to stores, services, and transportation enables older adults to remain active and productive members of their communities, meet their own basic needs, and maintain social connections. And for those with chronic conditions and disabilities, the availability of housing with  supports and services determines the quality and cost of long-term care—particularly the portion paid with public funds.”

NATIONAL SOCIAL HEALTH AND AGING PROJECT

The National Health, Social Life and Aging Project (NSHAP) is supported by the National Institutes of Health, including the National Institute on Aging, the Office of Women's Health Research, the Office of AIDS Research, and the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (5R01AG021487). NSHAP is also supported by theNational Opinion Research Center, whose staff is responsible for the data collection.

 

INTER CULTURAL DIFFERENCES

PERCEPTIONS OF AGING

Aging, stereotypes, crosscultural, values- Perceptions of aging influence societal behaviors and expectations towards older people (e.g.,Pasupathi &Löckenhoff, 2002) as well as older adults’ wellbeing and coping with the aging process (e.g.Levy, 2003; Levy & Myers, 2004). The majority of studies in this field have focused on individual differences in perceptions of aging within (mostly Western) cultures, but there is growing evidence that views of aging may differ across cultures as well (e.g.,Arnhoff, Leon, & Lorge, 1964;Giles et al., 2000).

The present study extends previous research by comparing multiple aspects of aging perceptions across 26 cultures and examining their culture level associates. To provide the background for this work, we review previous research on intercultural differences in perceptions of aging and discuss theoretical perspectives on the causes of such differences.

Hi janeAnne, I don't see nearly enough written about elevators in single family homes. When I saw your picture (above) my thought was "too many stairs."

My forever home has to have an elevator.
