Optimal Aging-Successful Aging?
x There is more than one way to age successfully.
x Models of Aging:
x In 1998, Rowe and Kahn identified 3 components of successful aging: absence of
disease, maintenance of high cognitive and physical function, active engagement
in life.
- They said that this model is hierarchal. Problem with this research and others
like it is that it enables us to learn about the aging process but with it comes
generalizations.
- In order for people to have these 3 things, they say that you have to have the
absence of disease.
- Doctor mentioned in current events, they would say that he cant have an
active engagement in life and high cognitive function because he has a
disease. But this is not true because he is still running the hospital!

Active Engagement with Life
Vaillant's Model of Aging Well
They provided six criteria to aging well.
- he said you should have no physical disability by the age of 75 (ex. having
contacts or glasses is a disease)
- good subjective physical health
- length of undisabled life
- good mental health
- good social support system > marriage, religious affiliations, people they
could confide in
- self rated life satisfaction
- problem: these kind of researchers provide evidence that make it more
difficult for the elderly and create age discrimination
