N There is more than one way to age successfully. N Models of Aging: N 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! Avoiding Disease N etiology = N The Maintenance of High Cognitive and Physical Function Active Engagement with Life Vaillants 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 1 www.notesolution.com
