Ch.11 Social Support, Health, and Aging
Functions of Social Support
Antonucci identified three functions of social support
1) aid(instrumental health)
oTangible aid
oE.g. for old people, carrying their groceries or mowing the lawn; basically
helping with their ADLS and IADLs
2) affect (emotional support)
oQuality of persons relationship with other ppl
3) affirmation (acknowledgement of one`s values or agreement with one`s attitudes)
oKnowledge and understanding that ones beliefs are similar to others
Thoits major function of socials upport is to provide info and advice in terms of
stress
Social Support Networks:
Cantor and Little say that there are 3 levels of social support: informal, formal,
and quasi-formal
Informal Support
Family, friends, and neighbours
Provide instrumental and emotiaon support
Innermost circle members (close family members & friends) provde comfort and
safety
As person ages, these ppl continue to provide them support
Informal support members = primary caregivers to older adult who needs assistance
Children-in law are also active caregivers
Older adults who live alone AND in deteriorated neighbourhoods have no hope for
support

Cantor said that neighbours and friends are important in providing socialization and
tension reduction
oThey can provide instrumental help as well- shopping, taking letters
osome studies have provided that relationships with friend are of more value
this could be perhaps because these relationships are voluntary
apparently, European Americans have less social support than other ethnic groups
in later years
operhaps b/c of less informal support (usually families not always together)
Quasi-Formal Support
community organizations and service workers religious organizations,
neighbourhoods, and volunteer community interest groups
unpaid services to older person
providing info, helping with transportation or doing home repairs
older adults usually are long term members of these organizations
Formal Support
members of professional organizations
adult day health care centers, health clinics, respite facilities, home health care
agencies, skilled nursing homes, social services agencies, & assisted-living facilities,
& public health departments
most of the care is instrumental
technical skills including in home care, nursing home care, helath care screening,
preventive care, education, support for the patient and the informal caregiver,
transportation, and nutritional programs
they do take control of different aspects in an old persons life
skilled nursing facility (SNF) very very frail old individuals may receive better care
in a nursing home than in their own home
othey have little voice int his institution

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
