Those exposed to positive stereotypes of aging lived 7.5 years longer than those with negative perception to aging. They also tend to have better memory and less feelings of worthlessness (Dittmann, 2003). The perception of aging among Americans have keynote stereotypes: “sick and frail… and unhappy” (Moody, 303). These stereotypes are not viewed in Asian cultures. Sue is not discouraged by her age
Twenty-nine states that have charter schools have fewer than 100 of them. The lowest number of charter schools in a state that did have them was 1 in Mississippi. In 2008, there were more than 4,500 charter schools serving over 1.3 million
Neuroscience and social physics suggest that we humans have typical mind-set that is more optimistic than realistic. We expect more the ‘better’ than the ‘worse.’ We anticipate things turn out better than they typically wind up being. We, in general, overestimate our expectations: children gifted, happy family life and higher life expectancy (a margin of 20 years or more); and hugely underestimate our shot comings like losing job or being diagnosed with cancer. They call it optimism bias – a bias that the future will be better than the past and the present. It is a bias that we all have.
SuperAgers are older adults individuals who are over 80 with almost same episodic memory performance middle adults (50-65 years old) people who are 20 or 30 years younger than them. The elderly adults frequently complain of declining cognitive skills, especially in the area of episodic memory. Based on the literature, we already know that successful aging exists but none of them required to have almost similar memory performances with individuals two or three decades younger than them (Kaup, Mirzakhanian, Jeste & Eyler, 2011; Rowe & Kahn, 1997). However in superagers, this complain does not occur. Superagers intact their high cognitive functions, and maintained engagement in social and productive activities.
show age related loss of function in elderly population.1 Although constipation is not considered as direct consequence of ageing, it is more common in elderly as compared to young population.2,3 Constipation may affect up to 60% individuals late in life.1 Limited mobility, medications, underlying diseases, and rectal sensory motor dysfunction may be contributing factors in increased prevalence of constipation in older adults.2,4 Prevalence of chronic constipation is 20% in general population with significant negative impact over quality of life.3,5,6 General health, mental health, and social functioning are significantly impaired as compared to healthy individual. This impairment is comparable to other medical conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis,
The elderly people with more active social network and social engagement may show a less cognitive decline. Bergman et al. (As cited in Victoria, Beatriz, Teodoro& Angle, 2003) demonstrated that both mental and physical health of elderly people are obviously affected by social relationships, and some longitudinal studies have already supported that cognitive decline and dementia are more likely to happen with the elderly people who are isolated and have poor social networks (Balfour, Masaki & Launder, 2001). Victoria, Beatriz, Teodoro and Angle (2003) have made a longitudinal study to examine the influence of social network and social engagement on cognitive decline. They chose a random sample of community-dwelling people over 65 living in Spain and made interviews and medical exams in both 1993 and 1997 to see the cognitive performance.
