(2015). It can be supported by Singh and Srivastava (2014) who studied the relationship between loneliness and quality of life among 50 elderly people and found a significant correlation, having female as high scorers on loneliness and low scorers in quality of life than male. These investigations revealed that elderlies face loneliness and differ in their level of loneliness based on their demographic profile. However, these studies are only limited to the experience of loneliness and don’t show the quality of relationship of elderlies with other
The concern of the study is to know the long-term result of MBCT with the use of standardized measures of depressions (BDI-II), mindfulness (MAAS), and rumination (RSS) and the outcomes are collected yearly for 3 years. Thirty-nine participants were observed and the results showed a significant decrease in depression. Although the depression scores for the last year increased, it was still inside the normal range of BDI-II. Rumination and mind attention showed a strong negative correlation which means as rumination increases, the mind attention decreases and vice versa. It was therefore concluded that continued MBCT aids and training can help relapse prevention.
The study evaluates the effect of adolescent depression after a decade with respect to social, demographic, and health outcomes. The results suggest a significant correlation with depression recurrence, migraine headaches and lower level of self-reported health status. There is little correlation with the individual’s education, career, income or relationship status. An analysis of these outcomes helps in understanding the effect of adolescent depression and need for screening and treatment.

(al A. e.) Also, retired construction workers showed lower health status than the workers of the other field. They also reported many problems associated with vision, neck and shoulders, knees, hips, ankles, joints and wrists. (al L. e., 2006) Moreover, some Swedish construction workers participated in health examinations between 1971 and 1992. A study was conducted among these workers and it showed that the workers who work as roofers, insulators and rock workers experienced higher age adjusted rate of disability. (Jarvholm, 2005).
These people’s exhaustion may negatively affect the care that is given to the patients. One research study delved into the childhood of the caregivers to determine if the how the caregivers bonded as a child influenced whether or not they would become exhausted. The researchers used surveys to determine that the caregivers who were less secure in their relationships with others did become exhausted when caring for patients with dementia. They recommended that staff be educated about the effects of attachment on burnout (Kokkonen, Cheston, Dallos, & Smart, 2014). Reference Kokkonen, T.-M., Cheston, R. I., Dallos, R., & Smart, C. A.
Wherein unemployed (11%) participants greatly suffer from social issues compare to those who are employed (6%), student (1%), and self-employed (0%) participants. Unemployed participants spend a lot of their time inside the home than those who have job. In regards, unemployed workers were twice as likely as their employed counterparts to experience psychological problems (Paul & Moser, 2009; Belle, D. et.al,2016). The stress of unemployment can lead to changes in family relationships and in outcomes for children (Belle, D. & Bullock, H., 2016). As cited by Belle and Bullock(2016), a meta-analysis conducted by Paul and Moser (2009) reinforces the findings that unemployment was associated with depression, anxiety, psychosomatic symptoms, low subjective well-being, and poor self-esteem.
According to the statistics present in the article, the Indigenous population have a lower life expectancy by 10 years as well as higher infant and maternal mortality rates. Illness and deficient amount of resources are what cause these statistics and not enough efforts are being made to help their standards be met. This population also suffers from higher rates of low birth weights, child obesity, and adult
This is also when decline in the bodily functions begins (Travers and Dacey, 1996). According to Berk (2007), apects such as the skin, cadiovascular, respiratory, muscular and immune systems gradually decline as one gets older. Degeneration of sensory organs and the nervous system degeneration is less gradual and accelerates in middle age. In ‘Adult Development & Aging’ Susan Krauss Whitbourne (2001) highlights that physical decline can result in decreased sense of ability in the elderly (as cited in Hewstone et al., 2005, p. 216.)
The concept of health enunciated by WHO as encompassing physical, mental and social well-being is more and more seen as a practical issue for policy and practice. In particular, there is growing evidence to suggest interplay between mental and physical health and well-being and outcomes such as educational achievement, productivity at work, development of positive personal relationships, reduction in crime rates and decreasing harms associated with use of alcohol and drugs. It follows that promoting mental health through a focus on key determinants should not only result in lower rates of some mental disorders and improved physical health but also better educational performance, greater productivity of
According to (Luey H. S., 1995) findings the effect of deafness depends on the age the deafness occurs. The people who loss their hearing in early childhood are less affected than those who became deaf after speech development. Because they can feel the loss of speech that made them sad. Graf and Bijl’s (Donald A. Ramsdell) (2002) research support the above findings. They interview 523 adults who had hearing loss more than 60dB in the better ear and reported that 43.2% female respondents with post-lingual hearing loss showed signs of mental distress compared to pre-lingual female
