Loneliness and Adjustment to Old Age.
Hansson, Robert O.; And Others
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v24 n1 p41-53 1986-87
Two studies examined loneliness in older adults (N=177). Loneliness was found to be related to poor psychological adjustment and to dissatisfaction with family and social relationships. It was also related to fears, expectations, and personality characteristics likely to inhibit the restoration of personal support networks after a stressful life event such as widowhood, and to maladaptive behavior patterns.
