Social Relationships, Psychosocial Adaptation, and Intrainstitutional Relocation of Elderly Men.
Tesch, Stephanie A.; And Others
Gerontologist, v29 n4 p517-23 Aug 1989
Studied intrainstitutional relocation of 40 men aged 53 to 91 and its effects on social integration, and behavioral and self-reported measures of psychosocial adaptation. Found in both longitudinal and time-lag analyses of pre- and post-relocation data, relocated men had lower scores on attitude toward aging dimension, fewer friends, and evidenced better communication behavior than unrelocated men.
