Analyzed friendship patterns of individuals aged 85+ years, 77% of whom were women. Despite high levels of disability and loss of age peers, majority were in frequent contact with friends and still had close friend. Over 31 months, predictors of friendship involvement changed. At Time 1, mood was most important; at Time 3, increased disability was most important. (Author/NB)
