Social Support, Psychological Well-Being, and Health among the Elderly
Portero, Cristina Fernandez; Oliva, Alfredo
Educational Gerontology, v33 n12 p1053-1068 Dec 2007
This article is based on the influence that participation in the Third Age University Program has on the health and well-being of the elderly and with the mediation of social support. The data were obtained from a longitudinal study of 147 elderly students of the Third Age University of Seville (Spain). The hypothesis was that the elders who belong to the program would have, as a consequence of their participation in it, better health, well-being, and social support. The results revealed the influence that social support exercises on well-being and, as a result, upon health. (Contains 5 tables and 3 figures.)
