International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v69 n1 p17-29 2009
This study examined the associations between trait routinization and functional and cognitive as well as demographic indicators. A sample of American older adults living independently in a retirement community (n = 80) were assessed regarding their functional status, cognitive status, and preference for routine. Robust associations between functional status and trait routinization were found, as well as correlations between education, age, and routinization. No association between routinization and cognitive status was found. The results suggest that trait routinization is linked with various aspects of well-being in older age. Various explanations regarding the role of trait routinization and its validity are presented. (Contains 3 tables.)
