Autonomy and Citizenship in the Late Third Age
Luppi, Elena
Educational Gerontology, v36 n10-11 p872-892 2010
The research presented in this paper is focused on the concept of active citizenship in the third age. This topic has been investigated within a group of elderly people in the second phase of the third age. The research was monitored by the social services of Bologna (Italy) in a support-care project. The results gathered led to considerations on educational actions to make elderly citizens more autonomous and more active. The results also provide indicators to assess and increase the third age services needed to allow the elderly to fully exercise their citizenship. (Contains 2 tables.)
