Wellness during Midlife and Older Adulthood: A Different Perception
Foster, Thomas W.; Levitov, Justin E.
ADULTSPAN Journal, v11 n2 p66-76 Oct 2012
The authors explored how midlifers and older adults perceive wellness by factor analyzing the Perceived Wellness Survey (PWS; Adams, Bezner, & Steinhardt, 1997). Results indicated a 4-factor solution different from the 6 originally proposed wellness dimensions of the PWS, suggesting that wellness perceptions change as people age. Suggestions for further research are proposed. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
