Activity and Disengagement: Life Satisfaction of In-Movers into a Retirement Community

Activity and Disengagement: Life Satisfaction of In-Movers into a Retirement Community Abstract Activity and disengagement theories do not reflect mutually exclusive processes. These processes operate on different levels (the personal level and the social structural level). High life satisfaction in the older person may be a combination of inter- and intra-personal activity coupled with structural disengagement. A study of retirement community in-movers reveals partial support for both theories. This content is only available as a PDF.

Abstract

Abstract Activity and disengagement theories do not reflect mutually exclusive processes. These processes operate on different levels (the personal level and the social structural level). High life satisfaction in the older person may be a combination of inter- and intra-personal activity coupled with structural disengagement. A study of retirement community in-movers reveals partial support for both theories. This content is only available as a PDF. Author notes 1 The study was conducted by the Gerontology Center, University of Southern California, Gratitude is expressed to Dr. James Peterson, then Acting Director of the Center, and Mrs. Aili Larson, Project Director, and Dr. Vern Bengtson. © 1973 The Gerontological Society of America
