2014-2015 Centre on Aging and Health Distinguished Lecture

Integration of Older Adults in Society: Is It Really Beneficial?

Neena Chappell, PhD, FRSC, FCAHS
Canada Research Chair in Social Gerontology, University of Victoria

Dr. Chappell will discuss social integration for older adults in terms of connection and participation, empowerment, and community. She will relate these concepts to individual participation as well as to broader concerns in society. Research suggests that interaction with others is good for the health and quality of life of older adults and perhaps most types of interaction can be positive, leaving a wide spectrum for individual choices. Although there is limited research on interventions, several examples appear beneficial such as the World Health Organization's Age-Friendly Cities and Communities idea. This presentation will discuss the benefits of social integration as well as ideas on how older adults can become more socially engaged.
