- KurzbeschreibungThis study explores the question, How do <br>severely isolated senior citizens experience their <br>worlds? Within the United States, there is a group <br>of elderly individuals I have termed geriatric <br>orphans - people who do not have family or close <br>associations to assist them with needed activities <br>of daily living. The results show that isolated <br>seniors have a higher incidence of loneliness and <br>depression. As they grow older and more isolated, <br>they seek new ways to develop and maintain some sort <br>of meaning to their lives. The participants each <br>developed patterns of behaviors to cope with losses -<br> of spouses, friends, relationships, and physical <br>abilities. Those who were still mobile enough to <br>leave their homes regularly were able to maintain <br>relationships. More often, the outside <br>relationships merely masked the loneliness and <br>feelings of inadequacy the participant would return <br>home to. The study found that those individuals who <br>were aging successfully were also those with the <br>best health. Most of the participants were <br>homebound, or totally dependent on others for <br>mobility.
