NOT ALL OLDER ADULTS ARE ALIKE Many assume that older adults are all alike. However, as this age group includes 5 decades of in-dividuals, the differences among older adults are great—actually greater than those seen in other age groups.

The memory of adults of all ages seems to be similar when they are asked to recall names of teachers or classmates. And older adults remember more about their early adulthood and adolescence than about middle adulthood (Berk, ).

Older adults retain semantic memory or the ability to. Each person experiences age-related changes based on many factors. Biological factors such as molecular and cellular changes are called primary aging, while aging that occurs due to controllable factors such as lack of physical exercise and poor diet is called secondary aging (Whitbourne and Whitbourne ).

Most people begin to see signs of aging after fifty years old, when they notice the. Many older adults have problems with vision. About 2/3 of adults with vision problems are older than Hearing Challenges Hearing loss is common in older adults, affecting 1 in 3 people older than 60 and half of those older than The Basics.

The following sections address health conditions that can impact older adults’ health literacy. Psychologists researching the normal changes of aging have found that although some aspects of memory and processing change as people get older, simple behavior changes can help people stay sharp for as long as possible.

Although researchers are still piecing together what happens in a healthy aging brain, they can explain some typical changes. Older Latinos will account for the largest increase: Inthey will constitute 22 percent of the older population, compared to 8 percent of today’s older adults.

The population of older immigrants in the U.S. has increased by 70 percent in the last 20 years, from million to million. They had excellent recall for all odor-paired pictures, and especially for those associated with pleasant smells.

Brain imaging indicated that the piriform cortex, the main odor-processing region of the brain, became active when people saw objects originally paired with odors, even though the smells were no longer present and the subjects hadn.

This section discusses some of the challenges we encounter during this process. As already observed, many older adults remain highly self-sufficient. Others require more care. Because the elderly typically no longer hold jobs, finances can be a challenge.

And due to cultural misconceptions, older people can be targets of ridicule and stereotypes. 65 percent of older people suffer from depression. the incidence of depression among older people is twice as high as that among younger adults.

inability to sleep is a strong indicator of depression for older people. one to two percent of older adults are clinically (severely) depressed. The following inclusion criteria were used: (1) peer-reviewed and academically published observational, RCT or twin studies that (2) investigated the impact of engagement in social activities, social networks or social support on cognitive function and (3) included a sample of community dwelling older adults (> 50 years) with no known cognitive.

The influence of physical activity training on cognitive performance and emotional well-being in the elderly. A considerable number of studies have provided evidence for the beneficial effects of physical training in older adults for physiological processes (e.g., Karavirta et al., ) as well as for cognitive performance (Colcombe and Kramer, ).
