Open Access Graduate Research Paper
This paper deals with the topic of life satisfaction of the aged, a rapidly growing segment of the population of the United States. The aged are persons found in many groups which constitute our society--racial, economic, education, geographic, political, and sexual. Persons who are considered aged are those who are sixty-five years of age or older. The age of sixty-five can be considered an arbitrary point, since a person does not suddenly become aged. Some persons of sixty-five years are retired, others are not; some may be healthy and active, while others are sickly and inactive; some may be involved, motivated citizens, while others are completely disengaged and only waiting for death. As in any designated age group of the population, individuals of this age group show differences from individual to individual; although there are common transitions that the aged must confront.
