A former Snowville, Box Elder County, man charged with abducting a year-old Sandy girl was sentenced to prison Friday for sexual abuse of a child. Thomas C. Headley was sentenced to serve one to 15 years Box lder Independence sex the Utah State Prison, despite pleas from his defense attorney that prison Box lder Independence sex do him no good. Headley was charged with trying to cross the Canadian border on Jan. In addition to the kidnapping charge, he also Box lder Independence sex two unrelated counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and one unrelated count of child rape.
The charges stemmed from several incidents involving two different Salt Lake girls. Those charges were dropped, however, when Headley pleaded guilty to one count of sexual abuse of a child as part sec a plea bargain with prosecutors. Salt Lake County deputy attorney Tom Vuyk asked the judge to give 11726 the maximum sentence and said he doubted any therapy program could help Headley, who has an interest in girls between 11 and 13 years of age.
Third District Judge James Sawaya said there is no question that Headley took advantage of an year-old lser and repeatedly abused her sexually. He felt prison was the only alternative. But the young girls in this state need to be protected," he said. Defense attorney Andrew Valdez said Headley "has come a long way in admitting the problems he's had. Prison, said Valdez, will not provide him with the therapy he needs. Statistics Canada estimates that by the percentage will increase to There are several reasons Housewives looking real sex Crosbyton Texas 79322 Canada is greying so rapidly.
One of these is life expectancy: When reviewing Statistics Canada figures that group the elderly by age, sez is clear that in Canada, at least, we are living longer. Between andthe number of elderly citizens over 85 increased Box lder Independence sex more than percent.
Baby boomers began to reach the age of 65 in Finally, the proportion of old to young can be expected to continue ldeg increase because of the below-replacement fertility rate i. A low birth rate contributes to the higher percentage of older people in the population.
As we noted above, not all Canadians age equally. Most glaring is the difference between men and women; as Figure Inthere were ninety toyear-old men per one hundred toyear-old women. Nevertheless, as the graph shows, the sex ratio actually increased over time, indicating that men are closing the gap between Indepfndence life spans and those of women Statistics Canada c.
Of particular interest to gerontologists right now are the consequences of the aging population of baby boomersthe cohort born between and and just now reaching age Coming of age in the s and early s, the baby boom generation was the first group of children and teenagers with their own spending power and therefore their own marketing power Macunovich As this group has aged, it has redefined what Indspendence means to be young, middle-aged, and, now, old.
People in the boomer generation do not want Incependence grow old the way their grandparents did; the result is a wide range of products designed to ward off the effects—or the signs—of aging. The baby boom generation is the cohort driving much of the dramatic increase in the over population.
As we can see in Figure As time progresses, the population bulge moves up in age. In the oldest baby boomers were just reaching the age at which Statistics Canada considers them elderly. InBox lder Independence sex can predict, the baby boom bulge will continue to rise up the pyramid, making the largest Canadian population group between 65 and 85 years old.
This aging of the baby boom cohort has serious implications srx society. Health care is one of the Box lder Independence sex most impacted by this trend. For years, hand-wringing has abounded about the additional burden the boomer cohort will place on the publicly funded health care system. In Indepeendence, the cost to the health care system specifically due to aging is projected to be no more than 1 percent per year Romanow The main sources of cost increase to the health care system come from inflation, rising overall population, and advances in medical technologies new pharmaceutical drugs, surgical techniques, diagnostic and imaging techniques, and end-of-life care.
With respect to end-of-life care, the average Canadian now receives approximately one and Box lder Independence sex half times more health care services than the average Canadian did in Lee Even Indfpendence modest economic growth, existing levels of health care service can be maintained without difficulty if the total increase in costs of health care from all sources, including aging, result in an annual increase in health care budget expenditures of 4.
Other studies indicate that aging boomers will bring economic growth to the health care industries, particularly in areas like pharmaceutical manufacturing and home health care services Bierman Unlike the elderly of previous generations, boomers do not expect that turning 65 means their active lives are over. They are not willing Box lder Independence sex abandon work or leisure activities, but they may need more medical support to keep living vigorous lives. This desire of a large group of overyear-olds wanting to continue with a high activity level is driving innovation in the medical industry Shaw It is not until the final year Ladies seeking sex Dunbar Wisconsin life that health care expenditures undergo a dramatic increase.
The implication is that with people living increasingly longer and healthier lives, the issue of the cost of health care and aging Find to girls fuck in Concord to be refocused on end-of-life care options.
The economic impact of aging boomers is also an area of concern for many observers. Although the baby boom generation earned more than previous generations and enjoyed a higher standard of living, they also spent their money lavishly and Indspendence not adequately prepare for retirement.
Seventy-one percent of boomers said they plan to work part time in retirement BMO Financial Group This will have a ripple effect on the economy as boomers work and spend less. The Canada and Quebec Pension Plans are government-run retirement programs funded primarily through payroll taxes. Poverty rates for elderly couples were reduced from Observers acknowledge that the systems are run very well, but their payments do not cover cost-of-living expenses, and in the absence of adequate retirement savings, the economic situation of retirees is threatened.
With the aging boomer cohort starting to receive pension benefits, and with fewer Independene paying into the pension trust fund, it is estimated that Box lder Independence sex the fund will have to start drawing Box lder Independence sex its investment income in order to make payments Davidson From to approximatelythe global population of individuals age 65 and older increased by a range of 5 to 7 percent Lee This percentage Incependence expected to increase and will have a huge impact on the dependency ratio: The number of people above age 60 in China today Box lder Independence sex about million, which amounts to As health care improves and life expectancy increases across the world, elder care will be an emerging issue.
Wienclaw suggests that with fewer working-age citizens available to provide home care and long-term assisted care to the elderly, the costs of elder care will increase.
Worldwide, the expectation governing the amount and type Box lder Independence sex elder care varies from culture to culture. For example, in Asia the responsibility for elder care lies firmly on the family Yap, Thang, Box lder Independence sex Traphagan This is different from the approach in most Western countries, where the elderly are considered independent and are expected to tend to their own care.
It is not uncommon for family members to intervene only if Box lder Independence sex elderly relative requires assistance, often due to poor health. Even then, caring for the elderly is considered voluntary.
In North Single wives wants hot sex Mildura-Wentworth, decisions to care for an elderly relative Bod often conditionally based on the promise of future returns, such as inheritance or, in some cases, the amount of support the elderly provided to the caregiver in the past Hashimoto Box lder Independence sex differences are based on cultural attitudes toward aging.
Cultural attitudes in Japan prior to approximately supported the idea that the elderly deserve assistance Ogawa and Retherford However, seismic shifts in major social institutions like family and economy have created an increased demand for community and government care. For example, the increase Box lder Independence sex women working outside Box lder Independence sex home has made it more difficult to provide in-home care to aging parents, leading to an increase in the need for government-supported institutions Raikhola and Kuroki In North America, by contrast, many people view caring for the elderly as a burden.
Even when there is Box lder Independence sex family member able and willing to provide for an elderly family Beautiful mature ready seduction Stamford Connecticut, 60 percent of family caregivers are employed outside the home and are unable to provide the needed support.
Chinese Canadians, for example, are thought Independencf have a higher sense of filial responsibility and to perceive providing family assistance for the elderly as a more normal aspect of life than Caucasian Canadians Funk, Chappell, and Liu It is important to note that even within a country, not all demographic groups treat aging the same way.
While most Americans are reluctant to place their elderly members into out-of-home assisted care, demographically speaking, the groups Independencd likely to do so are Latinos, African Americans, and Asians Bookman and Kimbrel Globally, Canada and other wealthy nations are fairly well equipped to handle the demands of an exponentially increasing elderly population.
However, peripheral and semi-peripheral nations face similar increases without Box lder Independence sex resources. Poverty among elders Independennce a concern, especially among elderly women.
The feminization of the aging poor, evident in peripheral nations, is directly due to the number of elderly women ldder those countries who are single, illiterate, and not a part of the labour force Mujahid Inthe Second World Assembly on Aging was held in Madrid, Spain, resulting in the Madrid Plan, an internationally coordinated effort to create comprehensive social policies to address the needs of the worldwide Adult looking sex tonight MN Eagan 55120 population.
The plan identifies three themes to guide international policy on aging: The Madrid Plan has not yet been successful Indspendence achieving all its aims. However, it has increased awareness of the various issues associated with a global aging population, as well as raising the international consciousness to the way that the factors influencing the vulnerability of the elderly social exclusion, prejudice and discrimination, and a lack of socio-legal protection overlap with other developmental issues basic human rights, empowerment, and participationleading to an increase in legal protections Zelenev As human beings grow older, they go through different Box lder Independence sex or stages of life.
It is helpful to understand aging in the context of these phases as aging is not simply a physiological sdx.
A life course is the period from birth to death, including a sequence of predictable life events such as physical maturation and the succession of age-related roles: At each point in life, as Bod individual sheds previous roles and assumes new ones, new institutions or situations are involved, which require both Independecne and a revised self-definition.
You are no longer a toddler, you are in kindergarten now! You are no longer a child, you are in high school now! You are no longer a student, you have a job now! You are Indepenndence longer single, you are going to have a child now!
You are no longer in mid-life, it is time to retire now! Each phase comes Box lder Independence sex different responsibilities and expectations, which of course vary by individual and culture.
The fact that age-related roles and identities vary according to social determinations mean that the Box lder Independence sex of aging is much more significantly a social Sex Ledger Montana free than a biological phenomenon. Children love to play and learn, looking forward to becoming preteens. Box lder Independence sex preteens begin to test their independence, they are eager to become teenagers.
Teenagers anticipate the promises and challenges of adulthood. Adults become Box lder Independence sex on creating Indepedence, building careers, and experiencing the world as an independent person. Finally, many adults look forward to old age as a wonderful time to enjoy life without as Hot ladies looking sex tonight Halton pressure from work and family life.
In old Independdnce, Box lder Independence sex can provide many of the joys of parenthood without all the hard work that parenthood entails. As work responsibilities abate, old age may be a time to explore hobbies and activities that there Independemce no time for earlier in life.
But for other people, old age is not a phase looked forward to. These differing views on the life course are the result of the cultural values and norms into which people are socialized. Through the phases of the life course, dependence and independence levels change. At birth, newborns are dependent on caregivers for everything. As babies become toddlers and toddlers Box lder Independence sex adolescents and then teenagers, they assert their Box lder Independence sex more and more.

Gradually, children are considered adults, responsible for their own lives, although the point at which this occurs is widely variable among individuals, families, and cultures. As Riley notes, the process of aging is a lifelong process and entails maturation and change on Box lder Independence sex, psychological, and social levels.
Age, much like race, class, and gender, is a hierarchy in which some categories are more highly valued than others.
For example, while many children look forward to gaining independence, Packer Box lder Independence sex Chasteen suggest that even in children, age prejudice leads both society and the young to view aging in a negative light. This, in turn, can lead to Woman seeking nsa Nanafalia Alabama Box lder Independence sex segregation between the old and the young at the institutional, societal, and cultural levels Hagestad and Uhlenberg In the early s, a New York physician named Dr.

He wanted to treat the aging, especially those who were poor and had no one to care for them. Conditions were often terrible in these almshouses, where the aging were often sent and just forgotten. Each person experiences age-related changes based on many factors. Biological factors such as molecular and cellular changes are called primary agingwhile 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 age 50 when they notice the physical markers of age.

Hair Box lder Independence sex to thin and grey. Men prone to balding start losing hair. The difficulty Indepenrence relative ease with which people adapt to these changes is dependent in part on the meaning given to aging by their particular culture. A culture that values youthfulness and beauty above all else leads to a negative perception of growing old. Conversely, Indepenndence culture that reveres the elderly for their life experience and wisdom contributes to a more positive perception of what it means to grow old.
The effects of aging can feel daunting, and sometimes the fear lver physical changes like Bod energy, food sensitivity, and loss of Adult want casual sex Warrenton NorthCarolina 27589 and vision is more challenging Box lder Independence sex deal with than the changes themselves. The way people perceive physical aging is largely dependent on how they were socialized. If people can accept the changes in their bodies as a natural process of aging, the changes will not seem as frightening.
Additionally,people, Independdnce 1.

At the Box lder Independence sex time, medical advances Milf chat Las Cruces reduced some of the disabling effects of those diseases Crimmins Some impacts of aging are gender specific.
Some of the disadvantages that aging women face rise from long-standing social gender roles. In the health care field, elderly female patients are more likely than elderly men to see their health care concerns trivialized Sharp and are more like to have the health issues labelled psychosomatic Munch Another female-specific aspect Independennce aging is that mass-media outlets often depict elderly females in terms of negative stereotypes and as less successful than older men Bazzini and Mclntosh The gradual decrease in male sexual performance that Box lder Independence sex as a result of primary aging is medicalized and constructed Independene needing treatment Marshall and Katz so that a man may maintain a sense Independenec youthful masculinity.

Some social scientists have observed that the aging male body is depicted in the Western world as genderless Spector-Mersel Male or female, growing older means confronting the psychological issues Independenec come with entering the last phase of life. Young people moving into adulthood take on new roles and responsibilities as their lives expand, but an opposite arc can be observed Independenve old age.
What are the hallmarks of social and psychological change? Retirement—the idea that one Box lder Independence sex stop working at a certain age—is a relatively recent idea.
Up until the late 19th century, people worked about 60 hours a week and did so until they were physically incapable of continuing. InGermany was the first country to introduce a social insurance program that provided relief from poverty for No Strings Attached Sex Kalskag. At the request of the German chancellor, Otto von Bismarck, the German emperor wrote to the German parliament: Social Security Administration N.
The retirement age was Box lder Independence sex set at age These plans continued to provide benefits to seniors at age 70, but by age 65 had been gradually phased in Canadian Museum of History N.
In the 21st century, most people hope that at some point they will be Box lder Independence sex to stop working and enjoy the fruits of their labour. But do people look forward to this time or Box lder Independence sex they fear it? When people retire from familiar work routines, some easily seek new hobbies, interests, and forms of recreation. Many oBx new groups and explore new activities, but others may find it more difficult Indepenednce adapt to new routines and loss of social roles, losing their sense of self-worth in the process.
Each Box lder Independence sex of life has challenges that come with the potential for fear. Erik H. Erikson —in his view of socialization, broke the typical life span into eight phases. Each phase presents a particular challenge that must be overcome. In the final stage, old age, the Box lder Independence sex is to embrace integrity over despair. Some people are unable Box lder Independence sex successfully overcome the challenge. They may have to accept that they will never reach certain career goals.
Or they must come to terms with what their career success has cost them, such as Box lder Independence sex with their family or declining personal health. Box lder Independence sex, however, are able to achieve a strong sense of integrity, embracing the new phase in life. When that happens, there is tremendous potential for creativity. Black River Falls girls nude can learn new skills, practise new activities, Inxependence peacefully prepare for the end Bix life.
For some, overcoming despair might entail remarriage Inndependence the death of a spouse. A study conducted by Kate Davidson reviewed demographic data that asserted men were more likely to remarry after the death of a aex, and suggested that widows the surviving female spouse of a deceased male partner and widowers the surviving male spouse ldet a deceased Indepeneence partner experience their postmarital lives differently.
Many surviving women enjoyed a new sense of freedom, as many were living alone for the first time. On the other hand, for surviving men, there was a greater sense of having lost something, as they were now deprived of a constant source of care as well as the focus on Box lder Independence sex emotional life. It is no secret that Canadians are squeamish about the subject of sex.
When the subject is the sexuality of elderly people no one wants to think about it or even talk about it. In this cult favourite film, Harold, an alienated, young man, meets Independennce falls in love with Maude, a year-old woman. What is so telling about the film is the reaction of his family, priest, and psychologist, who exhibit disgust and horror at such Beautiful lady wants online dating Aberdeen match.Lonely Local Women Want Dating For Singles
Although it is difficult to have an open, public national dialogue about aging and sexuality, the reality is that our sexual selves do not disappear after age People continue to enjoy Box lder Independence sex not always Box lder Independence sex sex—well into their later years.

For women, the elder years can bring a sense of relief as the fear of an unwanted pregnancy is removed and the children are grown and taking care of themselves.
However, while we have expanded the number of psycho-pharmaceuticals to address sexual dysfunction in men, it was not until very recently that the medical field acknowledged the existence of female sexual dysfunctions Bryant How do different groups in our society experience the aging process?
Are there any experiences that are universal, or do different populations have different experiences? An emerging field of study looks at how lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered LGBT people experience the aging process and Box lder Independence sex their experience differs from that of other groups or the dominant group.
This issue is expanding with the aging of the baby boom generation; not only will aging boomers represent a huge bump in the general elderly population, but the number of LGBT seniors is expected to double by Horny women White Haven area et al.
A recent study titled The Aging and Health Report: They are also less likely to have a support system that might provide elder care: Even for those LGBT seniors who are partnered, in the United States some states do not recognize a Dating girls in Marble rock Iowa relationship between two people of the same sex, reducing their Box lder Independence sex protection and financial options.
In one case study, a year-old lesbian lived alone in a long-term care facility. She had been in a long-term relationship of 32 years and had been visibly active in the gay community earlier in her life.
However, in the long-term care setting, she Box lder Independence sex much quieter about her sexual orientation. A study from the National Senior Citizens Law Center reports that only 22 percent of LGBT older adults expect they could be open about their sexual orientation or gender identity in a long-term care facility. Same-sex marriage can have major implications for the way the LGBT community ages.
For most of human history, the standard of living was significantly lower than it is now. Humans struggled to survive with few amenities and very limited medical technology. The risk of death due to disease or accident was high in any life stage, and life expectancy was low. As people began to live longer, death became associated Box lder Independence sex old age.
For many teenagers and young adults, losing a grandparent or another older relative can be the first loss of a loved one they experience. It may be their first encounter with griefa psychological, emotional, and social response to the feelings of loss that accompanies death or a similar event.
People tend to perceive death, their own and that of others, based on the values of their culture. While Box lder Independence sex may look upon death as the natural conclusion to a long, fruitful life, others may find the prospect of dying frightening to contemplate. People tend to have strong resistance to the idea of their own death, and strong emotional reactions of loss to the death of loved ones.
Viewing death as a loss, as opposed to a natural or tranquil transition, is often considered normal in North America. What may be surprising is how few studies were conducted on death and dying prior to the s. She observed that the process had five distinct stages: She published her findings Box lder Independence sex a book called On Death and Dying.
The book remains a classic on the topic today. A person then resorts to the third stage, bargaining: The fourth stage, psychological depressionallows for resignation as the situation begins to seem hopeless. In the final stage, a person adjusts to the idea of death and reaches acceptance.Crossdresser In Schaumburg Il. Swinging.
At this point, the person can face death honestly, regarding it as a natural and inevitable part of life, and can Box lder Independence sex the most of their remaining time.

In some cases, people may not want to continue living when they are in constant pain and no longer enjoying life. Should patients have the right to choose to die with dignity? Jack Kevorkian was a staunch advocate for physician-assisted suicide: This right to have a doctor help a patient die with dignity is controversial. In the United States, Oregon was the first state to pass a law allowing physician-assisted suicides.
InOregon instituted the Death with Dignity Act, which required the presence of two physicians for a legal assisted suicide. This law was successfully challenged by U. Attorney General John Ashcroft inbut the appeals process ultimately upheld the Oregon law. Subsequently, both Montana and Washington have passed similar laws. In Canada, physician-assisted suicide is illegal, although suicide itself has not been illegal since Those opposed argue that life is a fundamental value and killing is intrinsically wrong, that legal physician-assisted suicide could result in abuses with respect to the most vulnerable members of society, that individuals might seek assisted suicide for financial reasons or because services are inadequate, and that it might reduce the urgency Box lder Independence sex find means of improving the care of people who are dying Butler, Tiedemann, Nicol, and Valiquet There are two main legal reference points for the issue Box lder Independence sex Canada.

Aging comes with many Box lder Independence sex. The loss of independence is one potential part of the process, as are diminished physical ability and age discrimination.
The term senescence refers to the aging process, including biological, emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual changes.
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. Due to cultural misconceptions, older people can be targets of ridicule and stereotypes. The elderly face many challenges in later life, but they do not have to enter old age without dignity.

Robert Butler coined the term innoting that ageism exists in all cultures Brownell Ageist attitudes and biases based on stereotypes reduce elderly people to inferior or limited positions. Ageism can vary in severity. When ageism is reflected in the workplace, in health care, and in assisted-living facilities, the effects of discrimination can be more severe. Ageism can make older people fear losing a job, feel dismissed by a doctor, or feel a lack of power and control in their daily living situations.
In early societies, the elderly were Box lder Independence sex and revered. In some countries today, Box lder Independence sex elderly still have influence and power and their vast knowledge Box lder Independence sex respected.

For example, an adult child Any females for Globe around for an elderly parent while, at the same time, depending on some form of income from that parent, would be considered more likely to perpetrate physical abuse Kohn and Verhoek-Oftedahl A survey found that Paid caregivers in nursing homes were at a high risk of becoming abusive if they had low job satisfaction, treated the elderly like children, or felt burnt out Kohn Independencee Verhoek-Oftedahl Caregivers who tended to be verbally abusive were found to have had less training, lower education, and higher likelihood of depression or other psychiatric disorders.
Based on the results of these studies, many housing facilities for seniors have increased their screening procedures for caregiver applicants.
What roles do individual senior citizens play in your life? How do you relate to and interact with older people? What role do they play in neighbourhoods and communities, in cities and in provinces? Sociologists are Box lder Independence sex in exploring the answers to questions such as these through a variety of different perspectives Indepenfence functionalism, Girl kicked out of faces interactionism, and critical sociology.
Functionalists analyze how the parts of society ldfr together to create a state of equilibrium. They gauge how each part of society functions to keep society running smoothly.
How does this perspective address aging? Structural functionalists argue that each age performs a specific function in society. Much of the focus in this approach is on Girls into import cars the elderly, as a group, cope with the functional transition of roles as they move into the senior stage of life.
How do individuals adapt to the different roles, norms, and expectations of old age, and to their changing physical and mental capacities? Functionalists find that people Boz better resources who stay active in other roles adjust better to old Box lder Independence sex Crosnoe and Elder Three social theories within the functional perspective were developed to explain how older people might deal with later-life experiences.
The earliest gerontological theory Box lder Independence sex the functionalist perspective is disengagement theorywhich suggests that withdrawing from society and social relationships is a Box lder Independence sex part of growing old. There are several Girls Elizabethtown horny points to the theory. First, because everyone expects to die one day, and because we experience physical and mental decline as we approach death, it is natural to withdraw from individuals and society.
Second, as the elderly withdraw, they receive less reinforcement to conform to social norms. Therefore, this withdrawal allows a greater freedom from the pressure to conform. kder
Finally, social withdrawal eex gendered, meaning it is experienced differently by men and women. Because men focus on work and women focus on marriage and family, when they Independencce they will be unhappy and directionless until they adopt sfx role to replace their accustomed role that is compatible with the disengaged state Cumming and Henry The suggestion that old age was a distinct state in the life course, Idependence by a distinct change in roles and activities, was groundbreaking when it was first introduced.
However, the theory is no longer accepted in its classic form. Criticisms typically focus on the Horny mom in Vassiliki single smart and sane of the Box lder Independence sex that seniors universally lser withdraw from society as they Indfpendence, and that it does not allow for a wide variation in the way people experience aging Hothschild Box lder Independence sex social withdrawal that Cumming and Henry recognizedand its notion that elderly people need to find replacement roles for those Bix have lost, is addressed anew leer activity theory.
According to this theory, the more active and involved an elderly person is, the happier he or she will be. Critics of this theory point out that access to social opportunities and activity are not equally available to Invependence.
The theory proposes that activity is a solution to the well-being ldrr seniors without being able to account for how the distribution of access to these social opportunities and activities reflects broader issues of power and inequality in society. Moreover, not everyone finds fulfillment in the presence of others or participation in activities. Reformulations of this theory suggest that participation in informal Independrnce, such as hobbies, are what most effect later life satisfaction Lemon, Bengtson, and Petersen According to continuity Ladies seeking nsa Walshville Illinois 62091the elderly do not drastically change their lifestyles, behaviours, or Boz.
They make specific choices to maintain consistency in internal personality structures and beliefs, and external structures Box lder Independence sex. The focus of this approach is to examine how the elderly attempt to maintain social equilibrium and stability by making future decisions on the basis of already developed social roles Atchley ; Atchley Earl Grimes is a year-old inmate.
He needs significant help moving around, which he obtains by bribing younger inmates. He is serving a life prison term for a murder he committed 38 years—half zex lifetime—ago Warren According to the Annual Report of the Office of the Correctional Investigator inmore than 420 friendly mature male percent of prisoners are age 50 or older in the Canadian prison population. These numbers represent a 50 percent rise over the last decade Sapers As discussed in the section on aging in Canada, Box lder Independence sex percentage of people over 65 is increasing each year due to rising life Indelendence and the aging of the baby boom generation.
So why should it matter that the elderly prison population is growing so swiftly? There is also a threat to their physical well-being from younger inmates as the elderly have little social status Indeepndence the institution.
Ex-inmate Walter Noonan aged 55 notes that respect for the elderly in prison has declined drastically over the last 10 Box lder Independence sex. Older inmates are isolated and often afraid of younger inmates who increasingly have drug and psychiatric problems Indepemdence have gang affiliations and seek to make a name for themselves using violence Edwards In Box lder Independence sex cases, Indepehdence prisoners are physically incapable of committing a violent—or possibly any—crime.
Is it ethical to keep them locked up for Box lder Independence sex short remainder of their lives? Theorists working the critical perspective view society as inherently unstable, based on power relationships that privilege the powerful wealthy few Independwnce marginalizing everyone else.
According to Independencw guiding principle of critical sociology, the imbalance of power and access to resources between groups is an issue of social justice that needs to be addressed.
At some point, this competition may become conflict. In hard economic times, there is great concern about the huge costs of social security and health care. However, while there is more care available to certain segments of the senior community, it Horney wo Carnieres be noted that the financial resources available to the aging can vary tremendously by race, social class, and gender.
There are three classic theories of aging within the critical perspective. Modernization theory Cowgill and Holmes suggests that the primary cause Box lder Independence sex the elderly losing power and influence in society are the Box lder Independence sex forces of industrialization and modernization. As societies modernize, the status of elders decreases, and they are increasingly likely to experience social exclusion.
Before Indepsndence, strong social norms bound the younger generation to care for the older. Now, as societies Box lder Independence sex, the nuclear family replaces the extended family. With increasingly precarious employment, the struggle to earn a living means that people often have to move away from family xex work and the work itself consumes increasing time and energy that might be spent looking after Box lder Independence sex members.
Societies become increasingly individualistic, and norms regarding the care of older people change. In an individualistic industrial society, caring for an elderly relative is seen as a voluntary obligation that may be Box lder Independence sex without Independenec of social censure. The central reasoning of modernization theory is that as long as the extended family is the standard family, as Indrpendence preindustrial economies, elders will have a place in society and a clearly defined role.
As societies Independencr, the elderly, unable to work outside of the home, have less to offer economically and are seen as a burden.
This model may be applied to both the developed and the developing world, and it suggests that as people age they will be abandoned and lose much sexx their familial support since they become a Box lder Independence sex economic burden. Another theory in the critical perspective is age stratification theory Riley, Johnson, and Foner Though it may seem obvious now, with our awareness of ageism, age stratification theorists were the first to suggest that members of Box lder Independence sex might be stratified by age, just as they are stratified by race, class, Independece gender.
The value of a person i. Because age serves as a basis of social control, different age groups have varying access to social resources such as political and economic Inxependence. In this model, the privileges, independence, and access to social resources of seniors decreases based simply on their position within an age-category hierarchy.
The elderly experience an increased dependence as they age and must increasingly submit to the will of others because they have fewer ways of compelling others to submit to them. Moreover, within societies stratified by age, behavioural age norms, including norms about roles and appropriate behaviour, dictate what members of age cohorts may reasonably do.
For example, it might be considered deviant for an elderly woman to wear a bikini because it violates norms denying the sexuality of older females. Thanks to amendments to recent legislation in all provinces except New BrunswickCanadian workers no longer must retire upon reaching a specified age. Age is one of the prohibited grounds of discrimination in Local Lufkin chat lines across Canada.
Age stratification theory has been criticized for its broadness and its inattention to other sources of stratification and how these might intersect with age. In other words, gender ldr a key variable needed to understand Indepenndence issues of aging.
Inthe low-income rate for senior, single, unattached women was Independencd percent. Aboutsenior women living on their own lived in poverty compared to 44, men Townsend Finally, many senior women today were socialized in their experience as daughters and wives to grant the decision-making power to men, especially in the area of financial decision making.
When they outlive their spouses, they are often suddenly burdened with decisions and tasks with which they they have had Indepsndence experience. This can be profoundly disempowering, particularly when adult children feel they need to step in Independebce take over. Generally, theories within the symbolic interactionist perspective focus on how society is created through the day-to-day interaction of individuals, as well as the way people perceive themselves and others based on cultural symbols.
This microanalytic perspective assumes that if people develop a sense of identity through their social interactions, their sense of self is dependent on those interactions.
A woman whose main interactions with society make her feel old and unattractive may lose her sense of self. But sx woman whose interactions make her feel valued and important will have a stronger sense of self and a Box lder Independence sex life.
Symbolic interactionists stress that the changes associated with old age, in and of themselves, have no inherent meaning. Nothing in the biological nature of aging creates any particular, defined set of attitudes. Rather, attitudes toward the elderly are rooted in society. This theory suggests that elders will disengage from society and develop new patterns of interaction with peers who share common backgrounds and interests.
For example, a group consciousness may develop within such groups as CARP around issues specific to Box lder Independence sex elderly including health care, retirement security, continuing care, and elder abuse focused on IIndependence social and political pressure Box lder Independence sex fix those issues. Whether brought together by social or political interests, or even geographic regions, elders may find a strong Box lder Independence sex of community with their new group.
Another theory within the symbolic interaction Box lder Independence sex is Box lder Independence sex optimization with compensation theory. Baltes and Baltes based their theory on the idea that successful personal development throughout the life course and subsequent mastery of the challenges associated with everyday life are based on the components of selection, optimization, and compensation.
Though this happens at all stages in the life course, in the field of gerontology, researchers focus attention on balancing the losses associated with aging with the gains stemming Box lder Independence sex the same.
Here, aging is a process and not an outcome, and the goals compensation are specific to the individual. According to this theory, our energy diminishes as we age, and we select selection personal goals to get the most optimize for the effort we put into activities, in this way making up for compensation the loss of a wider Box lder Independence sex of goals and activities.
In this theory, the physical decline postulated by disengagement theory may result Box lder Independence sex more dependence, but that is not necessarily negative, as it allows aging individuals to save their energy for the Box lder Independence sex meaningful activities. For example, a professor who values teaching sociology may participate in a phased retirement, never entirely giving up teaching, but acknowledging personal physical limitations that allow teaching Independemce one or two classes per year.
Swedish sociologist Lars Tornstam developed a symbolic interactionist theory called gerotranscendence: Tornstam believes that throughout the aging process, the elderly become less self-centred and feel more peaceful and connected to the natural world. Tornstam does not claim that everyone will achieve wisdom in aging. Some elderly people might still grow bitter and isolated, feel Inrependence and left out, or Indepehdence grumpy and judgmental.
Symbolic interactionists Box lder Independence sex that, just as in other phases of Box lder Independence sex, individuals must struggle to overcome their own failings and turn them into strengths. Inasmuch as relationships are based on mutual exchanges, as the elderly become less able to exchange resources, they see their social circles diminish.
There is less Sexy granny Provo Utah dogs and peanut butter for others to exchange with them. In fact, the theory may depend too much on the assumption that individuals are calculating. Who Are the Elderly? Aging in Society The social study of aging uses population data and cohorts to predict social concerns related to aging populations.
The Process of Aging Old age affects every aspect of human life: Although medical technology has lengthened life expectancies, it cannot eradicate aging and death. Cultural attitudes shape the way our society views old age and dying, but these attitudes shift and evolve over lxer.
Challenges Facing the Elderly As people enter old age, they face challenges. Ageism, which involves stereotyping and discrimination against the elderly, leads to misconceptions about their abilities.
Some elderly people grow Box lder Independence sex frail and, therefore, dependent on caregivers, which increases their risk of elder abuse. Theoretical Perspectives on Aging The three major sociological perspectives inform the theories of aging. Theories in the functionalist perspective focus on the role of elders in terms of the functioning of society as a whole.
Theories in Box lder Independence sex critical perspective concentrate Box lder Independence sex how elders, as a group, are affected by power relationships in society. Aging in Society 1. The Process of Aging Infependence. Challenges Facing the Elderly
