Fear of falling (FoF) is a real public health problem among elders. Indeed, this multi-determined phenomenon is highly prevalent in the elderly and leads to several negative physical and psychological consequences. Therefore, identify elders at risk of experiencing this fear is essential. By means of a two-year longitudinal study, we examined the relationships between different variables (i.e., sociodemographic, physical, psychological and cognitive variables) and FoF among 92 elders aged 65 and over. All participants were assessed twice (i.e., at the beginning and at the end of the study) with besides quarterly calls in order to report falls. We conducted univariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses. As expected, our multivariate model showed that a prior history of falls is a significant predictor of FoF. We also pointed out a higher tendency among women to experience FoF than among men. Furthermore, we showed, through univariate analyses, significant relationships between mood assessment and FoF. Moreover, our work attempted, in an originally way, to study the influences of subjective aging on FoF. Some results from the univariate analyses (e.g., participants with less positive attitudes towards the ageing process tend to experience more FoF) encourage researchers to carry out other studies in this direction.

Background. Given the relatively modest therapeutic benefits of drug treatments (and their associated costs) in dementia, there is growing interest in non-pharmalogical approaches, including light therapy (« Light Based Therapy » ; LBT). Although various literature review exist, little attention has been given to the effects of these therapies (according to their modalities of application) on parameters related to both circadian rhythm and clinical parameters associated with dementia. Aims. To provide an overview of available studies using LBT as non-pharmacological approach for managing persons with dementia and to make recommendations for its use. Method. Systematic searches in Medline and PsycINFO were carried out, from their inception to February 2017, by means of the combination of key words including dementia and light therapy. Results. Forty-two articles were reviewed with particular attention to the subjects characteristics and the modalities of the therapy. The effect of LBT has been considered as a mean of intervention to entrain the circadian rhythm as well as in a clinical approach to reduce behavioral disorders, to reduce cognitive decline or loss of independence, and so on. Depending on the parameters and modalities, the effect of LBT is partially or non-significant. Conclusions. Based on this literature review, some recommendations were formulated: prioritizing ‘naturalistic’ devices, setting a minimum threshold of 2,000 lux light intensity peak, testing the modulation of the light intensity during the day and finally, assessing the adequacy between the type of light (color) and the desired therapeutic objective (relaxing or stimulating effect).

This study examined whether the effects of stereotype threat on memory and subjective age were moderated by positive age stereotypes and self-perceptions of aging among older adults. Perceived threat as a mechanism underlying these effects was also explored. Results showed that stereotype threat (high vs. low threat) did not affect the dependent variables. Moreover, self-perceptions of aging did not moderate the effect of stereotype threat on the dependent variables. However, for people with more positive age stereotypes, older people under high threat perceived more threat than people under low threat. This could be explained by an effect of age stereotypes in the high-threat group: the more positive age stereotypes held by participants, the more they perceived threat, which in turn decreased their memory performance and made them feel mentally older. We hypothesized that age group identity is stronger in people with more positive age stereotypes, which increase perceived threat. [less ▲]

Nous nous intéressions ce midi au « vieillissement ». Stéphane Adam (Chargé de cours en psychologie du vieillissement et Responsable de l’Unité de Psychologie de la Sénescence -ULiège) introduit son intervention en posant quelques questions testant nos représentations au sujet des personnes âgées. Quel est le pourcentage de personnes de plus de 65 ans qui souffrent de dépression ? qui se sentent seules ? … Son objectif, à travers son introduction mais aussi, plus largement, dans le cadre de ses recherches et au sein de l’Unité de sénescence qu’il dirige, est de démontrer dans quelle mesure notre appréhension du vieillissement influence nos attitudes et solutions pour la prise en charge des seniors. Ces représentations (majoritairement erronées) ne sont pas sans conséquence sur la santé physique et mentale des personnes âgées. A l’aide de différentes illustrations issues de notre vie quotidienne, il démontre la tendance de notre société à véhiculer une image négative de la personne de « grand âge ». L’âgisme est une réelle cause de discrimination, aujourd’hui. Et les stéréotypes vont bon train à l’égard des personnes âgées. Il pointe, en particulier, que dans le secteur des soins, l’image de la personne âgée est très négative. Le message de Stéphane Adam est percutant et convaincant. Il ne devrait pas être possible de travailler dans le secteur du soin, sans être sensibilisé au processus de vieillissement. Trop d’erreurs sont commises, faute d’une vraie connaissance de cette population. Nous interroger - comme il le fait - sur nos propres représentations est déjà une amorce pour mieux percevoir nos déformations quant à notre vision du vieillissement. Cette approche s’avèrera utile avant de s’engager concrètement dans une démarche de soin, un projet politique, architectural ou technologique orienté vers les personnes âgées. [less ▲]
