Phase:  

Beginning

Read this research to see how older adults are more highly engaged in paid work, volunteering and education—with enhanced well-being—than those under age 50.

This research summary highlights:

  • Adult roles that have both a personal and social benefit
  • The difference between involvement and engagement in activities and roles
  • Some of the findings from the Life & Times in an Aging Society Study
  • Reasons why it is important for older adults to be engaged—not just involved—in certain types of life roles: paid work, volunteerism, education or training, and caregiving

The study addressed the following questions:

  • Does involvement in paid work, volunteering, caregiving, and education vary by age? Does engagement?
  • Do those who are involved in paid work, volunteering, caregiving, and education have a different sense of well-being than those who are not? Does the relationship between involvement and well-being change as people age?
  • Does well-being vary with the depth of engagement in paid work, volunteering, caregiving, and education? Does the relationship between engagement and well-being change as people age?
