ABSTRACT

Background: In North Rhine-Westphalia, approximately 1,000,000 people are over eighty years of age. The proportion of very old persons has become the fastest growing age group in our society. However, we lack basic insights into the quality of life and life circumstances of the very old that would allow us to better understand their needs and how society can accommodate them. In the framework of the three-year study NRW80+, the scientists will research the circumstances in which very old people live, the role they play in society and how they would like to live. This will make a valuable contribution to the development of an age-friendly culture. Moreover, the involved scientists will be able to make representative assertions regarding the life circumstances, quality of life and subjective wellbeing of very old people for the first time. A total of 1,800 people over eighty years of age will be surveyed across NRW. The aim is to draw a comprehensive and realistic picture. On the basis of these insights and a multidisciplinary perspective, the scientists at ceres (Cologne Center for Ethics, Rights, Economics, and Social Sciences of Health) want to develop practical concepts to improve medical care and nursing for very old persons and to create conditions in cities and the countryside that allow people to live fulfilled lives and increase their subjective well-being until old age. The Ministry of Innovation, Science and Research of North Rhine-Westphalia will support the study NRW80+ with a total of 1.5 million euros over a period of three years. Detailed Description Background: Current scientific surveys are limited in their potential to allow for representative assertions about quality of life and well-being in the very old population. At the same time, evidence from studies on gerontological intervention and palliative care holds that standard procedures are not able to fully capture the concept of quality of life and well-being of the very old. Aims: The three-year study NRW80+ will develop a conceptual framework of QoL in very old age. Based on an operationalizatin of this framework, representative data will be collected for the very old population in NRW. Method: Potential participants are sampled from residential registers following a two-stage sampling design. Interviews with a total of 1,800 persons 80+ living in institutions or in the community will be conducted. Interviews will take 90 minutes on average. Proxy information will be collected if the targeted individual is unable to participate himself/herself but agrees with a proxy interview. The survey includes a short screening test for mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and a test of handgrip strength. More... »
