According to Erik Erickson Late adulthood

April 20, 2019 0 Comment

According to Erik Erickson Late adulthood (old age) is generally considered to begin at about age 65. Suggests that at this time it is important to find meaning and satisfaction in life rather than to become bitter and disillusioned, that is, to resolve the conflict of integrity vs. despair. In the Philippines documents that establish that the senior citizen or elderly person is a citizen of the Republic and is at least sixty (60) years of age. Aging in the Philippines remains a subject that is severely under-theorized in research (Villegas, 2014). Although older Filipinos do appear in the country’s national reports, current empirical studies incorporating older adults appears to be lacking in the Philippines by year end of 2018 there will be 8,013,059 Filipino over 60, consisting 8.2% of filipino.
