Changes Over Time in Long-Term Care Use, ADL and IADL Among the Oldest-Old Participants of the Aging in Manitoba Longitudinal Study

  • Marcia Finlayson (a1) and Betty Havens (a2)

Résumé

Vers 2031, les personnes les plus âgées (85 ans et plus) pourraient composer 4 pourcent de la population totale du Canada. Ce document relève les changements constates dans le domaine de l'utilisation des soins de longue durée, des activités de la vie quotidienne (AVQ) et des activités instrumentales de la vie quotidienne (ATVQ) chez les participants les plus âgés du Aging in Manitoba Longitudinal Study, d'après trois éléments répartis sur 13 ans. Parmi les participants, 38,4 pour cent n'avaient pas eu recours aux soins de longue durée pendant la période examinée; entre 75 et 88 pour cent des participants pouvaient continuer à manger, à se déplacer dans leur maison et à se mettre au lit et à en sortir sans aide. En ce qui a trait aux activités instrumentales de la vie quotidienne, la proportion des gens qui n'avait pas besoin d'aide allait de 3 pour cent (réparations dans la maison) à 58 pour cent (se préparer une tasse de thé ou de café). Les résultats de ces analyses signalent l'hétérogénéité des aptitudes fonctionnelles des personnes très âgées et viennent enrichir la documentation portant sur cette tranche de la population.
