Résumé

Cet article se consacre essentiellement aux couples mariés et aux individus âgés mariés résident dans des foyers pour personnes âgées et dans des centres d'accueil en Ontario. Les données ont été recueillies à partir de réponses d'administrateurs à des questionnaires envoyés par la poste (331 administrateurs d'établissement en 1988 et 395 en 1989). Les résultats montraient que 12 pour cent des lits, dans ces deux sortes d'établissements, sont occupés par des personnes mariées. En outre, il a également été démontré qu'il y a plus de couples âgés dans les foyers de personnes âgées que dans les centres d'accueil, qu'ils habitent ou non dans la même chambre. Enfin, les résultats ont laissé entendre qu'il y aurait, dans les centres d'accueil, davantage d'individus mariés vivant seuls (leur époux vivant ailleurs) que dans les foyers de personnes âgées. De nouvelles perspectives de recherche sont envisagées.
