Abstract

RODRIGUES, Rosalina Aparecida Partezani et al. The experience of a group of retired-elderly people: research-action. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 1997, vol.5, n.4, pp. 85-89. ISSN 0104-1169.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-11691997000400011.

The present study aims at comprehending the retired people through a group experience as well as allowing them to reflect about their condition. The authors utilized the research-action methodology, with 25 retired subjects who worked in the University, aging from 51 to 79 years old. The narratives related to their experiences were obtained through verbal interaction, group discussions and interviews. From the analysis of the experiences emerged questions associated to the retired-elderly interests, their physical and mental health, relationship, learning process, social environment and leisure.

Keywords : elderly; retired; group of retired-elderly people.
