シルバー人材センターにおける活動が生活満足度に与える影響 : 活動理論(activity theory of aging)の検証 The influence of older adults' activities at a Silver Human Resource Center in Japan on their life satisfaction : Validation of the activity theory of aging
This study aims to verify the hypothesized intrapersonal process, grounded in the activity theory of aging, whereby the activities of elderly people at Japan's Silver Human Resource Centers have a positive impact on their life satisfaction by developing a positive role identity and self-esteem. For this purpose, a survey was conducted among 279 elderly people belonging to the Silver Human Resource Center of I City. Path analysis showed significant relationships between frequency of activities at the center and role identity as a worker at the center, role identity and self-esteem, and self-esteem and life satisfaction. The findings validate the activity theory of aging.
