- PublicaciónAcceso abiertoCambios en el adulto mayor: percepciones sobre autonomía, bienestar y calidad de vida, en el hogar y/o residencias geriátricas(Bogotá : Universidad Externado de Colombia, 2018., 2018) Méndez Herrada, Vivian Angélica; Agudelo, Marcela; Cano, Claudia, tuora; Aponte, Mauricio; Monsalve Medina, LuisaWhen talking about oldage, we have to mention that only until 2010, the National Survey of Demography and Health (ENDS) of Profamilia (2010) included for the first time the theme of oldage, and recognized the denomination "Older Adults", taking into account that the population aging in the country was increasing. Not only in Latin America the demographic population was increasing, but in Colombia mortality and fertility were decreasing, showing low economic, social and cultural indexes in this population. From there is born the interest to know about welfare or quality of life of an MA living in a nursing home, knowing from its history, the changes that brought with it. Its hould be noted that only until 2010, as mentioned, was it recognized in thesur veys of this population. However, Western society shows low interest in the AM, making the mone of the most forgotten populations in Colombia. Now, the aging process is not only a biological fact, it is also a social and cultural event that also presents different changes at physical, mental, individual and collective levels. Each person goes through a life cycle that consists of childhood, adolescence, adulthood, which is divided into early and late adulthood; the latter emphasize sallthosemen and women who over the age of 50 who constitutionally are close to belonging to such a longed for group of older adults. These different stages correspond to the normal process of development that human beings experience during their life. Starting from that, the Elderly is defined as the adultpers on between 65 years of age or more, from many country, sex, race, religion, color, position, among others. Due to the greatin crease of this population, Atchley (1993) "suggests the following categories for the elderly: old man between 65 and 74 years old, middle-age dold man from 75 to 84 years old, and old-old people aged 85 years old. or more "(p 19). Theold-young population is known as the people who are healthiest, are able to use their sources and talents in a meaning fulway, and for this reason they are more active compared to therest of the AM population (Atchley, 1993 ).On the other hand, the way in which older adults growolder and the experience that this processentails depends on different factors, these factors are physiological, psychological and/ or sociological; To this must also be added the way in which the different types of activities carried out by the MAs influence, and in what way such activities and / or relationships may deteriorate or benefit their autonomy and well-being, because up on reaching this stage of life all The components of the human being, both physical and cognitive, are faced with a continuous reduction of their normal function, although it is a slow process, it is also dynamic. Base do this, there is a need to know how the elderly perceive their autonomy, and how they express their well-being in this stage of life, through life stories of older adults who were institutionalized and semi-structured interviews with professionals of health.
