  1. Age, adjustment, and costs : A study of chronic illnesses.

    Article - En anglais

    Much concern has been expressed about increasing health costs associated with an aging population.

    In relation to chronic conditions, this study demonstrates that cost seems to be a function of adjustment to the chronic condition rather than of age in and of itself.

    We know from previous work that people with poor psychosocial adjustment cost considerably more than do people who are either moderately or well adjusted and this study shows that older, poorly adjusted persons are no more costly than their younger counterparts.
