The changing roles of ritual in later life

Authors:
BRILLER Sherylyn, SANKAR Andrea
Journal article citation:
Generations, 35(3), 2011, pp.6-10.
Publisher:
American Society on Aging

Ritual can give meaning to significant features that characterise contemporary old age, and helps older adults and families face challenges. This introductory article to the Fall 2011 Generations gives an overview of the issue's articles, which show how ritual is important and why it is beneficial for those who work with elders to understand ritual's role in structuring social life throughout the life course. By examining different kinds of ceremonial and daily activities, the article explores how ritual involves repetitive and symbolic actions, patterned behaviour, religious and secular life, and extraordinary and ordinary parts of older adults' lives.

Sleep, occupation and the passage of time

Author:
GREEN Andrew
Journal article citation:
British Journal of Occupational Therapy, 71(8), August 2008, pp.339-347.
Publisher:
College of Occupational Therapists

This article explores the extent to which sleep has been considered in occupational therapy and occupational science and finds that the coverage of the subject is patchy: many authors do not mention it whereas some provide comprehensive and useful information. One reason for this variability could be that it is unclear whether sleep is an occupation and this question is debated. Although it is widely acknowledged that sleep is essential to the performance of daytime activity, most definitions of occupation and activity exclude sleep unless occupation is defined in the context of time use. A brief review of the social history of sleep and the timing of occupations suggests that modern life and the natural sleep-wake cycle might be out of synchrony. The science of sleep is explored and the factors necessary for initiating sleep are examined, with aspects of daily occupation being found to influence sleep. It is suggested that, given the range of conditions affecting sleep that are seen by occupational therapists, it may be helpful to have a better understanding of sleep and the measures that might improve it. Because sleep occupies so much time, research in occupational science is recommended.
