Home, nursing home and city: The places for aging and mental health.
One of the most pressing concerns confronting society today is the aging of the population and the issue of mental health. People's physical, social, and mental health, on the other hand, is determined by where they live and the relationship they establish with their environment. In order to identify the concepts related to different environments that affect the mental health of the elderly, this short article has been done by content analysis based on a review study. All concepts related to mental health were extracted and analyzed from previous research texts. The results show that social interactions are the most central concept affecting mental health in the city, while in the nursing home is physical activity and in personal homes is privacy and independence.Author(s): Mehdi Khakzand, Zohreh Rakhshani
