Who founded the continuity theory of aging?
Havinghurst - after founding the activity theory
What is the Continuity theory of aging?
- Suggests that personality is developed by old age and people don’t change so their roles/life satisfaction remain consistant. Elderly retain same
- coping skills they have always had
What are the four personality types of the Continuity theory of aging?
- Integrated - have adjusted well to aging
- Armored-defended - continue the roles they had in middle age
- Passive dependent - highly dependent or disinterested
- Unintegrated - fail to cope at all

Havinghurst and Albrecht

Useful for appropriate environments for seniors
