This paper reports on some of the findings of a literature review commissioned to explore integrated care for older people. The study found that thinking has moved on from a focus on the problems of accessing services to exploring ways in which they may function in an integrated way. The study shows how thinking on integrated care for older people has developed, and knowledge of micro, mezzo and macro strategies is now more available. This paper reports on some of the findings of a literature review, which formed part of an empirical study into integrated care for older people in Northern Ireland [ 1 ]. The study was commissioned by a group of service providers from health and social care in the same locality, who were beginning to work together in an integrated way to provide care for older people, a field beset by the historical divisions in the UK between health and social care, and between care and services, such as housing and transport. The empirical study collected data from staff and service-users to explore their experiences of care, and the ways in which integration had been developed.

A literature review to explore integrated care for older people
This paper was intended to examine how major life events — suchas retirement, deterioration of health, and loss of spouse —experienced in the aging process may affect the elderly's lifesatisfaction. An explanation was also proposed to the change inthe effects of age groups on life satisfaction because of thecontrol of the aging effect. A simple form of a longitudinalsurvey conducted in Taiwan in and was used for theempirical test.
Metrics details. Knowledge on factors affecting the rate of cognitive decline and how to maintain cognitive functioning in old age becomes increasingly relevant. The purpose of the current study was to systematically review the evidence for the impact of retirement on cognitive functioning and on age related cognitive decline. We conducted a systematic literature review, following the principles of the PRISMA statement, of longitudinal studies on the association between retirement and cognition. Only seven studies fulfilled the inclusion criteria.
