Abstract: We examined stressful life events in 544 elderly participants of PENSA, in Minas Gerais (74.6% women and 25.4% men; age = 72.11; ± 8.29; 42.1% aged 60-69; 39% 70-79 and 18.9%, 80-99). Stressful life events were classified into categories related to: death and illness, problems affecting children, caregiving, turning points (transitions), and psychological well-being. Men reported turning points (60-69), problems affecting their children (70-79), death and illness and psychological well-being (> 80); women reported turning points (transitions) (60-69), problems affecting their children (60-79), and own death and illness (> 80). Women evaluated events as more stressful than men did. There are similar results in the literature.
Foram investigados eventos de vida estressantes em 544 idosos participantes do estudo PENSA, em Minas Gerais (74,6% de mulheres e 25,4% de homens; média de idade = 72,11; DP ± 8,29; sendo 42,1% de 60 a 69 anos; 39%, de 70 a 79 e 18,9%, 80 a 99). Os eventos compuseram as seguintes categorias: eventos relacionados à finitude (morte ou doença), problemas que afetam os descendentes, relacionados ao cuidado, eventos pontuais e bem-estar psicológico. Os homens relataram eventos pontuais (60-69), problemas dos descendentes (70-79), e finitude e bem-estar (> 80); as mulheres relataram eventos pontuais (60-69), problemas dos descendentes (60-79) e finitude (> 80). As mulheres consideraram os eventos como mais estressantes do que os homens. Resultados semelhantes têm sido relatados na literatura.
