Zusammenfassung

Gesundheit und Wohlbefinden Älterer gewinnen gerade in Zeiten der Bevölkerungsalterung an Bedeutung für die Sozial- und Gesundheitspolitik – und damit nicht zuletzt für die Forschung. Wir geben einen Überblick über den Stand der sozialwissenschaftlichen Gesundheitsforschung, und zwar im Hinblick auf aktuelle Entwicklungen und theoretische Perspektiven auf die Gesundheit Älterer sowie Gesundheitsdynamiken im Kontext, methodische Herausforderungen und die Entwicklung von Pflegebedarf und Pflegeleistungen für Ältere – um mit einer kurzen Beschreibung der Forschungslücken abzuschließen.
