The Aged

In accordance with Saucers et al. (2002), with the decrease of the physical abilities, the arrival of the third age and with result of the illnesses, the aged ones tend to go modifying its quotidianos customs of life and habits for more sedentary activities. The attached results to the idleness and the inactivity are very serious. They can cause reduction in the physical performance, the motor capacity, the ability of concentration, coordination, generating in cases more serious depressive processes, for the absence of the motivation, unreliability, with consequent solitude and social isolation. The absence of physical ability and the lack of functional disposal are the agent central offices of low the quality of life in the aged ones. Therefore with the increase of the age, it has a reduction of the disposal, the corporal mass, of the muscular force and flexibility, being that the effect are accented by exercise absence. Already it was more than confirmed that the aged ones in such a way reach improvements of practical of regular physical activity how much the young, when promoting anatomical modifications as well as the improvement of auto-esteem contributing for a bigger sociability.

A to be observed factor is that, in all the societies where if exaltou the presence of the aged one, had a domain in relation enter the appropriation of knowing and being able, that is, the more simple the society and the more depended accumulated knowing and of the memory of its aged members, more power possuam. The aged ones were transmitting of culture in the primitive societies, eminently conservatives and msticas where the ancios were very respected. Already on the contemporaneidade, on its structure if it bases on the capitalist principles, that consist of man power exploration, domination, alienation, wage-earning work etc, the situation of the aged one if it presents very complicated. Rodrigues (2004) salient that it is necessary that if effective establish cultural changes that make possible public politics in favor of the disruption of myths, exculpatory practical preconceptions and, that still today are the responsible greaters for maltreatment with the aged ones.
