Relocation and Social Support Among Older Adults in Rural China
This study expands on previous research on the implications of relocation in China by examining the impact of rural elders' relocation on the perceived availability of emotional, instrumental, and financial support. Relocation was negatively associated with the number of social support resources that older adults perceived as being available. Although this was the case with regard to both familial and non-familial support, it was particularly evident with regard to family support and, within families, with regard to instrumental rather than financial or emotional support. Relocation has negative implications for the number of social support resources perceived to be available by older adults in rural China.
