BALDIN, Talita  e  VIDAL, Paulo Eduardo Viana. About what can be lived at 80 years: a case study about old age institutionalized. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2017, vol.12, n.2, pp. 344-360. ISSN 1809-8908.

With this article we seek to portray the case study of Marisa, an elderly 80-year resident in a Long Stay Institution for the Elderly (ILPIs), participant of a master's research. The goal is to bring thoughts on the institutionalized old age employing the theoretical framework of psychoanalysis, whose contributions make us think of the possibility to exercise subjectivity even at that generally disinvested stage of life and in places where the literature indicates a subjective impoverishment. By Marisa narrative we can see that is possible to be a subject in an ILPI, since these spaces provide listening to the old anxieties and let there be training and to maintain emotional ties. We emphasize that the way that Marisa thinks and lives her old age are not an universal, but a singular possibility of subjective existence.
