ALVAREZ, Ricardo Lema  e  URETA, Ximena. Leisure practices in housing complexes for older adults in Montevideo. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.2, pp. 1-16. ISSN 2359-0769.

Policies on late adulthood have focus on providing solutions to basic needs such as housing, health or food, by postponing other social and cultural needs. This article considers the main results of a research carried out from a human development perspective which analyzes leisure practices in older people, with the objective of knowing the leisure experience based on the meaning attributed to these practices. The methodological approach considered is quantitative, for which a survey design was applied to a sample of 245 older in public housing complexes, in the city of Montevideo (Uruguay). He pointed to analyze leisure practices, the continuity, rupture or increase within the activities and identify the main leisure constraints that intervene. Among the main results of the study is the predominance in practice of passive leisure activities and low cognitive demands, such as: Watching TV, listening to music and listening to radio. Although within the activities mentioned above, there were no significant differences between men and women, a sexual division of leisure was found, with traditionally feminine activities (for example singing, making crafts) and masculine activities (for instance, Do exercise, DIY activities) . Finally, the main leisure constraints that affect most of the population included in this study are related to health (intrapersonal), lack of company (interpersonal) and economy (structural).
