Resumo

Objectives: To determine the relationship between social support and mortality in older adults, independent of other health conditions. Method: This was a longitudinal study using the database of the 2006 SABE Study (Heath, Well-being and Aging), composed of 1413 individuals aged 60 years and over, living in Sao Paulo/Brazil. The present study used a questionnaire constructed for the SABE Study, which was reviewed by experts of Latin America and the Caribbean. The social network was evaluated using the variables: social support received; social support offered; number of members in the social network. The covariates included were age, gender, living arrangements, marital status, income, education, comorbidity, depressive symptoms, cognition and functional difficulties. Death as an outcome was evaluated after four years of follow-up. Results: From a total of 1413 older adults at baseline, 268 died in a mean follow-up period of 3,9 years (SE = 0,03). In the model adjusted offering social support and having networks composed of 9 or more members reduced the risk of death in the older adults. Conclusions: This study suggest that older adult who are offered support can benefit from mutual exchanges since reciprocity in relationships improves psychological well-being and is indicative of the quality of relationships. Thus, the older adults are part of a group of people whose role is not only to receive, but also to provide help to others, and the support offered seems to be as important as that received. (AU)
