Samenvatting

Er is steeds meer empirische evidentie dat cultivering van mindfulness via gerichte training bij specifieke doelgroepen positieve gezondheidseffecten heeft, onder meer op het gebied van stresshantering en bij psychische klachten. Onderzoek naar de effectiviteit van op mindfulness-gebaseerde interventies (MBI) bij aan het ouder worden gerelateerde processen en aandoeningen staat echter nog in de kinderschoenen. Dit artikel beschrijft de wetenschappelijke achtergrond waartegen MBI mogelijk een zinvolle bijdrage kan leveren aan succesvol ouder worden, en aan de zorg voor en het welzijn van de oudere mens. In het bijzonder wordt ingegaan op het belang van cognitieve vaardigheden voor dit succes en de wijze waarop MBI deze kan ondersteunen.
