Resumen

Objective: to find out and interpret the experiences and meanings attributed to the active and healthy aging of a group of elderly people over 64 living in community in the city of Montevideo, Uruguay. Method: we chose the qualitative method with dialectical hermeneutic approach. Data collection occurred through in-depth interviews with 11 elderly people aged 64 or more in the city of Montevideo, Uruguay. Results: data analysis allowed us to construct the categories personal development, physical state changing, losses, social role changes, lack of recognition, recreation activities. Conclusion: we identified relevant aspects on the need to feel useful for society and family; they recognize that their functional capacity has decreased; they feel physical limitations. Feelings of economic, physical and labor losses showed up in the study. They point out that their mental health is their strength that keeps them alive and active.
