CANADAS DE LA FUENTE, Guillermo Arturo; FERNANDEZ CASTILLO, Rafael  and  GARCIA RIOS, María del Carmen. How the elderly ones perceive the welfare labor of the sanitary professional young ones. Gerokomos [online]. 2010, vol.21, n.1, pp.17-20. ISSN 1134-928X.

The problem that exists today in socio-economic issues in policies related to the activity care of the elderly from different points of view, it affects clearly to him and the immediate surroundings, including the nursing personnel that ensures their health. To make an analysis of the perception of the elderly on the nursing personnel more young has been made use of the "mental maps" described by Buzán. The main reason is based on the relationship of both stems, especially in geriatric centers. The mental maps illustrate us on preconceived ideas and socially learned that has the elder since childhood around gender segregation to personal level, social and professional. All this makes the work of the staff, already stressed due to inexperience and the harsh transition to the labor market, translated with the passage of time in conduct not desirable for residents and health problems for workers.

Keywords : Nursing; perception; mental maps; geriatric; gerontology; young.
