dc.description.abstractPast research into the seasonal migration of the elderly has mainly focused on how health and economic systems are affected by this group as well as how social and kinship ties are maintained by active participants. Deteriorating health has been implicated in past studies as a major variable in cessation intentions. This research focuses on why cessation has already taken place. It makes a contribution to existing seasonal migration literature through exploration of several variables determining cessation. Findings indicate that although health concerns are a major contributing variable to cessation decisions, a significant percentage lose interest in the activity after participating for extended periods of time. This loss of interest supports Atchley’s continuity of aging theory in that this once pleasurable behaviour, initiated in mid-life, is redefined in later years and loses its significance as a pursuable activity.
