Data were enhanced by conducting additional interviews with 14 neighbors and 7 family members of the informants and those participants were assured that their names would not be connected with the interview and that their responses would be kept confidential (Table 4). The researcher also made observations to understand the relations of the informant with other persons and activities that promoted elderly health. Focus group discussions were conducted with elderly persons who lived in the study village and were not the study informants to gain insight into the impact of local culture on healthy aging, a topic that has received little attention in the literature to date. In addition, meetings with the four research committee members who had expertise in (i) community health education and qualitative research, (ii) behavioral science, (iii) gerontology and (iv) public health nursing were conducted monthly throughout the study period to discuss the interview transcriptions, data analysis and interpretation of findings.
