In case of current South Korea, the rapid graying is in the progress. Because of it, the increase of elders who live alone causes variety of social, economic and national problems. Especially in the modern city, the health care, safety and maintenance of pleasant and joyful life of elders who live alone are being a big social issue. Even though practical services have been tried at the whole of government approach, the detailed alternatives are insufficient to improve the daily life support and service to approach the information. This research suggests the "ELA Service Model" which actively improves the easy access to information and corresponds to condition and circumstance of elders for providing the ICT-base Elderly Living alone care service. It is a step self-life support service based on fundamental desire of elders which resolves the problem and contributes to establish the active and balanced policy to the elderly.

최근 우리나라의 경우 빠른 고령화로 독거노인의 추세 또한 사회적, 경제적, 국가적인 다양한 문제를 야기시키고 있다. 특히 나 홀로 사는 노인계층의 건강수명관리, 독거노인의 안전, 길어진 노령시기의 쾌적하고 행복한 삶유지 등이 사회적 이슈로 부각되고 있으며, 범정부차원에서 다양한 서비스 제공을 위한 실천과제를 모색하고 있으나, 실질적으로 노인의 일상생활지원 및 서비스 정보접근 향상을 위한 구체적 대안은 매우 부족한 실정이다. 본 연구는 ICT 기술기반의 독거노인복지서비스 제공을 목적으로, 개방된 공개정보를 적극 활용하고 노인계층의 정보 접근을 향상 및 독거노인의 여러 상황조건에 부합하는 "ELA 서비스 모델"을 제시한다. 이는 독거노인의 기본 욕구에 따른 단계별 자가생활지원 서비스 모델로 현재 제공되거나 계획 중인 서비스의 편중 또는 과부족을 해결하고, 독거노인의 요구수준에 맞는 실질적 서비스 제공을 목표로 일상생활지원에 균형 잡힌 서비스 정책 수립에 기여할 것으로 기대한다.
