  • 본 연구의 목적은 한국에서 장래에 이루어질 노인주거연구의 주제를 예측할 수 있도록 일본, 미국, 한국의 노인주거연구의 경향의 차이를 파악하고 비교하기 위한 것이다. 본 연구는 세나라에서 1940년대부터 1990년대 현대까지 발표된 노인주거연구에 대한 학술지와 논문을 분석함으로써 이루어졌다. 세 나라에서 전체 772편의 논문을 수집하여 이를 발표된 연도와 주제에 따라 분류하였다. 본 연구는 일본과 미국의 연구 경향의 특징을 별도로 발표한 후속 연구이다. 일본에서는 1950년대에 노인주거에 대한 연구가 시작되어 80년대 후반에 절정을 이루었으며, 그 이후로 서서히 관심이 줄어들고 있는 추세이다. 일본에서의 주요 주제는 노인홈과 노인시설내의 주 생활조사, 3대 동거 주택, 유료노인홈과 노인시설의 소비자 문제등이다. 미국의 경우, 노인주거의 연구는 일본보다 빠른 1940년대에 시작되어 70년대와 80년대에 걸쳐서 다른 때보다 더 많은 연구가 발표되었다. 주요주제는 1970년대부터 80년대에는 노인주거와 노인시설에 집중되어 있었으나 80년대 이후에 노인주거의 연구방법과 노인주택정책방향으로 관심이 바뀌고 있다. 한국에서의 노인주거에 대한 연구는 세나라 중에서 가장 늦은, 1970년대 후반부터 시작되어 80년대 후반 이래로 그 관심이 점점 증가하고 있다. 한국에서 가장 관심이 있는 연구대상의 하나는 일본과 마찬가지로 기혼자녀와 노부모와의 동거주택에 대한 주제이다. 이상 세나라의 연구주제에서의 차이점은, 한국과 일본에서는 모두 노인주거와 연구방법 분야에는 비교적 관심이 적은 반면, 미국에서는 3대동거주택에 대한 관심이 적은 것이다. 일본과 미국 두나라에 비하여 한국에서는 노인주거 연구에 있어서 아직까지 다양한 주제를 발견하기 어려운데 그 이유는 한국에서는 노인주거에 대한 구체적인 개발이 아직까지 이루어지지 않아서 노인주거에 대한 경험도 많지 않기 때문이라고 생각된다. 앞으로 한국에서도 노인주거가 개발된다면 그 후에는 보다 다양한 연구주제가 나타날 것이라고 기대된다. 예를 들면 노인거주시설의 질적인 비교, 특수한 형태의 노인주거에 대한 요구, 노인주거내의 주생활조사나 평가, 노인을 위한 설비의 디자인 등에 관한 연구들을 생각해 볼 수 있다.

  • It is important to collect and analyze the data from the traffic accident analysis system and the National Statistical Office to reduce the traffic accident rate of the elderly, who are the weakest. In particular, it is more important to analyze the data in areas where the elderly population is large and where accidents occur frequently. This paper visualizes and analyzes the data of elderly traffic accidents that occurred in recent 5 years in the area where many elderly people live in Buyeo-gun. The elderly traffic accident type, accident area, and location data of the elderly can be useful for the improvement measures and related decision making to reduce the elderly traffic accidents.

  • In 2018, 14.3 percent of South Korea's elderly population aged 65 or older entered an aged society and is expected to enter a super-aged society with more than 20 percent of the elderly population around 2025. Older adults often visit different medical institutions to take medicine, which requires medication management, such as interaction between each drug. In this study, we wanted to analyze the U.S. system, which specializes in drug management for the elderly, and Korea's system, which is about to enter a super-aged society, to find a systematic way to manage drugs for the elderly. The method of study was a systematic literature study on elderly drug management in Korea and the United States. Studies have shown that the United States has enacted the Medication Therapy Management (MTM) for the elderly and has been running the Senior Drug Enforcement Program. In Korea, a community care business is underway to manage drugs for senior citizens, but it is analyzed that the elderly need to have a special medicine system for senior citizens to use them more safely.

  • 고령화 사회로 인구 구조가 재편되면서 많은 사회적 문제가 발생하고 있으며, 노인의 삶의 질을 제고하기 위한 방안으로 노인문화복지 프로그램이 중요하며, 특히 노인문화기관의 역할이 크다. 따라서 노인문화기관에서 운영하는 전근대적인 문화복지 프로그램이나 노인문화기관의 운영 실태는 단계적으로 개선하고, 참여형 문화복지 프로그램으로 개편해야한다. 또한, 협의체 구성을 통해 노인 문화복지 활성화를 위한 제도와 법률 개정 등 문화복지 프로그램의 안정적인 운영이 필요하다. 이를 통해 노인의 삶의 독립, 참여, 보호, 자아실현, 자존감을 찾는다면 성공적인 노인복지기관의 노인 문화복지 프로그램이라고 본다.

  • The purpose of this study was to compare the dietary life and nutrient intakes among elderly persons residing at nursing homes and their homes in order to provide fundamental data for improved foodservice and dietary management. We recruited 150 subjects at a nursing home stay and 150 home stay elderly persons for a survey. The results were as follows. There was no significant difference in frequency of napping between the two groups. The frequency of going out was higher in the home stay subjects, but regular exercise was higher in nursing home stay subjects. Subjects possessed the following diseases: dementia and digestive disorders for nursing home stay elderly men, blood vessel disorder and diabetes for home stay elderly men, digestive and blood vessel disorders for nursing home stay elderly women, and blood vessel and heart disease for home stay elderly women. In a health-related assessment, smoking, drinking, and teeth condition of nursing home stay subjects were not higher than those of home stay subjects. The ratio of subjects who ate meals everyday was higher in nursing home stay elderly women than in home stay women. While most nursing home subjects ate adequate amount of meals, home stay subjects ate until they were full. The daily energy intakes of men and women were 2,229.9 kcal and 2,302.1 kcal for nursing home subjects and 1,894.0 kcal and 1,885.9 kcal for home subjects, respectively. Nutrient intake was also higher in nursing home than home stay subjects. In summary, the dietary life of elderly persons residing in a nursing home was higher than that of elderly persons residing at their home from the view point of meal frequency, meal intake, and nutrient intakes. Therefore, systematic assessment and management of nutrition for elderly staying at a nursing home or at home alone should be conducted continually.

  • This study has been conducted to assess the effectiveness of the elderly employment programs through change of social capital by understanding how the elderly employment programs in the elderly employment policy of Korea has effected the change of social capital. The method of research was to design the research in the nonequivalent control groups design from the quasi-experimental design for the 500 elderly who participated and 250 who have not participated in the elderly employment programs through distributing structured questionnaire by classifying into before and after the project during 7 months from March 1, 2010 to September 30, 2010 to those above 65 living in Changwon. The social capital which is an important variable among the measurement index of the study has been set as trust, network, and social participation fields based on the aforementioned theoretic background. When the fact that there is a partial difference in the change of social capital of the elderly according to the participation in the elderly employment programs and the timing (before/after) is looked at in terms of change of social capital after controlling the general character of the elderly and the pre-score, there are differences per timing according to the participation in the elderly employment programs. Thus, the participation in the elderly employment programs had a significant difference in the change of social capital. It is possible to see that the trust, network, and social participation of the social capital all increased in the elderly with difficulties in their living status. It can be seen that the participation in the elderly employment programs brings forth increase of social capital for the elderly with difficulties in their living status. Among the social capitals, the elderly who participated in the elderly employment programs showed that the trust increased the most. Consequently, in order to increase the comprehensive social capital, the programs must be carried out focused on the vulnerable class in parallel to the elderly employment programs for the general elderly of other classes.

  • With the result of Korean national senior's real life state survey analysis that is triennially conducted based on Article 5 of Welfare of the Aged Act, this study categorized the senior according to age norm cognition, and figured out the characteristic of each category, and analyzed their needs for life satisfaction and hoping activities. Because the senior at present are on higher level of health, education, and economy than 20 to 30 years ago, it is about time to repeat discussion about the policies established in the past in terms of society, culture, industry, welfare, employment, and participation as a convergence approach. As a result of analysis study, the senior divided into three groups:, resignation type, progressiveness type, and saving appearances type. Their life satisfaction level and hoping activities by senior segment groups are different. By results of this study, the preservation of income for senior will be needed, and they don't want volunteer activities so that there are another policy system will be needed to vitalize senior's social participation for their healthy physical and mental life. Korean senior were satisfied with family members relationship, -although Korean senior's life satisfaction level is not higher so that the new policy to care senior by senior system will be reviewed more actively.

  • 노인인구가 증가하면서 노인 건강관리를 비롯한 여러가지 복지대책이 중요한 사회적 관심사로 대두되고 있다. 그중에서도 치매노인의 관리 문제는 노인 복지 측면에서, 반드시 해결해야 할 최대의 과제로 떠오르고 있다. 그러나 외국에 비해 양로원 시설도 충분히 갖추어지지 못한 우리의 실정에서 이 치매노인을 위한 복지는 사실상 전무한 상태다. 이러한 가운데서 지난 1월 우리나라 최초로 서울시 북부노인종합복지관(서울시 노원구 하계동 중계 9단지 내)에서 치매탁로소를 열어, 치매노인이 있는 가정에 새로운 희망을 던져주고 있다. 서울시 거주 치매노인이면 누구나 이용할 수 있는 치매탁로소의 개소 의의와 이용방법을 소개한다.

  • This study aimed to understand the differences in general characteristics, principal diagnosis, injury-related characteristics, and types of transportation accidents between young-old and old-old patients who were hospitalized owing to injury based on data from the Korean National Hospital Discharge In-Depth Injury Surveys. We used a complex sample cross tabulation analysis (chi-square test) and complex sample generalized linear model (t-test). Therefore, the primary focus of healthcare professionals working with the old-old should prevent falls in the home and increase the available medical care, financial aid plans, and psychosocial support for aging. Additionally education on traffic accident prevention and road safety is particularly important for old-old patients.
