  • Objectives: This study aimed to compare the nutritional risk, health status and depression levels of young-old (65-74 years) and old-old (75-84 years) women on low-income. Methods: A total of 624 elderly women, each over 65 years of age, participated in this study under the auspices of a community social center. Data were collected from June to August 2011 by means of personal interviews which employed questionnaires. The research tools used in this study were the nutritional risk measuring Mini Nutritional Assesment (MNA) by Kim (2000), perceived health status developed by Lawton et al. (1982), Elderly Depression Criterion developed by Sheikh & Yesavage (1985). The collected data were analyzed using the SPSS WIN 12.0 Program. Results: Nutritional risk, perceived health status and depression levels showed a significant difference between young-old and old-old. There was a positive correlation between nutritional risk and depression and a negative correlation between nutritional risk and perceived health status. A 38.2% variance in depression levels of young-old and a 29.7% variance in depression levels of old-old were explained by perceived health status, nutritional risk and the number of people living together. Conclusion: The findings demonstrate variances in depression levels among low - income women differing in age. As a result, the outcomes of this study ought to be employed in the development of future programs aimed at promoting the health of elderly women.

  • 본 논문은 노인복지관을 방문하는 60세 이상의 노인여성을 대상으로 8주간의 화장교육을 실시하여 화장교육이 노인여성의 자긍심과 생활만족도에 미치는 영향을 알아보고자 하였다. 조사 대상자는 전체 80명 중 연령과 화장관심도를 근거로 실험군 40명, 대조군 40명으로 나누고 사전 조사 후, 실험군에게 8주간 화장교육을 실시하고, 효과 검증을 위한 사후 검사를 실시하여 실험군과 대조군의 자긍심과 생활만족도를 비교하였다. 교육 후 노인여성들의 화장교육에 대한 평가는 대체로 만족도가 높았으며 연구결과, 화장교육을 받은 실험군의 생활만족도는 유의하게 향상되었고(p<0.05), 자긍심은 교육 후 대조군이 낮아진 것에 비해 실험군은 변화가 거의 없는 것으로 나타나 교육의 효과로 인한 결과로 생각되며, 화장교육이 노인여성의 자긍심과 생활만족도에 유의한 영향을 미치는 것으로 확인되었다.

  • This study aimed to comprehensively assess the demographic characteristics, health behaviors, subjective health status, health-related restriction of life, and quality of life of male and female elderly aged 65 years older using data from the 2013-2015 Korean Community Health Survey (KCHS). The results showed that compared to the male elderly, the female elderly was less educated, did not have a spouse or had less household income, had poorer health behaviors, and had lower quality of life caused by restrictions in life. The female elderly had significantly lower quality of life than that of the male elderly. Various factors were found to affect quality of life in both sexes. The presence of spouse and BMI did not affect quality of life of men but did affect the quality of life of women. On the other hand, smoking affected the quality of life of men but not of women. Based on these results, more in-depth studies are needed on the female elderly, who have been reported to have lower health-related quality of life, and sex-specific services and programs that could more effectively improve the quality of life among the elderly should also be developed.

  • 본 연구는 여성노인을 대상으로 안구운동 훈련을 적용하여 인지기능에 어떠한 영향을 미치는지 알아보고자 하였다. 대상자는 65세 이상 여성 노인 8명을 선정하였고 안구운동은 급속안구운동을 4주 동안 적용하여 사건관련 전위 중 P300을 활용하여 그 변화를 측정하였다. 그 결과 p300의 전위값은 유의하게 상승하였고, 잠복기는 유의하게 짧아졌다. 결론적으로 여성노인에게 적용한 급성안구운동은 뇌의 긍정적 변화를 나타내 인지기능 향상에 영향을 준다는 것을 알 수 있었다.

  • The purpose of this study is to investigate the change of balance ability on aging by measuring balance ability of elderly females whose age is over 65. The subjects are ten elderly women (the mean age: 71.9) able to walk without assistants, the assistant equipments and drug dependence and ten young healthy women (the mean age: 23.2). We measured stability index (ST), Fourier index (F), weight distribution (WD), weight distribution index (WDI), synchronization index (SI) and fall index (FI) by using Tetrax (Tetra-ataxiometric Posturography). In result, STs and Fs at the low frequency region (F1) represented the significant difference between two groups at all postures with PO (pillow with eye open) exception (p<.01). Fs at the other frequency regions (F2~F8) represented the significant difference between two groups (p<.05). WDI of the elderly women represented the higher values than the young women at all postures but there are the significant difference at PO and PC (pillow with eye closed) only. These results may be due to age-related ability decline of somatesthesia, vestibular organ, central nervous system.

  • The purpose of this study was to examine the degree of successful aging and to investigate influencing factors of it in elderly to types of gender. Subjects were 73 male elderly and 77 female elderly, total 150 elderly living at K city in C province, from May to June, 2012. The data were analyzed using the SPSS Win 18.0 program for $X^2$ test, t-test, Pearson's correlation coefficients and multiple regression analysis. The correlated factors of successful aging among male elders included life satisfaction(r=.525, p<.001), family support(r=.355, p=.004), depression(r=-.555, p<.001) and loneliness(r=-.437, p<.001). Those of successful aging among female elders included life satisfaction(r=.607, p<.001), leisure satisfaction(r=.679, p<.001), family support(r=.784, p<.001), depression(r=-.516, p<.001), loneliness(r=-.644, p<.001) and self-transcendence(r=.576, p<.001). Life satisfaction and depression were statistically significant influencing factors of successful aging in male elders. Especially in the cases of female elders, life satisfaction, depression, family support and self-transcendence affected to successful aging. Life satisfaction, depression, family support, and self-transcendence were explained 52.9% in perception of successful aging among elders. This study suggests that life satisfaction, depression, family support, and self-transcendence will be considered in enhancing the successful aging promoting care and welfare designed for types of gender.

  • 1970년대 이래로 노인들의 평균적인 경제상태가 향상되어 왔지만, 상당한 수의 노인들이 여전히 빈곤할 뿐만 아니라 노인들 각자가 경험하는 경제복지는 다르다. 본 연구는 노인들이 경험하는 경제복지를 조사하고 이를 바탕으로 상이한 노인가계들간의 복지상태를 비교하였다. 경제복지는 주거비가 차지하는 가계소득에 대한 비로 측정하였다. 노인가계는 노부부가계, 노인남성가계, 노인여성가계로 구분하였다. 미국의 3,449 노인가계들이 연구분석에 사용되었다. 노인가계들간의 경제복지를 비교하기 위해 다중회귀분석이 사용되어졌다. 분석결과에 의하면 상이한 노인가계들간에 경제복지는 상당한 차이가 있었다. 특히 노인여성인 경우 경제복지가 가장 낮은 것으로 나타났다.

  • This study was conducted to identify the factors influencing health-related quality of life of urinary incontinent elderly women. The Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES) conducted by the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) was used as baseline data to evaluate how activity limitation, depression experience and subjective health perception influence the health-related quality of life of urinary incontinent elderly women. The urinary incontinent elderly women differed significantly in terms of activity limitation, depression experience, subjective health perception influence and health-related quality of life compared to elderly women without incontinence. In contrast, income and education were not correlated with either of the aforementioned groups. The subjective health perception was identified as the only factor influencing the health-related quality of life of urinary incontinent elderly women. The results of this study will serve as basic data for positive treatment promotion and development of assessment programs for incontinence patients who recognize incontinence symptoms as part of the aging process and are therefore unwilling to receive care.
