  • Social media data serves as a proxy indicator to understand the problems and the future of public opinion in Korean society. This research used 109,015 news data from 2016 to 2018 to analyze the sensitivity of the elderly and employment in Korean society, and explored the possibility of expanding the labor force in Korean society, which is facing a cliff between the elderly and the population. Topic keywords for employment of the elderly include "elderly*employment", "elderly*employment", and "elderly*wage". As a result of the analysis, positive sensitivity prevails for most of the period, and it is possible to expand the working-age population. Positive feelings about expanding employment opportunities for the elderly and negative feelings about low wages have brought to light the reality of the elderly who are still poor despite their work. In this study, social big data was used to analyze the perceptions and sensibilities of Korean society related to the elderly and employment through hierarchical crowd analysis and related text mining analysis.

  • This study is a descriptive research study to identify osteoporosis knowledge and osteoporosis prevention activities among care providers in nursing home. The subjects were 142 care providers in S and Y city. The Data were collected from July 1 to July 20, 2019, and analyzed SPSS 24.0 Version. The result showed that the osteoporosis knowledge of among care providers was moderate. It showed differences in educational status, osteoporosis management training experience, residents number and importance awareness of elderly bone health. And prevention activities differed according to osteoporosis management training experience and importance awareness of elderly bone health. There was a positive correlation between knowledge and prevention activities of osteoporosis. Therefore, it is necessary to develop education programs for the management of elderly osteoporosis and to raise importance awareness of elderly bone health among care providers in nursing home. Further studies are needed to evaluate the effects of the program.

  • Objectives: The purpose of this study is to garner useful information through a comparative analysis of health behaviors and health states between the young-old and old-old elderly in a rural Korean area. Methods: We define the young-old elderly as those 65 to 74 years of age, and the old-old as those over 70. The survey was administered in October and November of 2009 at senior citizen centers in Sangju City, Kyongsangbuk-do, South Korea. The number of subjects surveyed approximated the demographics of the aged population of the administrative district of centers of 24 eup, myeon, and dong. Results: Compared with the young-old elderly, the old-old were vulnerable to population sociological characteristics. While there were many cases of contraction of diseases, only a small percentage of old-old elderly were engaged in regular exercise. In addition, the old-old elderly lagged behind the young-old in terms of physical activity, mental and oral health, hearing, and vision. Conclusions: The vulnerability of the old-old elderly in terms of physical and mental health needs to be acknowledged as various characteristics of the elderly that appears according an age group. A variety of disease prevention and health promotion programs that focus on the health behavior and status of the young-old and old-old elderly need to be developed and put into practice.

  • 노인인구의 증가에 따라 노인성 질환이 증가하고, 대표적 노인성 질환직 하나인 치매도 점점 증가하고 있다. 이제까지 치매가 노화의 한 정상적인 과점으로 여겨져왔고 최근에 와서야 하나의 질병으로 인식하기 시작하였기 때문에, 그간 치매노인의 의료복지적 측면의 관리가 소홀하였고 가족의 어려움이 켰었다. 본 연구는 치매노인 시설을 이용하고 있는 치매노인 가족간호자를 대상으로 치매노인의 일상생활 기능손상정도 및 건강상태, 가족간호자의 간호부담정도, 사회적지지, 치매노인과 가족간호자의 삶의 질 정도, 그리고 그들이 어떤 사희복지적지지 서비스를 이용하려 하는 지를 파악하여, 앞으로의 치매노인과 그 가족간호자의 부함을 경감하고 삶의 질을 개선할 수 있는 대안마련의 기초자료를 제공할 목적으로 수행되었다.

  • 의학 기술의 발달로 인해 현 사회의 노령 인구가 급증하는 가운데 노화로 인한 노인들의 신체능력 및 인지능력의 저하가 전 세계의 사회적 문제로 자리 잡았다. 인지능력의 저하는 치매로까지 연결될 수 있어 초기에 관리를 하는 것이 매우 중요하며, 인지능력 향상을 목적으로 다양한 콘텐츠가 제작되고 있다. 최근 다양한 분야에서 콘텐츠들이 디지털화를 통해 효용을 높이고 있으나 노인을 위한 콘텐츠는 사용자의 특성상 디지털 콘텐츠로의 전환 및 활성화가 쉽지 않아 아날로그 콘텐츠가 현재까지도 일상 및 병원 치료활동에 주로 활용되고 있는 실정이다. 이에 현재 사용 중인 아날로그 콘텐츠의 사례분석을 통해 노인 콘텐츠의 특성을 파악하고 한계점을 도출해 노인 인지능력 향상을 위한 콘텐츠가 제공해야 하는 특성과 발전해나가야 할 방향성을 제시하고자 하였다. 본 연구는 노인 경도인지장애 개선을 위한 서비스디자인 가이드라인 개발을 위한 선행연구로 수행되었다.

  • 우리나라가 급속도로 고령화 사회로 진입하여 감에 따라 의료비 등 국민적 부담이 크게 증가하고 있는 추세에 있다. 본 논문에서는 노인들의 삶의 질을 제고하고, 국가적으로는 노인의료비 부담을 경감시킬 수 있는 노인케어 유비쿼터스 시스템 u-SCS(Ubiquitous Senior Care System)에 대하여 연구하였다. 본 u-SCS 시스템은 조도 센서에서 감지한 조도값의 차이를 분석하여 실내의 노인이 불을 끄고 켜고 한 정보를 파악한다. 이러한 점등 및 소등 시간에 대한 분석은 노인의 수면 시간 등 일상적인 노인 행동을 인지할 수 있는 정보이므로, 이를 기초로 노인들이 겪을 수 있는 건강상 문제나 일상 생활의 불편함을 해소하는데 중요한 기초 정보로 활용할 수 있다.

  • 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.

  • Despite a growing trend in elder mistreatment, research about the problem and its effects on the victims has been sparse. Notably missing are the perspectives of older adults themselves, whose perceptions and responses to elder mistreatment are greatly affected by social and cultural context. The purpose of this study is to examine factors associated with older persons' perceptions of elder mistreatment and subsequent help-seeking behaviors. Six hypothetical scenarios featuring elders were the basis of interviews with 124 older persons, drawn by a quota sampling strategy. Findings indicated that older persons perceived situations of physical abuse (87.9%), financial abuse (86.3%), and psychological abuse (66.1%) to be elder mistreatment, yet respondents showed less sensitivity to elder mistreatment that took the form of physical mistreatment within a couple (47.6%), neglect (40.3%), and self-neglect (16.9%). Certain scenarios yielded less intention to seek help: namely, physical mistreatment within a couple, neglect, and self-neglect. Older persons' personal characteristics, social factors, and cultural factors exerted significant influence on both perception and help-seeking behavior. Perception was identified as a key factor that significantly influenced help-seeking behavior. Findings point to awareness of cultural and social context for success in elder mistreatment prevention, intervention, and policy design for this population.
