Abstract


Objective: This study was conducted to provide basic data on physical function improvement activities of elderly care facilities by identifying the degree of physical improvement activities of elderly caregivers.

Design: Descriptive correlational study.

Methods: The instrument of this study consisted of 12 questions on the general characteristics of the subject. For the assessment of improvement in physical function activities, the measuring tool used for the elderly consisted of a total of 20 questions. For data analysis, Pearson’s correlation coefficient & Spearman’s rho and multiple regression were used.

Results: The higher the age of the subjects, the lower their educational background (r=?0.273, p<0.05), and the higher the probability of having a religion (r=?0.258, p<0.05), the more stable the employment type (r=?0.333, p<0.05). The higher the level of education, the higher the monthly income (r=0.187, p<0.01), and the shorter the career (r=?0.204, p<0.05). The more stable employment, the more unstable duty (r=?0.245, p<0.05), and the more unstable work, the higher the monthly income (r=?0.206, p<0.05) and the longer the career, the higher the monthly income (r=0.247, p<0.05). The more stable the employment, the more activities to improve physical function were found (r=0.341, p<0.05), and the more unstable the duty, the more activities to improve physical function were found (r=0.321, p<0.05), and the higher monthly income, the less physical function improvement activities (r=?0.196, p<0.05).

Conclusions: It is necessary to provide regular services by a dedicated physical therapist for physical function improvement activities in order to improve the quality of life of the elderly in the future.
