  • Development for fall risk assessment methods based on the interaction between physical and psychological aspects


    Project Year:2019.04 - 2022.03 

  • Proposal of a program to prevent the need for long-term care of community-dwelling elderly people based on a seminar they attend


    Project Year:2013.04 - 2017.03 


    The purpose of this study was to propose a new support method to construct a care-need prevention program that the community-dwelling elderly can voluntarily practice, depending on regional characteristics of the inter-mountainous and metropolitan areas where the numbers of elderly people are increasing. The methods of this study were to propose new programs to utilize for the prevention of care needs and the salon activities of social welfare councils, and to motivate their voluntary activities related to care prevention, through seminar study meetings with elderly people who were active in residential areas as students. According to the research results, supporting the activities of active elderly people as leaders would have a positive effect on health conditions related to care-need prevention for the whole area. On the other hand, it was suggested that this situation differs between inter-mountainous and metropolitan areas.

    In this study, we could achieve the following purpose: (i) determined the reference values in five physical performance tests (5m walking time at comfortable pace, 5m walking time at maximum pace, timed up and go test, 5 repetition chair stand test and grip strength) for community-dwelling older people; (ii) developed the assessment system for judgement in physical performance test based on the reference values which was determined by this study; (iii) established the evidence for the association between functional decline in older people and judgment outcome by the assessment system. Through this study, we could develop the easy assessment system for judgement in physical performance tests for community-dwelling older people. Further, we showed that a judgment outcome by the assessment system could predict functional decline in older people; that fact indicated the usefulness of the assessment system which was developed in this study.

    The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of a preventive care program based on community empowerment.
    (1) We conducted a preventive care program for healthy elderly living in the two areas. One is defined as empowerment group, we conducted the empowerment program.In another, we conducted a traditional lecture program as a control group. (2) We have conducted a questionnaire survey as a pre- and post-follow-up survey.(3) We found a positive effect from the post survey that participation in community activities had increased significantly in the empowerment group.(4) Voluntary activity group has occurred in both groups after the intervention. We found a positive effect that continuation rate of voluntary activity group has significantly higher in empowerment group.
    It has been revealed by this study that preventive care program based on community empowerment is contributing to the continual preventive care activities and expansion of community activities of the elderly.

  • The effect of approaches to enhance the empowerment of residents in elderly rental housing on stimulating cooperation.


    Project Year:2011 - 2013 

    ,  Member: SHIBA YOSHITAKA, OBUCHI Shuichi, KAMIDE Naoto, KAWAMURA Akie, MURAYAMA Norio, SATO Haruhiko

    We carried out an approach to enhance the empowerment of residents in 2 elderly rental housings with supportive services within the urban area. As a result we found the Mental Status Questionnaire (MSQ) score, which is a parameter for cognitive function, of the intervention residents was significantly higher than the non-intervention residents. There were no significant differences in other parameters.
    Again, there were no significant differences in all of the residents' characteristics, psychological characteristics, social support network, social participation, etc. at the 1 year and 6 months before and after. One of the reasons to be inferred was the fact that close to 20% of the residents relocate within a year may be affecting the results.
