 Abstract
The purpose of this study was to identify services and programs that will be needed for helping senior residents to be aging healthfully and comfortably in the university-based retirement community (UBRC). This study conducted a questionnaire survey targeting about 900 faculty and staff members in one of national universities. A total of 214 valid responses were analyzed for identifying necessary services and programs. The study also analyzed the differences in resident`s opinions depending on their intention to live in the UBRC. Over 65% of the respondents were willing to live in the UBRC. The most desirable services were healthcare services including emergency care and nursing care and cleaning and laundry services. Regarding the educational and recreational programs, future residents chose physical exercises such as swimming and tennis and music activities such as playing instruments and singing as the most interesting programs they want to experience in UBRC. Most of the respondents were interested in mentoring college students or international students who come to the university for their degrees. The findings from the study should provide a guideline when offering services, programs, and activities in the future UBRC in Korea.
