Characteristics of Interior Space and Planning for Elderly Day Care Center in Korea
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 21, issue 1, 2003, Pages 1~12
Day care center for the elderly is an alternative for community care for frail elderly who need social participation and physical cares and services outside the family. The purpose of this study was to identify the present situation of day care center for the elderly and to suggest desirable interior space plans for elderly day care center. Data were collected by two ways; a mail survey and case studies of existing day care centers. Five cases of day care centers were analyzed to find out Physical and space problems, available programs and services. Also, the staffs in 96 day care centers for the elderly in nationwide were selected for a mail survey and 68.8 percentage of all was collected and analyzed. From the result of case studies, narrow space and lack of accessibility features for wheelchair or other prosthetic devices were the major problems. From the result of a mail survey analysis, the elderly users were over 73 years old, and high proportion had suffered from dementia and apoplexy Also, staffing ration was 1:7 In other words, one staff was caring of 7 old people, and supporting staff was insufficient. Therefore, supportive, therapeutic environment Was more important issue to improve quality of care. Separate program room and outdoor space, lounging space, treatment room by gardening, separate counselling room, bedroom, a simple kitchen unit, staff office, separate physical treatment room, resting room for staff was indicated more necessarily. When priority of planning interior space was safety followed by accessability and convenience, it was also reported that sire of each room was generally narrow. The most serious problem in interior space was the lack and narrowness of space, and accessible features for mobility. Based on the literature review and the findings of this study, two types of floor plans for elderly day care center were suggested;‘a mixed type for the elderly with and without dementia’and‘a separate type for the elderly with dementia.’The main goals for designing interior space for two types of elderly day care center were to provide safe environment, encouraging environment for remaining abilities of users, sanitary environment, therapeutic environment, familiar environment, and socially-encouraging environment. The recommendations for further studies were suggested.
Review on the Problems in Using Adult Attachment Inventory as Spousal Attachment Inventory -Focusing on Hazan & Shaver' Adult Attachment Inventory-
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 21, issue 1, 2003, Pages 13~24
The purpose of this article Is to review the problems in using Hazan & Shaver,s adult attachment inventory as spousal attachment inventory. In summary, Hazan & Shaver's forced-choice inventory is required to caution in using for spouse attachment inventory because of the disproportionally higher secure-attachment type ratio(72% - 89%). It was previous reseaches that used multi-item Likert inventory instead of Hazan & shaver's forced-choice inventory for result analysis because of disproportionally higher secure-attachment type ratio. Although Hazan & shaver's forced-choice inventory was mostly used for young unmarried adults, Using Hazan & shaver's forced-choice inventory as spouse attachment inventory for married adults seem to be inappropriately. Hazan & Shaver's multi-item Likert inventory has the problem of poor reliability in insecure-avoidence factor especially. Hazan & Shaver's one item Likert inventory has the problem of social desirability.
A Study on the Implementation of an Educational Program for Caregivers
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 21, issue 1, 2003, Pages 25~36
This study was conducted to reconstitute a family life education program for caregivers and to analyze the system of implementation. Based largely on a pre-existing program for caregiving families, I developed a new educational program. Personal time management and personal needs management were added in the content of the program order to help enhance self-esteem and internal control. The reconstituted educational program, which consists of 6 sessions, was implemented on a small group of caregivers in Jeollabukdo Province who support their elderly parents. The effectiveness of the program was evaluated by a pre-test, a post-test, a follow-up test and open-questionnaire reports. The results from the post-test suggest that the program has been effective in improving the knowledge on aging process, internal control and self-esteem. But the follow-up test results show the program has been effective only in improving the knowledge on aging process. According to the open-questionnaire reports, the program seems to have been effective in improving interpersonal relationships and changing attitudes toward their elderly parents.

Exclusion of Housewives in the National Pension Plan in South Korea and Suggestions for Improvement
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 21, issue 1, 2003, Pages 61~72
This study examines the problematic fact that most housewives are excluded from receiving the benefits of the National Pension Plan in South Korea. The National Pension Plan assigns no value to housework or household production, which in turn discourages full-time housewives from participating voluntarily in the Plan. In this article, I propose to utilize Credit Splitting and Pension Sharing in order to take into account full-time housewives' economic contribution in the National Pension Plan. In this article, I also discuss the ranges and application methods of the Credit Splitting and Pension Sharing. For this study, I have analyzed the data of 11,967 unemployed married women living with spouses published in“Research Data on Everyday Life Time Usage”by the Korea National Statistical Office in 1999. The value of the full-time housewives' labor varies depending on the methods of estimation. However, all estimated values exceed the average value assigned to the housewives by the National Pension Corporation. It is clear that full-time housewives' unpaid labor contributes a great deal to the formation of household property and wealth, which is a valid reason for Pension Sharing and Credit Splitting. This article also provides logical factors to consider in the process of Pension Sharing and Credit Splitting, which can be used for developing computerized software to determine a full-time housewives' labor value at the time of divorce or for any other purpose.
