Abstract: "本研究主要在了解失能老人的各種資源、居住安排、決定掌控力與生活品質之間的關係。以訪員親自面訪之方式蒐集資料,總計訪問有效問卷324份,其中社區老人(現非住機構者)199位,機構老人125位。『失能老人』係指至少有一項日常生活活動量表(ADL)或輔助性日常生活活動功能(IADL)需要他人協助者。『機構』的抽樣涵蓋安養、養護及護理之家等設施;『社區』失能老人則以現居住在社區家裡,申請使用居家服務的個案和身心障礙者名冊中去抽樣。
The purpose of this study intended to examine the effect of various resources, living arrangement, and locus of control of living arrangement on quality of life among disabled elderly.Survey research with face to face interview was employed. Feelings and experiences of 324 disabled older persons using structured questionnaires were collected. All of them were cognitively clear and could communicate. Among these subjects, 125 were living in the institutions for disabled elderly, while 199 living in their own homes.The findings indicated that some personal resources in terms of socio-demographic characteristics and health resources, economic resources, family resources as well as social resources did have influences on quality of life. In addition to resources, locus of control on living arrangement and living arrangement also had their effects. More to the point, the disabled elderly who were younger, were healthier, had more income, spent less care expense, had more frequent interactions with adult children, used more informal resources, lived in the community, had larger locus of control, had higher quality of life. The findings support the predictions generated from our research framework. Finally, practice and policy implications are discussed.
