Abstract: 米国の高齢者施設の運営システムの違いと特徴について、海外研修における米国高齢者施設訪問で得られた知見を紹介する。訪問した3施設は、それぞれ現在の米国の高齢者施設の現状を反映した特徴を示していた。それらの3施設は、認知症高齢者を対象としたメモリーサポートを目的とした中間的療養施設、自立生活が可能な高齢者を対象に軽度の介護とアクティビティーなどのサービスを提供する生活支援施設、各種の高齢者用施設を集約したCCRC(Continuing Care Retirement Community)であった。理論に基づいた各種の療法によって個々の高齢者のQOLの維持を目指すだけでなく、高齢者のコミュニティーを育て総合的な高齢者介護システムの構築を進めている米国の現状を知ることができた。
Overseas training was conducted on the differences and distinctive features of management systems in elderly care facilities in the United States, and an overview is given of the findings obtained through visits to such facilities in that country. The results were as follows : Three facilities that were visited displayed distinctive features reflecting the current situations in those facilities. The three facilities were (1) an intermediate care nursing home providing memory support for elderly dementia patients, (2) an assisted living facility providing light nursing, activities, and other such services for elderly people who ware capable of living independently, and (3) a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) that combines the various kinds of facilities for elderly people. The study tour provided insights into the current situation in the United States, which is not seeking simple to maintain quality of life for individual elderly people by means of theory-based treatment, but is working to foster communities of elderly people and build comprehensive extended care systems for them.
