Abstract :

The main purpose was using the theory of relocation to investigate the relationships of relocated pressure, health status and life adaptation among new residents in long-term care institutions. This correlational study used a convenience sampling method to recruit 108 who resided institution least than a year from 11 Kaohsiung long-term care institutions. The questionnaire contained personal information, symptom checklist for relocated pressure and life adaptation scale. The SPSS/PC version 18.0 software was used for statistical analysis. The relocation and life adaptation was correlated with the following factors: economic status (p=0.006), payment source (p=0.026), residence status (p<0.001), residence time (p=0.004), morbidity (p<0.001), Barthel index scores (p<0.001), the number of relocated pressure (p<0.001), degrees of knowing institution (p=0.005), degrees of willing to be relocated (p<0.001) and decision ownership (p<0.001).The results can help care team understand the problems of life adaption for elderly├ó┬?┬?s relocation in advance and provide appropriate care in order to enhance life satisfaction and health promotion. The most important thing is to make individual live a meaningful and purposeful life in future.
