Korea is entered to the aging society with 21C. Also it is forecast we will enter in aging society quickly. for 5 years there are some growth in facility at least 2∼3 times but our society needs more. But this quantitative growth is worried about less quality. That's why we needs more research about the facility for an geriatrics hospital.The people who suffered from senile disease needs more treatment days in the ward of geriatric hospital. so we have to consider about better condition in ward of geriatrics than in general. Better environment for eldery is included not only the ward space but also the corridor and the dayroom. This study which it performed to improve their habitability is researched on public space. and this reserch deal with general feature against a public space in the ward of geriatric, and investigate 2 facility for divede the the general feature of the space. and this investigate is recorded according to behavior of patients. It can find us which factor of the space is prefered by them.
Increase of aging population and demands for care and support systems, needs and demands for a variety of care services and housing facilities have increased. With the emergence of gerontechnology, tangible and intangible technologies and innovations have been explored and developed in many countries. Since housing environment is very important to define well-being and quality of life of the elderly, technology applications in the living environment are considered as important means. The purpose of this study is to enumerate and investigate technologies for the elderly to assist daily living and help care providers, and to explore technology applications in the built environments. This study also investigate how intelligent technologies are installed in the built environment and physical consideration for a variety of approaches. The content analysis was conducted to investigate technology developments for the elderly based on web materials and publication materials. The seven examples were chosen since they are seeking technologies especially for the elderly or aging-in place. General goals for the diffusion of intelligent homes expecially for the elderly are to be easy to install and remove, unobtrusive, redundant cueing, easy to use, and robust. The results of this study suggest application considerations for the technologies of the built environment for the elderly.
In Germany, community based daycare facilities has been supported by long term care policies since the 1970s. With the legislation of Care Insurance, those policy has been developed further. As the use of daycare facilities decreased and the financial burden for consumers increased, administrators of facilities has been seeking for innovative programs and management methods in order to improve the service. For the same reason, policy makers have been pursuing new regulations of architectural standards of facilities. By looking at legislations (i.e., Law of Care Insurance, Law of Heim, and DIN18025) that stipulate architectural standard of facilities in Germany, this study will identify the development process of architectural change of daycare facilities. In addition, the study aims to contribute to the discussion on the use of day care facilities in Korea in terms of the legislation of Care Insurance soon to be introduced.
The rehabilitation facilities for disabled people keeps going to grow with social changes that disabled people are dramatically increasing. This paper try to provide basic concept of the architectural planning for the disabled rehabilitation facilities. To accomplish this purpose this study has analyzed the behavior pattern of user with disabilities. This study has introduced the problem of using space in the rehabilitation and welfare facilities for the disabled and the architectural concept for resolve it. The architectural planning concept appears by barrier-free accessibility, safety for mobility and use, amenity integrated the spatial cognition and flexible structural system.
As we make every effort to improve our health, the needs and interests of the rehabilitation medicine is increasing. And as society gets more advanced and as the quality of life become higher, rehabilitation department will be important for general hospital and we need the certain guidelines about it. In this study, selected 8 general hospitals in the metropolitan area are analyzed by the analysis of drawings and comparison. The important architectural planning of rehabilitation department are the connection with orthopedics and neurosurgery and the position for convenience approach. Rehabilitation department has 0.63~1.07% of general hospital area. And the rehabilitation department is divided into four branches - medical service space, office space, public space and support space. As the number of programs in the rehabilitation department is increasing, the planning will be considered for the flexible use. And this study proposed the programs, necessary spaces, space composition and basic planning of "rehabilitation department".
