ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to understand the essential meaning of the experiences of using the shelter for abused victims among the abused elderly victims. The researchers collected the data from nine abused elderly victims who previously stayed or are currently staying in a shelter for abuse victims and analyzed them using Colaizzi’s method, as one of the phenomenological methods. Their experiences were classified into eight categories, such as “Standing at the End of Heartbreaking Life,” “Seeking Help out of a Hard Life,” “Starting a Strange Life with a Sad Heart,” “Living a Life of being Welcomed,” “Recognizing a Wound in Life,” “Becoming More Nervous as the Day of Discharge Approaches,” “Designing a New Life,” and “Living with Memories of the Shelter”. The essence of their experiences in using the shelter for abused victims based on the eight categories was found as “Rest and Preparation for a New Life.” Through the results of the study, the operation of a shelter dedicated to the abused elderly victims as well as a follow-up research were suggested.
