ABSTRACT

Objectives : The purpose of this study was to investigate the image toward the elderly among dental hygiene students. Methods : The subjects were 348 college students. A self-reported questionnaire was filled out by the students from May 15 to June 15, 2013. The questionnaire included general characteristics of the elderly people and image toward the elderly. Results : As for the elderly people-related general characteristics of the students, 79.9 percent of the students had never received education on the elderly. Approximately more than half of the students replied that they lived with elderly people and gave positive answers to living with elderly people out of filial duty and respect for the elderly. They got a mean of 79.78±10.60out of 140 in image toward the elderly. Those who believe in religion and have more siblings tended to have a positive image toward the elderly people. Conclusions : In order to have a positive image toward the elderly people, volunteer activity for the elderly people in senior welfare centers can make the students more positive to the elderly people.
