ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to explore the necessity and limitations of dementia exercise rehabilitation experts in the domestic dementia relief center. In recent years, the dementia relief center is expanding, and according to several previous studies, it is effective to apply exercise to the dementia risk group and early dementia patients. However, there are currently no experts in dementia exercise rehabilitation with in the domestic dementia relief center, and alternatives are being used to replace them. So we conducted research based on this. We conducted the study using two methods. The first is an analysis of 5 previous studies, and the second is to conduct interviews with three domestic dementia relief centers. First, the main contents of the 5 previous studies are the effect of exercise on dementia, the current status of the dementia relief center, and the necessity of a dementia exercise instructor in the dementia relief center. Based on this, interviews were conducted on three domestic dementia relief centers, and the contents of programs, instructors, certifications, participation rates, and facilities within the dementia relief center were found. In conclusion, we could know the necessity of a dementia exercise rehabilitation expert in the dementia relief center, and for this, it is necessary to establish a certificate of a dementia exercise rehabilitation specialist, a new professional training course, and a new professional educational institution.
