ABSTRACT

Although there are a lot of social problems triggered by the growing elderly population, the countermeasures that have been taken to resolve these problems are often not down-to-earth enough. A wide range of welfare should be provided in line with an increase in the elderly population, but existing stereotyped welfare services rather result in putting senior citizens into the dead zone of welfare. Specifically, the importance of senior home care services is increasingly stressed in accordance with social changes such as the increase in the elderly population and a change in the way of looking at maintenance obligations, and senior citizens who live in their own homes are actually in need of various welfare services. Nonetheless, it's not yet easy to keep track of their needs to offer appropriate services. The services provided by senior home care centers are largely divided into two. One is to offer services in their homes, and the other is to let them benefit from the services by living in an institution. As some of elderly people to whom home care services are provided stay at home, stricter management and supervision are required, and senior home care centers should consequently be under more professional and closer supervision. In fact, however, there is room for improvement in terms of the management system of human and material resources in these centers, which are under the control of the national or local governments as one of social welfare facilities. The discreet management and supervision of both human and material resources for senior home care centers are quite important, and a more systemized home care service system should be built.
