Providing Care and Medical Assistance to the Elderly

2021-12-01

Under a collaboration project of community medical centers and National Yang Ming University Hospital, teachers and students from NYCU Institute of Public Health, volunteers from Yang Ming Crusade club, Yilan City Hall, village chiefs in Yilan, directors of community development associations, community opinion leaders, corporations, and other organizations have conducted the comprehensive evaluation, and administration of a physio-psychological health questionnaire survey involving Yilan citizens older than 65 years. During the questionnaire’s administration, care and necessary support were provided to older adults who lived alone and had urgent needs. The results on community health conditions were compiled to facilitate the subsequent implementation of health care plans.

From the beginning of 2012 to the end of 2016, older adults from 38 villages in Yilan were interviewed. By December 2018, the project team had visited a total of 13,936 elderly adults, administering 4,589 questionnaires and physical examinations. After the elimination of erroneous data and data for interviewees who had moved or died, the interview completion rate was 41.8%. Additionally, the Yang Ming Crusade summer visit program has been held since 2012, marking its 11th anniversary this year. In addition to supporting the operation of the Healthy and Lively Yilan City Project, the program enables students to interact with the community and understand how to engage with the elderly and disadvantaged people. Accordingly, the program contributes to society by cultivating medical personnel in the community.
