Chinese Abstract

本研究之主要目的在瞭解老年人的生活型態和生活品質之現況及相關性,並探討影響老年人生活品質的因素。資料取自「國民營養健康狀況變遷老人調查 1999-2000」,共1937位65歲以上的老人為研究對象。研究結果發現:老年人的健康狀況不錯。飲食攝取部份飯麵類、蔬菜類、水果類攝取最多,以因素分析法找出五種飲食型態:甜點糖類、健康飲食類、肉魚奶類、豆製品類、咖啡和蛋類,可以解釋老人飲食攝取50.11%之變異量。整體的身體活動量和睡眠品質中等;成癮行為不嚴重。生活品質在身體疼痛、社會功能最高;自覺健康、活力狀況最低。依集群分析將老年人的生活型態分為三個主要的族群,「飲食豐富」集群的老人飲食豐富,健康狀況較好,男性、年齡較輕、教育程度高、曾有工作者多、和配偶同住較多,經濟狀況和生活品質較好;「攝取少」集群的老人攝取較少,健康狀況較差,男女各半、年齡較長、教育程度較低、曾有工作者較少,和配偶同住者較少,經濟狀況和生活品質較差;而「好甜食」集群喜好吃甜食,人口學變項、健康狀況和生活品質皆介於兩個集群之間。而對生活品質有顯著預測力的因素為:人口學變項的男性、年齡較輕、教育程度高、有工作相對於從未工作、金錢較足夠的老年人,有較高的生活品質;健康狀況較好,生活品質較高;生活型態的健康飲食類攝取較多者,身體活動量較多、睡眠品質較好者,生活品質較佳。相關單位實行老年人生活品質提昇計劃應以健康狀況和生活型態為改善重點,且以女性、年齡較長、教育程度低、從未工作者和經濟狀況較差者為優先考量對象。
