爱德华健康适老化住房改造规范的撰写工作正在进行中

Wed 17 May 2017

爱德华健康管理研究中心认识到确保居住环境的舒适度和安全性是非常重要的,因此,我们开始展开适老化改造最佳实践规范的研究工作。 这项研究的目的是识别家庭/养老院适老化改造的现行标准,并制定一份全面的适老化改造规范报告,详细说明当老人在入住新居或在居住期间健康情况发生变化时,应该对住房进行哪些改造工作。 研究范围包括所有需要考虑或必须实施的细微改造,以及更大规模的改造。该报告将介绍目前在英国最推荐的实施方案,以及推荐背后的理由。报告将重点介绍一般性老年护理的基础改造,例如跌倒预防。 报告还包括了目前在英国使用的针对患有特殊疾病老年人设计的一系列科技设备,例如远程医疗警报监护系统,以及智能设备等等。 通过开展案头研究,确定什么是目前适用于老年人的最佳住房改造方案,这将集合当前最先进的适老化改造研究成果。信息来源包括但不限于: • Age UK (英国一家关注老年护理的慈善机构) • Independent Age (英国“独居老人“慈善机构) • 英国住房协会 • 英国住房改造联盟机构 • 公民信息 • 英国特许环境卫生研究所(CIEH) • 英国全民医疗保健系统(NHS),地方政府和社会保障计划 • 英国职业治疗师学院 报告将包括: • 评估员用于评估个人住房的工作清单,包括: o 根据个人不同的健康情况给出针对性实施方案建议(例如,轮椅使用者,视力障碍者) o 需要测量/记录的家居物品和空间(例如,入口大厅:扩宽大门;移低门锁位置;安装点灯;斜坡通道等等) • 核对当前和推荐的作法,例如职业治疗师指南 • 适老化改造类型(例如结构性改变,生活辅助设备和配件) • 建议改造的住房区域(例如入口,厨房,走廊,楼梯,卧室,浴室等等) • 适老化改造评估指南,包括大规模改造及细微改造 … Continue reading
