Selbstständige Lebensführung von zu Hause lebenden älteren Menschen unter besonderer Berücksichtigung der Lebensformen. Eine explorative Querschnittsstudie

Aktuell liegen in Österreich keine ausreichenden Daten zum Grad der Unabhängigkeit in den Basisaktivitäten des täglichen Lebens bzw. zur Pflegebedürftigkeit von zu Hause lebenden Menschen vor, um den Beratungsbedarf zur Unterstützung eines selbstständigen Lebens abzuleiten. Aufgrund von veränderten Familienstrukturen wurde in der explorativen Querschnittstudie der Frage nachgegangen, „Welche Unterschiede zeigen sich zwischen den Lebensformen alleine vs. nicht alleine zu Hause lebende 70+ jährige Menschen in der funktionalen Gesundheit?“. Ein pflegerisches Assessment unter Einbeziehung aller gemäß ICF-Klassifikation fünf beeinflussender Gesundheitskomponenten diente zur Erfassung einer selbstständigen Lebensführung.

Abstract
Currently, the data available regarding the level of independence in the basic activities of daily living and the need for long-term care in people living at home in Austria are not sufficient to derive the need for counselling required to support independent living.
