Effect of Individual Silverrobic Exercise on Activities of Daily Living, Powerlessness, and Self-esteem of Older Residents in Nursing Homes
Kim, Soo-Ok · Kim, Yu-Jeong
This study was done to investigate the effects of Individual Silverrobic Exercise on the activities of daily living, powerlessness, and self-esteem in older nursing home residents.
It was used for the pretestposttest design of a nonequivalent control group. Forty-eight older residents (23 for the experimental group and 25 for the control group) were conveniently recruited from two different nursing homes in one province. The residents of the experimental group performed the Individual Silverrobic Exercise every 50 minutes day, twice a week for 12 weeks. Data were collected by using self-report questionnaires about the dependant variables, and were analyzed using x2-test and t-test with SPSS/WIN.
The residents who practiced the Individual Silverrobic Exercise reported significantly high levels of daily living activities (t=4.87, p=.032) and self-esteem (t=14.95, p<.001) compared with those in the control group. In addition, the level of powerlessness was significantly low in the experimental group residents compared with residents in the control group (t=4.19, p=.046).
The study results indicate that an Individual Silverrobic Exercise has to be regularly provided to older residents in nursing homes to enhance their physical and psychological health.
