The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between QoL and physical performance/fitness in older Koreans.
The elderly are the fastest growing segment of the population in Taiwan. However, limited studies have been conducted to explore the relationships between physical activities and quality of life among community-dwelling elderly in Taiwan.


The Quality of Life Project for Older People in Daily Living Home Care is a project of the MOVI Program, which was developed by the School of Sports Sciences, Universidad Nacional, Costa Rica.

The project is focused on increasing the Quality of Life (QOL) and preventing the pathological aging of the older people who spend part of the day in a Living Home Care using physical activity and physical exercises to pursue better QOL.

The Project has about 70 older participants who receive physical activity and physical exercises 1 day a week for an hour and a half. Once in a while, the Project does workshops about healthy lifestyles, and it gives the opportunity to the students of the Universidad Nacional to increase their skills to work with this population.
