MEASURING THE SATISFACTION LEVEL OF THE CIRCULATION ELEMENTS IN NURSING HOME GARDENS Emine TARAKCİ EREN1 , Mustafa VAR2 , Sema MUMCU3 ABSTRACT Nursing homes are social service organizations that protect, care and meet the physical, social and psychological needs of elderly people aged 60 and over in a peaceful environment and operate under the Republic of Turkey Ministry of Family and Social Policies. Institutional care services are provided to protect and maintain the physical and mental health of the elderly individuals, to make these individuals comfortable, to improve their social relations and to facilitate a healthy, peaceful and safe life for them. According to the provisions of the Regulation, institutional care is aimed to provide care for the elderly aged 60 and over, who are not confined to bed, who do not require continuous medical treatment and for those who are able to meet their daily needs on their own (SSCPA, Social Services and Child Protection Agency, 1985). The most critical approach in nursing homes designed for the elderly is to provide elderly individuals the feeling of being “at home” and to establish healthy indoor and outdoor environments that meet the physiological, psychological and socio-economic needs of the elderly individuals. Besides all the landscape elements in the gardens, the circulation elements should therefore take into account the physiological and psychological needs of the elderly individuals, so that these elements could be used comfortably. In this study, it was aimed to determine the level of satisfaction of the residents of the seven nursing homes in the Eastern Black Sea Region regarding the circulation elements in the nursing home gardens.
