Abstract :In order to raise the motivation for oral care in care institutions, we have carried out oral care in a special nursing home for the elderly in Niigata city since July 1999. This study reports on the conditions and effects of oral care, which was carried out between July 1999 and June 2000 in this institution. After supper once a week, 6-7 dentists performed mouth cleaning, removal and cleaning of dentures of 29 institutionalized elderly subjects (3 males and 26 females, average age: 87). The institutionalized elderly were cognitively impaired and their ADL (Ability of Daily Living) was remarkably declined. Functional training for food intake was also performed on tube-fed persons who were judged to be fit for direct training. The state of oral hygiene among the institutionalized elderly was improved. The number of respiratory infections during one year was decreased from 24 to 13. The cognitional status and food intake function were also improved. The oral care provided to the 29 subjects of our study by care workers of the institution was improved in the tube-fed subjects. However, no improvement was revealed in the oral-fed subjects.
