Profils d’autonomie et de dépendance(s) des résidents en établissement médico-social. Approche multidimensionnelle – Enquête Handicap-Santé – volet Institutions (HSI 2009)

Abstract : Elderly persons have made up a sharply increasing percentage of the overall population during the second half of the twentieth century. This transformation in the age pyramid in France has stimulated studies of living conditions for the elderly. The article re-examines the measures produced by conventionally used dependency indicators. Multivariate analysis describes different personal profiles according to their degree of autonomy in carrying out daily activities and compares them to the usual indicators measuring dependency (Colvez, Katz, AGGIR). While these indicators are able to clearly identify states of great dependency, they fail to identify situations of more or less moderate dependency involving a population whose disability characteristics are very heterogeneous. The article then examines the characteristics of “relatively” autonomous persons living in institutions. The field of study is that of individuals aged 50 or older in institutions for the elderly and for disabled adults, and the data source is the Institutions component of the Disability-Health Survey by the DREES and INSEE in 2009.
