[Research Presentation] Purpose:   To compare health-related habits and need for long-term care services between the healthy elderly and the elderly with cancer in Korea. Methods:  Data from the Korean National Survey of long-term care need in the elderly compiled in 2004 were used. The subjects were 290 healthy elderly and 93 elderly with cancer who aged 65 or more. Main research variables were health related habits(smoking, drinking, health foods, and exercises) and need for long-term care services including nursing homes and home care services. SPSS version 14.0 for Windows was utilized for data analysis. Frequencies were calculated for study variables. To compare the variables between the two groups X2 test was used. Results:   Significant differences were found between the two groups in smoking, drinking, and health foods. 17.1% of the elderly with cancer smoked and 24.5% elderly drank. Of the healthy elderly, 33.2% intended to use nursing homes and 44.1% intended to use home care services. Whereas, 28.9% of the elderly with cancer  intended to use nursing homes and 46.5% intended to use home care services. Conclusion: Study findings will be useful to establish priorities in planning long-term care systems in the Korean elderly.
