Book Description :

Changing demographics have resulted in the elderly constituting a more significant proportion of the population. Many older people will develop functional impairment and disability, necessitating either support at home or admission to long-term care facilities, rehabilitation centers, psychiatric institutions and hospices. Guidance in the clinical challenges that face the staff of such institutions is essential. Clinical practice guidelines dealing with many of the prevalent conditions in long-term care facilities have been published by the American Medical Directors Association; these aim to educate staff, improve patient outcomes, decrease avoidable transfers and reduce costs. Yet, guidelines do not cater methodically to problems resulting from the complex situations seen in older patients with multiple comorbidities. Textbooks are also often deficient in providing a focused approach to conditions and issues that are of importance in geriatric long-term care. The present manuscript (Volumes I and II) focuses on case management in geriatric long-term care. Concise recommendations are provided, addressing diagnostic issues and management strategies. We have adopted an approach of dividing recommendations into do and do not categories in order to guide physicians and nurses in their approach to conditions encountered frequently, to help them recognize red flag signals, and to highlight significant unusual situations. When fine-tuning of management is indicated, the text goes into specifics, such as details on nutrition, pharmacology, medication dosing, therapeutic procedures, and the recognition of adverse events. Recent progress, shifting evidence, controversial issues and uncertainties are pinpointed. Expert advice is provided. It is hoped that this book might prove to be a worthy contribution to the medical field, enriching doctors and nurses committed to long-term geriatric care.

Book Description :

As we move through life many of us find ourselves needing to help a family member or friend with a medical condition. If the condition is temporary, our need to help is temporary. However, chronic conditions such as Alzheimer's and other dementias require longer-term, possibly ever-increasing assistance. Problems with thinking and memory lead to new, different, and often challenging behaviors. In addition, caring for someone with Alzheimer's often means helping them deal with other medical problems that are often difficult to recognize. This book is a resource for caregivers of people with Alzheimer's or dementia who are also beginning to experience non-memory-related medical conditions. It addresses 54 medical conditions that caregivers often must deal with when providing care. Each medical condition is addressed in an easy-to-follow, two-page guide that provides basic facts about the medical condition, signs that indicate a possible emergency, tips on providing relief in the home, other related issues to watch out for, and safety tips for the caregiver. Written by experts at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University, this book is based on the latest clinical knowledge and scientific research on Alzheimer's and the care of Alzheimer's and dementia patients. It includes basic facts about Alzheimer's disease and other dementias and practical guidance when conferring with doctors and nurses, when visiting hospitals, nursing homes, and assisted-living residences, and during the dying process. Also, an entire chapter is devoted to what caregivers need to do to take care of themselves while helping someone with Alzheimer's and related dementia. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Arial}
