Book Description :

By 2030, nearly 20% of the U.S. population will be ages 65 or older, and the fastest growing segment among them will be people ages 85 or older. Individuals in this oldest age group have the highest rates of health care utilization, morbidity, and disability. To support productive aging and continued participation, older adults must remain engaged in their desired roles and routines, daily activities, and occupations. This Practice Guideline provides an overview of the occupational therapy process in productive aging, defining the domain and interventions that occur within acceptable practice. It provides evidence for interventions with IADLs, fall prevention and home modification, health management and maintenance, and occupational engagement and health outcomes. This Practice Guideline will help occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants, as well as the individuals who manage, reimburse, or set policy regarding occupational therapy services, understand the contribution of occupational therapy services to facilitate productive aging for community-dwelling older adults.

Book Description :

Provide effective support and sensitive care for the most vulnerable segment of the elderly population--those with mental impairment--with the helpful methods and practical strategies outlined in this invaluable new book. Because of the increasing number of older persons with memory impairments, mental health problems, and Alzheimer's disease, it is clear that interventions to delay the loss of function in mentally impaired older adults are desperately needed. The Mentally Impaired Elderly offers optimistic guidelines for caregivers of the mentally impaired elderly and demonstrates through the use of theoretical models, research, and clinical evidence that persons with dementia can participate in activities and family life longer than previously thought. Interventions are demonstrated for maintaining the function level of the mentally impaired elderly by focusing on controlling the environment to increase the patients self-care ability, resulting in lower care costs and an improved level of mental health for the patient. Beginning with the description of a theoretical model, this helpful volume provides a framework on which to base work with the mentally impaired elderly and to offer hope and encouragement to those involved with the task of caring for older persons. Important research is emphasized, including the role of temporal adaptation in self-care, the relationship between apraxia and dressing skills, and a positive view of efforts to enrich the daily lives of institutional residents using program enhancement. Those who care for mentally impaired elderly adults in the home, as well as gerontologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, nurses, social workers, psychologists, and therapeutic recreation specialists, will greatly benefit from the helpful strategies outlined in this volume.

Book Description :

This book focuses on evidence-based occupational therapy in the care of older adults in different clinical settings, from home to acute hospital, from intensive care unit to rehabilitation centers and nursing homes. Occupational therapy has progressively developed as a new discipline aiming to improve the daily life of individuals of different ages, from children to older adults. The book first reviews the interaction between occupational therapy and geriatrics and then discusses in depth how occupational therapy interventions are applied in the community, in the acute hospital and in the nursing home. It highlights the key role of occupational therapy in the management of frail patients, including critically ill older patients and persons with dementia, and describes in detail how to maintain occupational therapy interventions across different settings to avoid the fragmentation of care. The ageing population requires new innovative approaches to improve the quality of life, and as such this book provides clinicians with handy, key information on how to implement occupational therapy in the daily clinical care of older adults based on the current scientific evidence.

Book Description :

Communication and Swallow Changes in Healthy Aging Adults compiles and presents the available research on healthy aging adults’ performance and abilities in the following areas: auditory comprehension, reading comprehension, speaking, writing, voice and motor speech abilities, cognition, and swallowing. This text also presents principles from the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health and its applications to aging adults. One of the first texts to cover these principles, this book will address the need for a comprehensive view of communication and swallow issues in aging for students of speech-language pathology. Speech-language pathologist students will learn how to fully compare what would be considered normal for their elderly patients rather than overestimating or underestimating what aging adults are capable of doing. Knowing what would be considered within the spectrum of normal, will help speech-language pathologists to address therapy as effectively as possible. Having this information at hand is particularly important as the nation’s population is aging at a rapid rate and there is a need for evidence-based practice in speech-language pathology. Written in an easy to follow format, Communication and Swallow Changes in Healthy Aging Adults includes original research data, discussion questions and a list of Quick Facts at the end of each chapter to summarize key points. This text will serve as a useful resource as students see elderly clients in on-campus speech and hearing clinics and when they intern at hospitals and long-term care facilities. Instructor Resources: PowerPoint Slides and an Image Bank Testimonial: “Communication and Swallowing Changes in Healthy Aging Adults is a handy text, portable, and logically organized. The information is easy to follow complimented by information presented in tables/charts. This text would be helpful to a practicing therapist when making a differential diagnosis between a normal vs. atypical aging process. Communication and Swallowing Changes in Healthy Aging Adults would be an appropriate text for courses in Communications Disorders Departments for graduate students in a neuro course or a neurogenic communication disorders course, and in lifespan development courses as in the field of Psychology and Gerontology.” ~ Susan Durnford, M.S.,CCC-SLP, Clinical Assistant Professor, Department of Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology, Ithaca College

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

GET BOOK

Book Description :

The U.S. population is aging, and occupational therapy practitioners working with older adults must have the skills to address multiple health issues, including vision loss. Although typical aging does not cause low vision, four major causes of vision impairment are directly related to the aging process: (1) age-related macular degeneration (AMD), (2) diabetic retinopathy, (3) glaucoma, and (4) cataracts. Instances of these impairments are expected to double by the year 2050, making low vision a significant public health issue. This Practice Guideline includes occupational therapy assessment and intervention guidelines for older adults who have visual acuity impairments, visual field impairments, or both as a result of a low vision diagnosis. Screening, referral, and evaluation are covered for clients for central visual field impairments, such as AMD and cataract; peripheral field impairments, such as glaucoma, hemianopsia, and quadrantanopsia; and mixed visual field loss, such as diabetic retinopathy. This work can help occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants, as well as individuals who manage, reimburse, or set policy regarding occupational therapy services, understand the contribution of occupational therapy to treating older adults with low vision. Appendixes include selected diagnostic and billing codes and evidence tables.

Book Description :

Productive Aging: An Occupational Perspective is a concise and practical text that takes a fresh look at our rapidly expanding and diverse older population. Recognizing the unique identity of each older person, this text provides client-centered guidelines for maximizing function, independence, and wellness. Productive Aging also outlines self-management strategies for promoting participation and engagement in productive occupations for the older persons' own continuing development, health, and well-being. Productive Aging not only summarizes current evidence, but it looks into the lives of forty productive agers who shared their personal perspective with the authors as part of an original qualitative study. These participant stories, often told in the participants own words, describe how current theories of aging are applied in the lives of older adults who are currently living the experience. Older adults ages 60 to 98 describe the effective strategies they used to manage their own aging process, to structure healthy lifestyles and social connections, and to intentionally direct their own productive occupations in satisfying and meaningful ways. The results of this qualitative research study have led to a grounded theory of Conditional Independence, which guides occupational therapy approaches to productive aging in practice. Authors Marilyn B. Cole and Dr. Karen C. Macdonald explore the six productive occupations that researchers have identified as typical of older adults today: self-management, home management, volunteering, paid work, care giving, and lifelong learning. In addition to summarizing current research and theories within each occupation, concrete strategies and techniques relative to these roles are detailed, with multiple examples, case studies, and learning activities. Throughout Productive Aging, interviews with experienced practitioners, administrators, and educators reveal some of the implications of various trends and techniques. For occupational therapists, descriptions of settings and types of intervention are consistent with the latest version of AOTA's Occupational Therapy Practice Framework, Third Edition. In addition to promoting productive occupations within traditional institutional and medical-based practice, occupational therapy roles include that of consultant, educator, and advocate when treating individuals, groups, and populations in home care, organizational, and community settings. Special attention is given to developing the ability to become an effective self-manager, facilitating social participation, and maximizing clients' applied functional abilities. Productive Aging: An Occupational Perspective is the perfect addition to the bookshelf of occupational therapy students, faculty, and clinicians, as well as any health care practitioner who would like to update his or her knowledge of the aging individual within his or her current practice settings.
