This exciting book includes an overviw of possibilities for the very frail person who might otherwise require an institutional setting. Other topics include management of the diabetic in the community, the sexual needs of older adults, crucial components to successful community living for anyone with a health impairment, and the timely and personal topic of coping with the death of a patient.

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.

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.

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 :

Aging in the Designed Environment is the key sourcebook for physical and occupational therapists developing and implementing environmental designs for the aging. The physical environment remains one of the most overlooked areas in environmental design. In order to move beyond this status quo, persons responsible for planning elderly environments must develop a new understanding of ways in which their influence can improve the older adult¿s physical and mental functioning. Occupational and physical therapists, as well as other health care professionals, will benefit tremendously from the information presented in this unique volume. Designers, developers, and others with minimal health care background will also find a wealth of possibilities within Aging in the Designed Environment. Many concerns are dealt with in the book¿s five sections. The first section describes the implications that occur when there are changes in vision, hearing, taste, smell, touch, and the kinesthetic systems. Recommendations for environmental adaptation and modifications which may compensate for the changes in each of these systems are suggested. The second section stresses the relationship between behavior and environment. A variety of environmental attributes--comfort, privacy, accessibility, control, security, dignity--and their impacts are discussed, along with information on ways that attributes can be incorporated into the living settings of older people. In section three the focus is on the older person living independently in his or her own home, and section four covers exclusively the design and selection of chairs for older adults. New ways to assess and evaluate the home to promote independence beyond the traditional activities of daily living are addressed. The last section deals with redesigning the existing long-term care facility. The author examines some of the environmental conditions existing in specific facilities and provides recommendations to compensate for these circumstances.
