Diets high in fat increase the risks for obesity and chronic diseases, even for older adults, the largest growing population in the United States. In the current study, a meta-analysis was performed to examine the effects of motivational interviewing (MI) dietary interventions on fat consumption in older adults. Electronic databases, journals, and unpublished literature were searched. Six primary studies were retrieved, providing seven comparisons between intervention and control groups and a total of 1,351 participants...

Howard K Butcher, Todd N Ingram
Suicide is a tragic, traumatic loss, and one of the most emotionally devastating events families, friends, and communities experience. Suicide claims more than 800,000 lives every year, and some of the highest rates of suicide in the United States and globally are among older adults. The purpose of this evidence-based guideline is to help health care providers recognize those at risk for suicide and recommend appropriate and effective secondary suicide prevention interventions. The information in this guideline is intended for health care providers who work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, out-patient clinics, mental health clinics, home health care, and other long-term care facilities...

Falls in community-dwelling older adults are a complicated phenomenon that are attributed to sociodemographic characteristics, health conditions, functional problems, and environmental factors. The current cross-sectional and correlational study aimed to explore comprehensive risk factors for falls in community-dwelling older adults using a nationally representative data file (N = 5,930). Descriptive statistics were used and multiple logistic regression analyses were performed. Study findings showed that homebound or semi-homebound older adults were 50% more likely to experience a fall than non-homebound individuals...

Physical activity may decrease the risk of dementia; however, conflicting findings exist. The purpose of the current meta-analysis was to investigate the relationship between physical activity and dementia risk based on physical activity type, amount, and intensity, and to propose an effective minimal physical activity amount for older adults. Forty-four studies were selected for the meta-analysis. Participation in high (a total of >2 hours of activity over the course of three sessions per week) and moderate (a total of >1 hour of activity over the course of two sessions per week) amounts of physical activity showed decreased dementia risks compared to physical inactivity...

Inhaler administration for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) can be challenging, as it requires correct recall and execution of multiple steps. Older adults may have a higher risk of incorrectly administering inhalers versus the general population due to age-related visual, cognitive, and functional impairments. The Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) 2018 report states that in addition to advanced age, use of multiple inhalers and lack of previous inhaler education can negatively impact technique...

Identifying older adults with heart failure at risk for hospital readmission is challenging, and risk prediction models may be improved with inclusion of telehealth factors. In the current study, demographic, clinical, telehealth, and use data for emergency department (ED) presentations, hospitalizations, and length of stay (LOS) were collected from the records of 187 Veterans with heart failure participating in a 90-day Care Coordination Home Telehealth program between September 2007 and September 2013. Heart failure-related ED visits were 17...

Kyoung Ja Moon, Heeok Park
A 6-month prospective cohort study was performed in patients with or without dementia admitted to two Korean long-term care (LTC) facilities. Participants were categorized into four groups: (a) no delirium or dementia, (b) dementia only, (c) delirium only, and (d) delirium superimposed on dementia (DSD). Delirium incidence, mortality, readmission, discharge placement, length of stay, and other associated factors were evaluated. The incidence of delirium was 48%. The largest number of patients belonged to the DSD group; outcomes associated with delirium were analyzed as covariates...

Acutely ill patients may have trouble communicating their symptoms and needs verbally. The current study evaluated the usability and acceptability of six commercially available communication tools with older adults in a non-clinical, controlled setting. Participants evaluated various communication boards and communication applications (apps) by using the tools to communicate needs and symptoms in various scenarios. Participants completed a modified technology acceptance questionnaire and selected the tool they perceived as most useful and easy to use...

Older adults are vulnerable to falls that result in injury and disability, making fall prevention a national priority. The purpose of the current study was to evaluate community-dwelling older adults' perceptions about falls and fall prevention activities to guide interventions. Participants had high awareness of falls and believed that they could reduce their risk of falling. Approximately three fourths of participants reported taking actions to reduce risk of falling; however, participation in community fall prevention programs was low...

Hearing loss (HL) becomes increasingly common with age and can lead to multiple negative outcomes, including isolation, falls, depression, altered social relationships, and altered cognitive functioning. HL also can affect patient-provider communication and lead to misunderstandings. Despite the negative effects that HL has on multiple domains, less than 20% to 25% of individuals who might benefit from amplification devices and/or hearing aids own them. Barriers to use include stigma, cost, and access. Nurses can play a critical role in promoting appropriate care for individuals with HL and providing access for those who need hearing aids...

The current integrative literature review explored the impact of interactive delirium care education in facilitating knowledge transfer to health care practitioners and improving health outcomes for older adults. Academic databases, including MEDLINE, CINAHL, and Web of Science, were searched using the terms delirium and simulation or interactive education. Selected articles were analyzed using Critical Appraisals Skills Programme tools. Twenty studies were reviewed and three themes generated to explain the current understanding of the impact of interactive delirium care education on outcomes for: (a) individuals with delirium; (b) organizational health care; and (c) health care practitioners...

The need to provide evidence-based, person-centered care for long-term care (LTC) residents, which often include individuals with dementia, has led to a surge of interest in the implementation of individualized music (IM) programs. An exploratory study was conducted over a 6-month period using the Promoting Action on Research in Health Systems (PARiHS) framework to examine the implementation of an IM program with 19 residents in a LTC facility. All residents using IM had the device available at the end of the program, and 53% received IM at least two times per week...

Nighttime agitation, sleep disturbances, and urinary incontinence (UI) occur frequently in individuals with dementia and can add additional burden to family caregivers, although the co-occurrence of these symptoms is not well understood. The purpose of the current study was to determine the feasibility and acceptability of using passive body sensors in community-dwelling individuals with Alzheimer's disease (AD) by family caregivers and the correlates among these distressing symptoms. A single-group, descriptive design with convenience sampling of participants with AD and their family caregivers was undertaken to address the study aims...
