Caring for a person with dementia is challenging and has adverse health and mental health effects that, for 9-25% of caregivers persist into bereavement in the form of complicated grief (CG). For those bereaved dementia caregivers unable to satisfactorily process grief, specialized Complicated Grief Group Therapy (CGGT) can restore a healthy grief process. We investigated the progression of therapeutic change in CGGT participants (N = 16 in three treatment groups), using an adapted version of Meaning of Loss Codebook (MLC; Gillies et al...

While informal caregiving can be fundamental to disease management, the burden experienced by caregivers, including psychosocial, physical, and financial stress, cannot be overlooked. Moreover, studies suggest that higher levels of stressors may exist among ethnic minorities. In the US, Latinos are burdened with increasing rates of chronic conditions and have the highest uninsured rates in the country. Moreover, the rapid growth of the Latino community coupled with the aging of the population may place increased stress on the health care system, including health care providers and social workers, as well as informal caregivers, from whom Latinos with chronic conditions often receive support...

As of November 2016, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) classified nine ongoing conflicts as limited, eleven as significant, and six as critical in terms of their impact on the United States' interests. The CFR evaluated all of these conflicts as worsening or remaining unchanged. During the past few years, several conflicts have started, but few have been resolved. Ongoing conflicts and fear of persecution resulted in the forced displacement of millions of individuals in recent years. The population of forcibly displaced individuals rose to 65...

Hospice offers holistic support for individuals living with terminal illness and their caregivers. However, some individuals who enroll onto hospice services do not decline in health as quickly as determined by current regulations, termed a 'live discharge.' Persons with dementia are among those who experience a live discharge due to the slow physical decline associated with the disease. When a live discharge occurs, it affects not only the patient but also the caregiver(s). There is very little data on the outcomes of persons who experience a live discharge and even less on their caretakers...

Of the myriad challenges that the new administration and 115th Congress will face, one of the most pressing will be establishing a sustainable long-term services and supports (LTSS) system responsive to the aging US population. Currently, the majority of LTSS is paid for with Medicaid and other public programs; an additional and sizeable burden falls on unpaid caregivers. Individuals generally have unrealistic expectations about their likelihood of needing LTSS and a minority of adults have made any concrete plans for their own care...

This study describes intergenerational care perceptions in a resource-challenged community. Ten women (aged 60+) and eight middle adolescents (3 boys and 5 girls) participated in the Mmogo-method®, a visual data-collection method. Textual data were analyzed thematically and visual data by applying steps proposed by Roos and Redelinghuys (2016). Findings confirmed that both groups provided physical and instrumental care to the other. Older women also cared for adolescents by teaching and disciplining them, while the adolescents cared for older people by obtaining an education and by showing respect...

Physical activity is important for health, well-being, and life satisfaction of older adults. However, little is known about how the environment influences physical activity among residents in assisted living. The purpose of this study was to examine factors that influence physical activity among residents in assisted living. This was a secondary data analysis using baseline data from an intervention study testing the impact of function focused care in assisted living. A total of 171 residents from four assisted living facilities were included...

Australia, like all developed western countries, is experiencing a demographic shift resulting in an increasing proportion of the population being over the age of 65 years. Contrary to stereotypes, the vast majority of older people live independently in communities. This paper explores the potential of social work practice informed by community development principles to enable socially disadvantaged older women to live in vibrant and supportive communities, in which they feel safe and are able to access the support services they need...

Many disciplines are focusing on long term care policy changes that have implemented additional informed choices and control options for individuals' self-management of care services. This paper explores trends in how Scottish policy of The Social Care (Self-Directed Support) (Scotland) Act 2013 may influence older people's informed choices for care decisions and implications this has for direct practice situations. The paper discusses perspectives from 18 professionals and front line care workers interviewed in Scotland on recent Self Directed Support policy changes regarding older people with daily care needs...

Anao Zhang, Yuri Jang
The present study examined how internal health locus of control is associated with older adults' self-rated health. Multivariate analyses with older participants (aged ≥ 60) in the MIDUS II (n = 1,533) showed that internal health locus of control was not only directly associated with positive ratings of health but also interacted with gender and race. The positive impact of internal health locus of control on self-rated health was particularly greater in females and Whites than their counterparts. Findings highlight the important role of internal health locus of control in the psychological mechanism of health and call attention to group-specific strategies for health promotion...

The current study describes a community-university partnership to support a gerontological social work student-delivered respite program, the Houseguest Program (Houseguest). Houseguest was designed using a community-engaged scholarship model of integrating research, teaching, and service. Houseguest was piloted with a small group of community-dwelling, co-residing dementia caregivers and care recipients. We examined caregivers' experiences with student-delivered respite using qualitative data analysis. Thematic analysis produced eight themes: 1) respite from full time caregiving role; 2) information on caregiving strategies; 3) no-cost supportive services; 4) opportunity for care recipients to socialize; 5) tailored activities for care recipients; 6) rapport-building between students and family dyad; 7) reciprocity between students and family dyad; and 8) program continuation...

The population of aging prisoners has increased significantly over the past several decades, resulting in concerns about the criminal justice system's ability to address the needs of prisoners and parolees with chronic health conditions. This is troubling, given the health disparities among incarcerated populations. Health self-management has become a strategy within the community-based health care industry to improve health services and outcomes while reducing health care costs for nonincarcerated individuals with chronic conditions...

This article provides a brief overview of the situation of the elderly and their caregivers in Japan, including demographic changes in Japan, development and changes in long-term care policy that have targeted the poorly integrated community care system, and other challenges that the elderly and family caregivers face. Policy direction designed to address these issues is increasingly targeting care by the community versus support care by society (which was initially the main strategy). The potential of empowerment-oriented community development intervention strategies to decrease the gap between available institutional and formal community-based services and the needs of the elderly and their families in their efforts to meet late life challenges is described...
