Individuals with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and their caregivers are using supplements in an effort to halt the progression of the disease. Individuals at risk for or fearing Alzheimer's may use these supplements to try to prevent the disease. Senior care pharmacists are accessible and uniquely qualified to answer questions, make recommendations, and attempt to make drug therapy safe and effective for these individuals. With this in mind, it is important to know the data supporting (or not supporting) common supplements marketed toward those with AD...

Thomas Walczyk, Jeannette Y Wick
Americans have embraced a large number of diets in an attempt to manage obesity, improve quality of life, and address specific health problems. Among diets developed to address health problems, the ketogenic diet has had a long and variable history. Developed in the 1920s by a faith healer to help children with epilepsy, this diet induces a state that mimics carbohydrate starvation. As medications became available and effectively addressed seizures, the diet fell out of favor. During the last few decades, researchers and clinicians have learned that it can be useful in children and adults with refractory epilepsy and a variety of other conditions...

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally found in very few food sources. It is produced endogenously from ultraviolet light from the sun striking the skin and then triggering vitamin D synthesis and activation. Vitamin D helps promote calcium absorption in the gut, maintains adequate serum calcium and phosphate levels, promotes bone growth, modulates cell growth, and has many other roles. There have been an increasing number of people, especially in older adults, with vitamin D deficiency. This is in part a result of a reduction of sun exposure as people age, increase in use of sunscreen, and other factors...

Wandering away from home or facilities is dangerous for patients with dementia and stressful for families and caregivers when those who go missing cannot be located. Up to 60% of Alzheimer's disease patients wander, and up to 50% of those who are not found within 24 hours face serious injury or death. Currently, no effective drug therapies exist to abate wandering, which has multiple causes, but emerging technologies offer a promise of comfort in being able to easily locate a missing loved one. As of 2012, 41 states had enacted Silver Alert programs that broadcast information about missing, vulnerable adults...

Recent changes in regulations by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services require long-term care facilities to meet specific requirements on antibiotic stewardship, promoting the appropriate use of antibiotics and antimicrobials. The goal is to improve patient outcomes and decrease the spread of infections caused by multi-drug-resistant organisms. Consultant pharmacists can help facility personnel implement policies and procedures for effective antibiotic stewardship, assist prescribers and facility staff in understanding how to use the facility's antibiogram, find appropriate resources, and provide facility personnel with feedback on their antimicrobial stewardship efforts...

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is expected to expand requirements for antimicrobial stewardship in nursing facilities during 2016. Many facilities are looking to pharmacists to help them take the initial steps toward developing these coordinated programs to promote the appropriate use of antimicrobials.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are focused heavily on curbing the misuse of antibiotics in health care facilities. Regulations governing the management of antibiotics in the nursing facility will likely be changing in the near future, which will put the pharmacist at the forefront of a clinical team that is dedicated to proper antibiotic utilization. Savvy pharmacists are embracing this opportunity to engage long-term care facility staff to improve the care of their residents...
