BACKGROUND: Weak relationships result in feelings of belonging to a social neighborhood, as can be found in retirement communities. OBJECTIVE: This article analyzes spatial arrangements and the registered rules for furnishings with respect to their potential to facilitate communitization processes and explain their modes of action as potential third places. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study took place in an American Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)...

BACKGROUND: Despite substantial progress in interventional cardiology, there are still many geriatric patients who require cardiac surgery. Estimation of the operative risk is therefore of great importance. OBJECTIVE: The prognostic value of the geriatric assessment for estimation of the operative risk was evaluated. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Between 2008 and 2009 a geriatric assessment was carried out on 500 patients before an urgent or elective cardiac surgery intervention...

REVIEW
Simone Gurlit, Henriette Möllmann
BACKGROUND: As more aged patients are surgically treated in hospitals without specialized geriatric care, patients at risk for perioperative complications must be identified and treatment must be adapted. The aim was the use of the Identification of Seniors at Risk (ISAR) as a screening tool for the identification of high-risk patients, who need specialized perioperative care. The study presented investigated the use of ISAR screening not only as recommended in the emergency room but also in validation tests as a new option in elective surgery...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Healthy ageing as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) is the development and maintenance of functional competence. Unfavourable ageing is described by the term frailty and is characterised by a decline in functional reserves. The frailty process can be influenced in a positive way. Previous interventions concerned mostly hospital patients and residents of nursing homes. In this study we examined the maintenance of functional competence in an urban community setting...

Peter Michell-Auli, Regina Gerlich
At present, the question of what quality of counselling means is very open. This is particularly reflected in the lack of a widely accepted catalogue of criteria. For evaluations and further developments of corresponding advisory services, this represents an essential issue. In this article a causal-theoretical model for quality in care counselling is developed and tested based on empirical data collected by compass private pflegeberatung (care consultants). The results lead to implications for the legally formulated evaluation order according to § 7a of the Social Security Code XI (SGB XI)...

BACKGROUND: Communicating and interacting with persons diagnosed with dementia (PwD) present a challenge to pastoral carers, since most classical pastoral care approaches concentrate on conversation as a medium of relationship formation and do not take limited communication skills into account. This study focuses on the following question: how can hospital-based pastoral carers find appropriate methods of communication and interaction with PwD and provide them with pastoral care? METHODS: A total of 10 professional pastoral carers participated in the study...

BACKGROUND: Traditional municipal services are not successful at reaching Turkish seniors. Compared to native Germans Turkish seniors have a lower social participation. OBJECTIVE: Do native language groups hosted by a German organization promote the social participation of Turkish seniors? How does social participation take place in the ZWAR networks (between work and retirement; a project to strengthen social participation of seniors) and which factors promote or reduce social participation? MATERIAL AND METHODS: Qualitative structuring content analysis of two group discussions, which were based on guided interviews...

BACKGROUND: Compared with the general population, chronic drug addicts already start showing typical aging problems by the age of 40 years. The increasing number of older drug addicts leads to questions of what an adequate health and social care should look like. This discussion particularly takes place in the context of a sufficient integration of different care systems. A sufficient integration requires an improvement in the networking of substance treatment, nursing care and medical care services...

BACKGROUND: The Hospice and Palliative Care Act (2015) promotes advance care planning (ACP) for patients in nursing homes, but chronically ill patients living at home can also benefit from ACP. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to analyze the perception of ACP consultations by patients with advanced heart failure. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Patients (70 years and older) with advanced heart failure participated in two physician-led ACP consultations...

#12
REVIEW
Julia Kühn, Paula Trotz, Gabriele I Stangl
The prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency, usually assessed by the analysis of circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH])D), is very high in the aging German population. An important factor that reduces endogenous vitamin D synthesis in older persons is physical inactivity or care-dependency that limits the time spent outside. Additionally, it has been suggested that the age-dependent decline in the glomerular filtration rate is associated with a reduced production of bioactive calcitriol. As this phenomenon is not detectable by the assessment of 25(OH)D, it is necessary to analyze the level of parathyroid hormone as a marker of calcitriol function...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The present project investigated the hypothesis that a multimodal individual activation of people with mild to moderate dementia in the home setting during a 6-month intervention period leads to improved everyday practice and cognitive abilities compared to the control group. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Intervention: a practical activation was performed by relatives 6 days per week. Cognitive stimulation took place once a week and was done by an external person...

BACKGROUND: A multitude of studies have demonstrated a positive effect of spirituality for dealing with difficult situations in life; however, specific studies on spirituality in older age are exceptionally rare within the German gerontological research landscape. The theory of gerotranscendence by Tornstam indicates that spirituality is of particular importance for maintaining life satisfaction especially in older age, due to a change in perspective. OBJECTIVES: This study looked into the research questions of how spirituality is presented in the oldest old (80 years and older) in Germany and to what extent its characteristics are specific to older age...

BACKGROUND: Hip fractures are regarded as a worldwide epidemic and a major public health concern. Changing risk factors, local differences and temporal trends contribute to the particular epidemiology of hip fractures. This overview gives a comprehensive insight into the epidemiology of hip fractures and reviews where German data have contributed to the literature. METHODS: The review of the epidemiology of hip fractures in Germany is based on a systematic literature search in PubMed...
