#1
Maja Wiest, Madlain Hoffmann, Sarah Widany, Katrin Kaufmann
BACKGROUND: Research on nonformal education often focuses on participation within employment. Participation of workers decreases with age; however, recent studies show an increase in participation in nonformal education of older workers. It remains, however, unclear if this trend spills over to retirement. OBJECTIVE: In the context of social change processes, trends in nonformal educational participation are analyzed. The study addresses employment and retirement as opportunity structures and investigates their impact on educational participation in the second half of life...

REVIEW
Julia Haberstroh, Tanja Müller
BACKGROUND: Currently, there are no concrete, evidence-based default procedures to adequately assess the capacity to consent to medical treatment. This explains why different raters use individual heuristics, differing both within and between disciplines. The lack of a procedure that is standardized, validated, and equally accepted across disciplines to assess the capacity to consent to treatment has led to an uncertainty in legal and medical practice regarding appropriate action and decision making...

REVIEW
Gerhard Igl, Daniela Sulmann
Ten years ago, the Charter for People in Need of Long-term Care was published in Germany. The Charter contains a series of basic rights for people in need of long-term care. At the initiative of the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ), this was developed in a complex consensus process together with the Federal Ministry of Health (BMG) and representatives from all areas of care. Since then, the Charter has gained practical relevance in various areas of care and has entered into legislation...

REVIEW
Dirk van den Heuvel, Carsten Klein
The article discusses the questions of the arbitration bodies according to § 111b SGB V (Volume V of the Social Insurance Code) in the individual federal states from the perspective of geriatric rehabilitation hospitals. The content of the agreement of reimbursement between a rehabilitation hospital and health insurance will be targeted as well as the question whether the entire content of the agreements of reimbursement can be negotiated at the arbitration body. In addition, the authors describe the consequences of the jurisprudence of the Federal Social Court on § 301 I...

Most elderly people wish to remain and be cared for in their own home. Approximately 1.38 million people in Germany are cared for without professional support. However, domestic care by relatives can be a risk factor for violence against the elderly. This research project deals with the issue from a legal and social sciences perspective. The aim of the project is to develop a regulatory framework providing aid-oriented prevention and intervention in the family care of vulnerable elderly people by public agencies and courts...

BACKGROUND: Impairment of central auditory processing is a well-known symptom of neurodegenerative dementia; however, whilst numerous studies have examined verbal processing impairment, to date few have attempted to describe impairments of non-verbal, environmental sound recognition in patients with dementia. As these impairments may have direct implications on patient support and care, such studies are urgently necessary. AIM OF THE STUDY: The aim of the study was to determine whether the recognition of meaningful environmental sounds is impaired in patients with mild or early stage neurodegenerative dementia...

PURPOSE: To investigate the correlation between the level of 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25-(OH)D] and community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) in elderly patients. METHODS: A total of 163 older patients were chosen from those hospitalized between October 2011 and October 2012. Patients were divided into pneumonia and non-pneumonia groups, and the concentrations of 25-(OH)D (nmol/L) in serum were measured. Clinical data were then compared between the two groups and pneumonia-related risk factors were analyzed using logistic regression...

Wolfgang Löscher, Bernhard Iglseder
The peripheral nervous system is subject to changes during the ageing process, e. g. deep tendon reflexes decrease, as does proprioception. Polyneuropathies, on the other hand, need to be distinguished from age-related changes as independent diseases with etiologies similar to those at younger ages. Etiologies includes metabolic disorders, primary inflammatory polyneuropathies, and systemic disorders. Neuropathies associated with diabetes, malignancy, and monoclonal gammopathies appear to be more common in older patients...

Sabine Schrank, Laura Adlbrecht, Hanna Mayer
BACKGROUND: Although there are various measures for the prevention, treatment, and management of urinary incontinence (UI), absorbing aids (and only scant continence-promoting measures) are primarily used in nursing homes in Austria. Repetitive peripheral muscle stimulation (RPMS) is already used as a common method for the treatment and prevention of incontinence in the outpatient setting and is an effective alternative compared to the usual incontinence treatments. However, there are no empirical data as yet on the effect of RPMS in nursing home residents...

REVIEW
S Richter, J M Glöckner, B Blättner
BACKGROUND: There are no sufficient findings from synthesized evidence for the effectiveness of psychosocial interventions to improve mental health in inpatient care. METHODS: A systematic literature search in the databases of MEDLINE, The Cochrane Library, EMBASE, CINAHL, and PsycINFO was carried out, as well as a manual search in Google Scholar and reference lists. Studies which focused on physical or individual activities or therapy or other groups and settings were excluded...

REVIEW
Verena Leve, Katharina Ilse, Marie Ufert, Stefan Wilm, Michael Pentzek
BACKGROUND: With most forms of dementia, the risk of road traffic accidents increases with disease progression. Addressing the issue of fitness to drive at an early stage can help to reduce driving-related risks and simultaneously preserve mobility. General practitioners (GPs) are central contact persons for dementia patients and their relatives in medical and psychosocial matters, and also play a key role in addressing the issue of driving safety. OBJECTIVE: Identification of relevant aspects of managing fitness to drive in dementia, as well as of support requirements for German general practice...

BACKGROUND: In recent years, politics and society have shown an increasing interest in the prevention of violence. Despite the scientific studies and prevention programs that have been conducted over the past few years, there is no indication that the prevalence of violence in elderly care is falling. A high number of unreported cases may still be assumed. OBJECTIVE: The present study examined the barriers in transferring research knowledge into practice. Furthermore, it dealt with the requirements of an interventional approach which is practical and which effectively addresses the barriers...

A case study of an 89-year-old patient is reported, who was admitted to hospital because of immobility due to pain. After the cause of the pain could initially be clarified and treated, the further clinical course in this very old woman showed an alarming symptom complex of agitation, confusion and cognitive deterioration, which took on grave forms. The work-up of this case showed a typical constellation of pain and depression in old age; however, the pharmaceutical treatment in this case is not atypical and could lead to a severe serotonin syndrome...

#19
Thomas Schäfer, Jasmin Riedel
BACKGROUND: Studies with younger participants have shown that listening to music is used to achieve a multitude of positive effects that can be summarized by three fundamental dimensions: self-awareness, social relatedness and regulation of mood and arousal. For the elderly, these effects contain a high potential with respect to alleviation of affective symptoms and enhancement of social participation; however, it is still unclear if the elderly exhibit the same pattern of fundamental uses of listening to music as younger persons and how they evaluate their access to music in different housing situations...

The use of biomarkers for diagnostics of Alzheimer's disease (AD) has increased over the last years in specialized care and experimental settings. With the possibly upcoming availability of disease-modifying therapeutic agents, the diagnostics and treatment of patients with cognitive impairment will change. Biomarkers will be used as theranostic markers for case finding. The development and evaluation of biomarkers can be framed in a phase model from preclinical studies through trials in expert center settings to the evaluation of biomarkers in primary care, up to testing the efficacy and the impact of biomarkers on the healthcare system...
