OBJECTIVES: Critical appraisal of all available evidence regarding the role of noninvasive communication technology for improving patient survival and reducing hospital admissions in adults with chronic heart failure (HF). DESIGN: Systematic literature review and grading of the quality of evidence according to the Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) Working Group approach. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: Four databases were searched in March 2018 to find 2 high-quality meta-analyses and published and unpublished data from 58 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that compared noninvasive communication technology with usual care in community-dwelling adults with HF...

REVIEW
Uros Marusic, Joe Verghese, Jeannette R Mahoney
OBJECTIVE: A strong relation between cognition and mobility has been identified in aging, supporting a role for enhancement mobility through cognitive-based interventions. However, a critical evaluation of the consistency of treatment effects of cognitive-based interventions is currently lacking. The objective of this study was 2-fold: (1) to review the existing literature on cognitive-based interventions aimed at improving mobility in older adults and (2) to assess the clinical effectiveness of cognitive interventions on gait performance...

OBJECTIVES: Following the concept of a metabolic load-capacity model, we propose the use of appendicular skeletal muscle mass (ASM) to total body fat (TBF) ratio in predicting 4-year physical limitations, physical performance measures, 6-year incident diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, and 12-year mortality. DESIGN: Cross-sectional and prospective cohort study. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: 4000 men and women aged 65 years and older living in the community...

OBJECTIVES: To explore whether severity of cognitive impairment and agitation of older people with dementia predict outcomes in engagement, mood states, and agitation after a 10-week intervention with the robotic seal, PARO. DESIGN: Data from the PARO intervention-arm of a cluster-randomized controlled trial was used, which involved individual, nonfacilitated, 15-minute sessions with PARO 3 afternoons per week for 10 weeks. SAMPLE AND PARTICIPANTS: One hundred thirty-eight residents-aged ≥60 years, with dementia-from 9 long-term care facilities...

OBJECTIVES: A large proportion of the oldest old and centenarians live in long-term care facilities. Although there may be distinct care patterns in centenarians compared with other cohorts of oldest old, the exact development concerning prevalence, length of stay, and factors that are associated with long-term care status in the last years before death is unknown. DESIGN: Longitudinal analyses of health insurance data across 6 years before death. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: In all, 1398 institutionalized and noninstitutionalized oldest old [deceased at 80-89 (octogenarians), 90-99 (nonagenarians), or over 100 years of age (centenarians)] from Germany were included...

OBJECTIVES: A process evaluation was performed for an intervention aimed at improvement of the management of neuropsychiatric symptoms in young-onset dementia. Data about sample quality and intervention quality was evaluated to better understand internal and external validity. In addition, data about the implementation strategy and factors affecting implementation were evaluated to improve further implementation of the intervention. DESIGN: A model proposed by Leontjevas and colleagues consisting of first-order (validity) and second-order (implementation) data was used...

The impact of dementia and Alzheimer's disease extends far beyond the healthcare needs of the person with dementia. As the disease progresses, individuals with dementia often require ongoing formal or informal care for their basic daily routine because of behavior changes and continuing loss of cognitive function. Most of the care for people with dementia takes place at home, and the unpaid, informal caregivers are often spouses or other relatives. Providing long-term informal care at home for someone with dementia is psychologically, physically, and financially draining...
