With the unprecedented growth of technology for disease prevention and management, little is known about the experience and adoption of such technology in African American older adults with hypertension. A 90-minute focus group session was used to explore African American older adults' (N = 21) experiences with using technology (mobile devices and applications) for hypertension self-management. Twenty participants reported owning smartphones and used this technology to communicate; seek, acquire, and share information; engage in entertainment; and organize and manage time...

Sarcopenia is a major source of disability in older adults. However, limited data are available about sarcopenia components (i.e., muscle mass, strength, and function) and their relationship to psychosocial factors among older adults living in residential care apartment complexes (RCACs). The current study examined muscle mass, strength, and function and explored their relationship to self-efficacy for exercise, depressive symptoms, and social support in 31 RCAC residents. RCAC residents had lower muscle mass, strength, and function compared to values reported in studies of community-dwelling older adults...

Older adults from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds are increasingly identified within mainstream aging populations. However, few studies have focused on CALD older adults' views and experiences in long-term care facilities (LTCFs). The current integrative review aimed to achieve a contemporary understanding through synthesized evidence from studies focusing on CALD older adults in mainstream LTCFs. Two major categories were identified-Views About LTCFs, which included two subcategories: (a) the last stop and no other choice and (b) reasons for admission or transfer; and Experiences of Living in LTCFs, which also included two subcategories: (a) desire to remain connected to personal routines and (b) maintaining identity through native language...

Older adult immigrants are often socially isolated and vulnerable to poor health. Adult day service (ADS) centers could potentially facilitate social integration and address their long-term health care needs. The current review (a) identifies barriers to and facilitators of ADS use among immigrants, (b) explores how ADS programs impact older adult immigrants' health and well-being, and (c) isolates the most effective culturally based components of ADS programs. An integrative review was conducted using Whittemore and Knafl's methodology...

Caregivers of adults with dementia often experience burden and depression as a result of their intensive caregiving activities. Dementia caregivers in rural communities experience additional barriers of large distances from health care providers and/or limited numbers of health care providers, which may further exacerbate burden. Technology has been identified as a platform for reducing dementia caregiver burden and stress, although the extent to which technologically based interventions have been tested with rural dementia caregivers is unknown...

Misdiagnosis, lack of specialists, and patient dismissal of symptoms can contribute to delayed detection of early cognitive impairment. Understanding patient perspectives during and around time of cognitive diagnosis is crucial, as reactions to diagnosis can impact disease management and overall health. The current study conducted semi-structured interviews to explore the experiences of rural-dwelling older adults (n = 9) and their caregivers (n = 10) surrounding diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment or early-stage Alzheimer's disease at a specialty research center (SRC)...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is more prevalent in older adults than other populations and affects health-related quality of life (HRQoL). However, few studies have investigated HRQoL and clinical factors in older adults with AF. The aim of the current cross-sectional study was to describe HRQoL using an AF-specific QoL instrument and identify factors influencing HRQoL in Korean older adults with AF. Data from 205 patients diagnosed with AF in a tertiary hospital were analyzed. Patients' mean age was 74.24 years and 43...

The objective of the current pilot study was to determine whether nurse-led telephone counseling improves health behavior, self-care, and physiological indices for low-income older adults using a telemonitoring system. The control group (n = 15) was provided with weekly health education only, and the intervention group (n = 20) was given additional telephone support by nurses. At baseline and 8 weeks, data on health and self-care behaviors were collected using a self-reported questionnaire, and blood pressure and fasting blood glucose levels were assessed...

Many health and social care research studies report difficulties recruiting sufficient numbers of participants, adding to time and money expenditures and potentially jeopardizing the generalizability of findings. The current article reports the effectiveness and resource requirements of recruitment strategies used in nine dementia-related studies conducted in Australia. Articles, notices, or advertisements in targeted specialist newsletters were the most cost-effective method of recruitment. The use of service providers to aid recruitment yielded mixed results, but was lengthy in terms of research time...

The purpose of the current study was to test the feasibility of using the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS® ) measures to assess change in self-reported health status for dyads of individuals with advanced Parkinson's disease (PD) and their caregivers. Fifteen dyads (N = 30) participated and took 11 PROMIS measures. The measures showed good reliability (all Cronbach's alphas > 0.82). Dyads reported worse health status than the PROMIS reference groups at baseline and 6-month follow up...

Mindfulness interventions have been beneficial for healthy adults and individuals experiencing a stressful medical or mental health diagnosis. The purposes of the current study were to: (a) determine feasibility of mindfulness for older adults in long-term residential settings, and (b) examine differences in outcomes between a mindfulness and cognitive activity. The current study is the first mindfulness study to include individuals in moderate and severe stages of dementia, and included 36 individuals with a range of cognitive abilities...

The current article discusses how and by whom family caregivers want to be supported in self-management when managing changes in behavior and mood of relatives with dementia and whether family caregivers consider eHealth a useful tool for self-management support. Four asynchronous online focus groups were held with 32 family caregivers of individuals with dementia. Transcripts of the online focus groups were analyzed using qualitative thematic analysis. Family caregivers need support from professionals or peers in the form of (a) information about dementia and its symptoms, (b) tips and advice on managing changes in behavior and mood, (c) opportunities to discuss experiences and feelings, and (d) appreciation and acknowledgement of caregiving...

Depressive symptoms and physical frailty have been reported to be predictive of adverse outcomes in individuals with heart failure (HF). Depressive symptoms could be a predisposing factor of physical frailty in older adults. Despite the high prevalence of HF, few studies on the relationship between these two factors have been performed in older adults with HF. To identify the relationship between depressive symptoms and physical frailty in HF, 190 older adults with HF were recruited from an outpatient clinic at a tertiary hospital in South Korea...
