Dementia and Wandering Behavior

Winner of an AJN Book of the Year Award! Alzheimer's is quickly becoming the epidemic of the 21st century. Today, an estimated four million Americans suffer from this devastating disease. This number could explode to 14 million by the year 2050, when baby boomers come of age. Written in a clear and accessible style, Dementia and Wandering Behavior brings attention to this life-threatening problem and helps professionals and family caregivers understand that there are preventative measures available. By focusing on specific responses to wandering behavior and describing ways to create a safe environment in the home, community, and care facility, this book teaches you how to maximize autonomy while minimizing risk for people with dementia in your care.

Introduction to Senior Transportation focuses on an issue that is a growing concern—the community mobility needs of older adults. Surpassing the coverage available in existing gerontology textbooks, it enables the reader to understand and appreciate the challenges faced by older adults as they make the transition from driving to using transportation options (many of which were not designed to meet their particular needs). It considers the physical and cognitive limitations of older adult passengers, the family of transportation services, the challenges providers face in meeting the assistance and support needs of senior passengers, and the transportation methods that do and do not currentl...

Improving Hospital Care for Persons with Dementia

What happens when a person with dementia is hospitalized? It is usually a fall, a hip fracture, a serious infection, or an acute exacerbation of congestive heart failure, diabetes, or another chronic medical condition that precipitates hospitalization, not the person's demenetia. This book provides insights into the issues and gaps in quality of hospital care for patients with dementia. The book will helps practitioners improve the experiences that patients with dementia encounter in acute care settings by offering actual case examples provided by managers of assisted living, emergency rooms, and community geriatric cases; by persons with dementia who live alone; and by other doctors and nurses who care for these patients. These case examples illustrate the challenges faced and suggest strategies for successful and appropriate treatment planning. This book will be useful for all hospital practitioners who encounter patients with dementia, from administrators, to nurses, social workers, physicians, gerontologists, and psychologists.
