Families Caring for an Aging America Need Palliative Care.

Effect of Physical Activity versus Health Education on Physical Function, Grip Strength and Mobility.

Physical activity (PA) reduces the rate of mobility disability, compared with health education (HE), in at risk older adults. It is important to understand aspects of performance contributing to this benefit.

Predicting Mortality up to 14 Years Among Community-Dwelling Adults Aged 65 and Older.

Extended validation of an index predicting mortality among community-dwelling US older adults.

Can Braden Score Predict Outcomes for Hospitalized Heart Failure Patients?

Braden score is a routine assessment of pressure ulcer risk hypothesized to identify the frail phenotype.

Improving the Electronic Capture of Advance Care Directives in a Healthcare Delivery System.

To determine the effectiveness of a multifaceted quality improvement intervention in outpatient clinics at an integrated healthcare delivery system on capture rate of advance directives (ADs) in the electronic medical record (EMR).

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement in the Care of Older Persons with Aortic Stenosis.

Long-term Metformin Therapy and Monitoring for Vitamin B12 Deficiency Among Older Veterans.

To examine the association between long-term metformin therapy and serum vitamin B12 monitoring.

New Zealand's interRAI: A Resource For Examining Health Outcomes in Geriatric Pharmacoepidemiology.

Outcomes of Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery Versus Drug-Eluting Stents in Older Adults.

Little data are available to compare coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) vs percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with drug-eluting stents (DES) in older adults. We evaluate the long-term outcomes of CABG vs PCI with DES in older adults with left main or multivessel coronary artery disease (CAD).

Oral Health and Incident Depressive Symptoms: JAGES Project Longitudinal Study in Older Japanese.

To determine whether oral health status predicts depressive symptoms in older Japanese people.

Brain MRI-markers Associate Differentially with Cognitive Versus Functional Decline Leading to Dementia.

Brain MRI-markers are risk factors of dementia and decline in cognition and daily functioning. It is unknown to what extent the associations of brain MRI-markers with cognition and daily functioning are part of the pathway leading to dementia. We aimed to investigate associations of brain MRI-markers with change in cognition and daily functioning during 15 years of follow-up, including their relation to dementia.

Advancing the Neurophysiological Understanding of Delirium.

Delirium is a common problem associated with substantial morbidity and increased mortality. However, the brain dysfunction that leads some individuals to develop delirium in response to stressors is unclear. In this article, we briefly review the neurophysiologic literature characterizing the changes in brain function that occur in delirium, and in other cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer's disease. Based on this literature, we propose a conceptual model for delirium. We propose that delirium results fro...

Physicians' Responsibilities for Deaths Occurring at Home.

Deaths occurring at home are increasing in the United States. Primary care physicians and trainees may not be explicitly taught about management of deaths in the home. Physician responsibilities for expected and unexpected deaths at home are summarized. The medical examiner should be contacted if death was due to natural disease processes but occurred suddenly or when a physician was not treating the decedent. Police and emergency personnel are often called after terminally ill individuals have died at home...

Experimental Comparison of Efficacy for Three Handfeeding Techniques in Dementia.

Nursing home (NH) residents who require assistance during mealtimes are at risk for malnutrition. Supportive handfeeding is recommended, yet there is limited evidence supporting use of a specific handfeeding technique to increase meal intake.

Relationship Between Midlife Cardiovascular Health and Late-Life Physical Performance: The ARIC Study.

To examine the association between midlife cardiovascular health and physical performance 25 years later.

Reply to: Comment on "The Effects of Elastic Resistance Bands Exercise on Postural Balance, the Estrogen, Bone Metabolism Index, and Muscle Strength of Perimenopausal Women".

New or Worsening Symptoms and Signs in Community-Dwelling Persons with Dementia: Incidence and Relation to Use of Acute Medical Services.

To understand the range of symptoms that present to family caregivers of community-dwelling persons with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD).

Assessment of Dentally Related Function in Individuals with Cognitive Impairment: The Dental Activities Test.

To develop and validate the Dental Activities Test (DAT), a clinical tool for measuring dentally related function in cognitively impaired older adults.

Changing Patterns in Oral Bisphosphonate Initiation in Women between 2004 and 2012.

Comment on "Effects of Resistance Band Exercise on Postural Balance, Estrogen, Bone …".

An Automated Approach to Identifying Patients with Dementia Using Electronic Medical Records.

Implementation of Observational Pain Management Protocol for Residents With Dementia: A Cluster-RCT.

To investigate whether the implementation of the Observational Pain Management Protocol (Protocol) can improve pain management for nursing home residents with dementia.

Life-Space Mobility Change Predicts 6-Month Mortality.

To examine 6-month change in life-space mobility as a predictor of subsequent 6-month mortality in community-dwelling older adults.

Albuminuria in Association with Cognitive Function and Dementia: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

Cerebral microvascular disease is considered to contribute to cognitive dysfunction. We opted to explore whether albuminuria, a marker of systemic microangiopathy, is associated with cognitive impairment, dementia, and cognitive function.

Economic Analysis of Primary Care-Based Physical Activity Counseling in Older Men: The VA-LIFE Trial.

To perform an economic evaluation of a primary care-based physical activity counseling intervention that improved physical activity levels and rapid gait speed in older veterans.
