Digital technologies, including robots, are being increasingly used in elderly care. Their impact on users carries implications for successfully integrating technological innovations into care. This study aims to identify the impacts of care-robot implementation on elderly-care service stakeholders.
The risk of aspiration pneumonia has been reported to increase with age, especially in elderly residents of nursing homes. However, the characteristics of those with swallowing impairments at elderly care facilities have not yet been evaluated using reliable instrumental examinations. The aims of the current study were to investigate the frequency of swallowing impairment and determine the characteristics of the elderly with swallowing disorders residing at care facilities.
In France, emergency departments (EDs) are the fastest and most common means for general practitioners (GPs) to cope with the complex issues presented by elderly patients with multiple conditions. EDs are overburdened, and studies show that being treated in EDs can have a damaging effect on the health of elderly patients. Outpatient care or planned hospitalizations are possible solutions if appropriate geriatric medical advice is provided. In 2013, France's regional health authorities proposed creating dire...
This paper measures the cyclicality of an important input into elderly health: informal care. Using independent survey measures of informal caregiving and care receipt over the past two decades, we find that informal care from adult children to their elderly parents is countercyclical. By contrast, informal care from spouses is procyclical among individuals in their sixties. We find little corresponding change in the use of formal care, highlighting the potential for unmet care needs across the business cyc...
An enormous challenge facing China is how to provide sustainable care for its rapidly-increasing elderly population. Its recent policy directives include three medical forms-the institution-cooperation-form, the institution-medical-form, and the family-physician-form-to integrate medical care into ordinary care for the elderly. This essay indicates that China will not be able to maintain sustainable elderly care unless it places emphasis on the family-physician-form that focuses on family physicians and th...
The aging of the population is a reality common to the entire Western world, while the time available and human resources are limited. According to many experts, the new robotic technologies could help meet the care needs of the elderly, at home and in hospitals and nursing homes. In particular, care robotics could foster their autonomy and provide support to operators in the sector. The robots also invite us to reflect on how we want to be, what kind of people we want to become, since we are launching ours...
With the growth in risk-based and accountable care organization contracts, creating value by redesigning care to reduce costs and improve outcomes and the patient experience has become an urgent priority for health care systems.
The advent of soft robotics represents a profound change in the forms robots will take in the future. However, this revolutionary change has already yielded such a diverse collection of robots that attempts at defining this group do not reflect existing "soft" robots. This paper aims to address this issue by scrutinizing a number of descriptions of soft robots arising from a literature review with the intention of determining a coherent meaning for soft. We also present a classification of existing soft rob...
understand elderly care dynamics of an emergency care unit.
The research examined how humans attribute blame to humans, nonautonomous robots, autonomous robots, or environmental factors for scenarios in which errors occur.
With the significant increase in the number of elderly in the world and the resulting health problems of these increasing, finding technical solutions to address this problem has become a pressing necessity, particularly in the field of health care. This paper proposes an e-health system for monitoring elderly health based on the Internet of Things (IoT) and Fog computing. The system was developed using Mysignals HW V2 platform and an Android app that plays the role of Fog server, which enables the collecti...
Providing informal care may affects caregivers' life in different ways. Determining the needs of caregivers and supporting them can improve both the quality of life of the caregivers, as well as the elderly they take care of.
Meeting the complex care needs of an ageing population is a global issue and long term care settings, such as care homes, play an essential role. However, there is a crisis in the recruitment of registered nurses within care homes. Higher educational institutions have a critical part to play in addressing the crisis in recruitment in care homes and it is argued that student nurses can have a significant role to play in co-creating curricular content responsive to population need.
to analyze the perception of elderly women about sexuality and practice of nursing care in this context.
to identify evidence of scientific production on hospital transition care provided to the elderly.
To synthesize the knowledge produced on best nursing practices in long-term care for elderly at home, in order to promote healthy aging.
The Discharge Care Experiences Survey (DICARES) was previously developed to measure quality of discharge care in elderly patients (≥ 65 years). The objective of this study was to test the factorial validity of responses of the DICARES, and to investigate its association with existing quality indicators.
In Rwanda, disruptions to family and social life as a result of the 1994 genocide, and the economic transformations in its aftermath, have complicated the fabric of elder care across the country. In this article, I focus on how elderly Rwandans are reconfiguring their care networks - many of which were destroyed during the genocide - by acting as caregivers and care receivers for each other on a daily basis. Although emotionally and physically taxing, elderly Rwandans emphasize that the "small things" embed...
Person-centered care demands the evaluation of needs and preferences of the patients. In this study, we conducted a segmentation analysis of a large sample of older people based on their bio-psycho-social-needs and functioning. The aim of this study was to clarify differences in health care use and costs of the elderly in Germany.
New technologies, like socially assistive robots (SARs), may have the potential to support caregivers at home. Still, the evidence for people with dementia in home care is unclear because a lot of studies are performed in a laboratory or institutional setting, and mainly use robots in prototype stages.
to identify factors inherent in hospital care that favor urinary incontinence in the elderly.
To assess temporal trends in pre-existing opioid exposure prior to hospitalization among elderly intensive care unit (ICU) patients and its association with adverse outcomes.
to investigate possible differences in care complexity, functional performance and biopsychosocial and health system aspects among hospitalized elderly with or without cognitive decline.
Strategic management of primary health care centres is necessary for creating an efficient global health care system that delivers good care.
Long-term nursing home residents have complex needs that often require services from acute care settings. The accountable care organization (ACO) model provides an opportunity to improve care by creating payment incentives for more coordinated, higher quality care.
