Pain Self-management Program for Older Adults

It is well documented that severe pain is more common in older adults than it is younger persons. Of concern, older adults may not have access to traditional face-to-face self-management programs, which are recognized to be valuable in chronic pain management. Access to effective self-management approaches is particularly important for older adults who may have mobility limitations or live in remote areas, or have difficulty accessing health care services. The development of ef...

The proposed study involves a two group randomized trial where participants will be randomized to the Fittle S...

Evaluating Technology-Based Fall Prevention Interventions

Approximately one in three older adults fall annually and it is the primary cause of traumatic injury in older adults. While exercise and balance programs have been shown to be effective in reducing fall risk, maintaining behavior change is known to be difficult. Thus additional interventions need to be validated to add to our current armamentarium to reduce falls in older adults. Cognitive training (CT) involves exercises that target specific cognitive tasks, such as memory or...

ABLE (Arts-Based Exercise Enhancing LongEvity)

Older adults who are referred to home care physiotherapy often only get to see the physiotherapist three to five times and are expected to continue exercising on their own. We have developed an interactive technology called ABLE that helps older adults do exercise in their homes by making it fun and interactive. We want to see if we can help 25 older adults to exercise with ABLE for three months and if exercising with ABLE for three months changes older adults' strength and bal...

Effect of a Community-based Nursing Intervention on Mortality in Chronically Ill Older Adults

Care coordination, disease management, geriatric care management, and preventive programs for chronically ill older adults vary in design and their impact on long-term health outcomes is not well established.

Computer-Based Physical Activity Advice for Ethnic Minority Aging Adults

Despite the recognized health benefits of a physically active lifestyle, mid-life and older low-income and ethnic minority adults, including Hispanic Americans, are among the least active and understudied groups in the U.S. This research aims to develop and evaluate a bi-lingual physical activity promotion program, applying easy to use state-of-the-art computer technology, which is tailored to the preferences and needs of mid-life and older Latino adults. Such computer-based pr...

Falling Risks in Elderly Adults

Introduction: the prevalence of falls in adults aged 65 years or older living in the community is 30%, being the second cause of accidental fatal injury and the fifth cause of death. About 20 to 30% of falls result in injuries: 10% constitute serious injuries, from which 5% are fractures. As a result, older adults decrease their mobility, are afraid of falling depressed and socially isolated, increasing the risk of later falls, death and health costs. Falls and their consequenc...

Improving Outcome for Family Caregivers of Older Adults With Complex Conditions: The Adult Day Plus (ADS Plus) Program

Over 15 million family caregivers provide more than 85% of long-term care to older adults with Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders. Caregivers typically assume care responsibilities without training or support and may in turn experience multiple health risks including depression. Providing evidence-based caregiver supportive programs on a wide scale basis is identified by the National Alzheimer's Plan Act as a national priority. One approach is to augment existing communi...

Healthy Living Programme for Older Adults
