Better Elder Care : A Nurse's Guide to Caring for Older Adults

This new reference provides the nurse with practical information on health conditions that typically affect geriatric patients – from Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, and diabetes to hip fracture, incontinence, and Parkinson’s disease. It also reviews the normal physiologic deficits associated with aging, such as vision and hearing impairments; pharmacodynamic changes in aging; and such timely issues as elder abuse, advance directives, living wills, assisted living, pain control, Medicare, and end-of-life care. Throughout the text, the nurse will find clinical alerts, teaching aids, charting guides, healthful living recommendations, alternative therapies, and more to guide care. Scores of illustrations visually reinforce key points.
