Age-Friendly Health Systems for Older Adults With Dementia

Age-Friendly Health Systems for Older Adults With Dementia Today, millions of Americans age 65 and older are living with dementia. With the progressive decline in cognition and the incurable nature of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, patients experience multiple complex conditions and are not able to choose their care priority. In this study we review the unique challenges related to dementia faced by older adults with dementia, their families, and the health system in the United States, and we propose to address or alleviate such issues by building evidence-based, age-friendly health systems for older adults with dementia, including improving patient priority care and transitions and coordination among different care settings. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal for Nurse Practitioners Elsevier

Abstract

Today, millions of Americans age 65 and older are living with dementia. With the progressive decline in cognition and the incurable nature of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, patients experience multiple complex conditions and are not able to choose their care priority. In this study we review the unique challenges related to dementia faced by older adults with dementia, their families, and the health system in the United States, and we propose to address or alleviate such issues by building evidence-based, age-friendly health systems for older adults with dementia, including improving patient priority care and transitions and coordination among different care settings.
