Allenamento cognitivo a circuito. Training per il potenziamento delle abilità intellettive in adulti e anziani

Laura Pedrinelli Carrara

editore: Erickson

pagine: 360

Cause di natura molto diversa, come patologie, traumi o il fisiologico avanzamento dell'età, possono portare le persone ad avere bisogno di riabilitare o mantenere attive le proprie funzioni cognitive. Da questa esigenza nasce il programma Allenamento cognitivo a circuito, che grazie a un lavoro strutturato, selettivo e continuato aiuta a prevenire la perdita o a limitare l'alterazione di specifiche abilità intellettive in adulti e anziani. Il training è costituito da 14 moduli, in cui si ripetono, con livelli di difficoltà crescente, otto tipologie di esercizi che riguardano: orientamento spazio-temporale; memoria a breve e a lungo termine; ragionamento astratto, verbale e numerico; attenzione selettiva, sostenuta e divisa; creatività; linguaggio (riconoscimento e classificazione, abilità verbale, comprensione e produzione; competenza emotiva. Il volume rappresenta un valido strumento per gli operatori che si prendono cura degli anziani o di chi necessita di una riabilitazione cognitiva. La grafica chiara e le consegne semplici e immediate rendono il libro di facile fruizione anche da parte del soggetto, che, tramite la metodologia a circuito, può svolgere il programma in completa autonomia. Attraverso la ricerca e la verifica delle risposte corrette, viene stimolata infine un'altra categoria cognitiva, quella dell'apprendimento.

Muoversi per non subire il tempo. Teoria, metodologia e didattica dell'attività motoria per la terza età

Katia Francesconi, Giovanni Gandini

editore: Edi. Ermes

pagine: 352

L'attività motoria regolare e misurata nella terza età permette di mantenere efficienti le funzioni e ritardare gli effetti negativi del tempo. La data di nascita non è indicativa della vera età del soggetto: quella che conta è l'età biologica, potenziata dal desiderio di essere ancora protagonisti della propria esistenza. Si tratta di modificare radicalmente lo stile di vita e creare una nuova cultura che recuperi il movimento come parte essenziale dell'esistenza. L'età anziana è percepita in modo negativo e gli anziani stessi si vivono come persone affette da problemi di natura fisica e psicologica: gli anziani ancora attivi, invece, hanno maggiore fiducia in se stessi e un invariato desiderio di rendersi utili. Ecco, allora, che il testo diviene un quadro programmatico: nel volume sono esposte la teoria, la metodologia e la didattica per un corretto approccio all'attività motoria nella terza età. Come contrastare il tempo: più di 700 esercizi per raggiungere gli obiettivi psicosociali atti a favorire il rilancio della corporeità nel rapporto con l'altro, quelli psicomotori per consolidare la coscienza del corpo e gli obiettivi fisiologici per ottimizzare il movimento.

Particular attention is paid to the commonpitfalls in emergency management andmeans of avoiding them. Between 1980 and 2013, the number of older patients in emergency departmentsworldwide doubled.

This book, written by internationally recognized experts in emergency medicine and geriatrics, not only presents the state of the art in the care of this population but also underlines the increasing need for adequate training and development in the field.

Quanto costa l'RSA?

Costi e tariffe RSA Manuale di tariffazione

Franco Pesaresi

editore: Maggioli Editore

pagine: 332

Quali sono i costi delle Residenze sanitarie assistenziali (RSA) e quali sono gli elementi che li determinano? Chi paga questi costi e quali sono le tariffe previste dalle regioni per le RSA? Il volume cerca di dare una risposta a queste domande fornendo anche gli strumenti per valutare l'efficienza delle strutture e per implementare moderni sistemi di tariffazione che si possono allargare, oltre che alle RSA, anche alle altre strutture residenziali per anziani. Infatti, dopo un'analisi dettagliata e comparata sulle varie tipologie dei costi si offre una panoramica completa dei sistemi di tariffazione utilizzati in Italia e all'estero per le strutture residenziali per anziani, illustrando nel dettaglio le metodologie per l'implementazione dei due sistemi tariffari del case-mix attualmente più diffusi in Italia (RUG e SVAMA). Il quadro viene completato con l'illustrazione di quanto avviene in Italia e all'estero per quel che riguarda la compartecipazione alla spesa da parte dell'assistito giungendo a fornire utili indicazioni per impostare un rapporto trasparente, equilibrato e rispettoso delle normative con gli ospiti delle strutture residenziali. Viene presentato anche uno schema di regolamento, aggiornato al nuovo ISEE, sulla compartecipazione alla spesa da parte dell'utenza di strutture residenziali per anziani.

Geriatric Emergencies

A Discussion-Based Review

Amal Mattu, Peter Rosen
e altri

editore: John Wiley & Sons Inc

pagine: 408

The elderly represent the fastest growing segment of the population in developed countries, reflected in the patient population presenting to EDs and hospitals. These patients more often than not have greater co-morbidities, more complicated workups and utilize more laboratory and radiologic services. This text is designed to teach emergency physicians how best to care for this specific demographic of patients. It addresses physiologic changes, high-risk conditions, and atypical presentations associated with elderly patients in the ED that result in frequent misdiagnosis or delays in diagnosis. It instructs the readers how best to care for elderly patients in order to minimize morbidity and mortality, addressing some of the difficult psychosocial issues that confront health care providers that care for elderly patients, such as psychiatric disease and end-of-life care. The utility of this text is not limited to emergency physicians, but it should be useful to all health care providers involved in the treatment of elderly patients with acute medical or surgical conditions.
