Ginnastica antietà. Il metodo geromotricità

Cesarina Minasso, Ada Piccolo

editore: Edizioni Mediterranee

pagine: 160

Il volume presenta l'evoluzione del metodo "geromotricità" ideato da Cesarina Minasso e da Ada Piccolo in collaborazione con Giuseppina Giorgi Troletti, antesignana in Italia della ginnastica per anzianiDalla fine degli anni Settanta a oggi il loro metodo si è diffuso su tutto il territorio nazionale ed è quindi emersa la necessità di trasmettere le esperienze e gli approfondimenti successivi in modo organico e strutturato. Nella prima parte di questo testo completamente nuovo, viene presentato uno studio del processo di senescenza negli aspetti anatomici, fisiologici, psichici e sociali; nella seconda parte sono sviluppate la metodologia e la didattica, intese quale processo di insegnamento pratico del metodo, applicabile all'anziano sano che vive in casa propria e che frequenta la palestra; nella terza parte, invece, si illustra il metodo dedicato al "grande anziano" ospite in strutture residenziali: in modo specifico viene considerato l'intervento geromotorio in presenza di demenza e morbo di Parkinson, patologie purtroppo ancora irreversibili, ma rallentatoli. Nella quarta parte del libro, infine, si espongono le indicazioni per un lavoro sulla persona singola, quando non sia possibile o opportuna l'attività in gruppo. "Ginnastica antietà" è rivolto ai laureati in Scienze Motorie, agli operatori della motricità (fisioterapisti, osteopati, chinesiterapisti ecc.) e a tutte le figure che, con ruoli diversi, si occupano degli anziani.

Oxford Handbook of Geriatric Medicine

James Price, Lesley Bowker
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 728

In an ageing population, geriatric medicine has become central to general practice, and to emergency and general internal medicine in the hospital setting. Diseases are more common in the older person, and can be particularly difficult to assess and to treat effectively in a field that has limited evidence, yet makes up a substantial proportion of the work of most clinicians. Fully updated, this second edition of the Oxford Handbook of Geriatric Medicine includes all the information required to deliver effective geriatric care. Guidance is given on a range of key treatment areas, indicating where practice differs from that of younger adults or is ill informed by evidence, where dangers lurk for the inexperienced clinician, and on the many ethical and clinical dilemmas common in geriatric practice. This accessible handbook is essential reading for all junior doctors and specialist trainees in geriatric medicine and general internal medicine, and for all medical and nursing staff who manage older people.
