Hugh Senior is an epidemiologist at the University of Queensland, Australia, and Matthew Parsons is a gerontologist at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. Their paper Promoting independence in frail older people: a randomised controlled trial of a restorative care service in New Zealand has recently been published inAge and Ageing journal.
Neurobiology of Aging publishes the results of studies in behavior, biochemistry, cell biology, endocrinology, molecular biology, morphology, neurology, neuropathology, pharmacology, physiology and protein chemistry in which the primary emphasis involves mechanisms of nervous system changes with age or diseases associated with age. Reviews and primary research articles are included, occasionally accompanied by open peer commentary. Letters to the Editor and brief communications are also acceptable. Brief reports of highly time-sensitive material are usually treated as rapid communications in which case editorial review is completed within six weeks and publication scheduled for the next available issue. The accepted abbreviation for Neurobiology of Aging for bibliographic citation is Neurobiol.
✏ a sustainable network of relevant sectors and stakeholders in the area of active and healthy ageing;
✏ a higher level of awareness amongst the general public and specific target groups of the needs and benefits of developing an AHA strategy;
✏ an analysis of the situation and the specific challenges in Slovenia with an overview and a comparative analysis of possible solutions (good practice examples, models, legislative measures, etc.). This process will be actively supported by selected Member States, WHO/Europe, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development and other international organizations.
Reading glasses should be a staple supply at facilities treating seniors, a psychiatrist suggests.Paula Span is the author of “When the Time Comes: Families With Aging Parents Share Their Struggles and Solutions.”
The possibility of becoming homeless is a scary thought. It’s even scarier to a person who is old and frail with dwindling finances. Among this growing population of older adults living in poverty are people forced to grow old in the streets and in shelters, elderly persons who have recently become homeless or who remain at constant risk of losing housing. The number of elderly homeless adults is expected to more than double between 2010 and 2050, when more than 95,000 elderly persons are projected to be homeless.
What makes us age biologically? We have always been intrigued by this question. Yet, it remains a fundamental research challenge. Now, the EU-funded project, EurHEALTHAgeing, aims to draw together studies of early development with those on longevity and ageing. By doing so, it hopes to decipher the molecular workings that lie behind how we age. But also explain why we get age-related diseases. Scientific coordinator Ana Valdes, a senior lecturer in statistical genetics at King's College London and associate professor at the faculty of medicine and health sciences at the University of Nottingham, in the UK, talks to youris.com about the role of nature versus nurture in ageing. She also talks about the importance of twin studies, epigenetics and how technology is helping us understanding ageing.
Nobody looks forward to “The Talk” with elderly parents – you know the one, about how well or even if they should be driving. Maybe it doesn’t have to be that bad, but for sure there’s a Generation Gap in perceptions about having that conversation. According to surveys conducted by Liberty Mutual [...]
It’s seven in the morning on the beach in Santa Monica, California. The low sun glints off the waves and the clouds are still golden from the dawn. The view stretches out over thousands of miles of Pacific Ocean. In the distance, white villas of wealthy Los Angeles residents dot the Hollywood hills. Here by the shore, curlews and sandpipers cluster on the damp sand. A few metres back from the water’s edge, a handful of people sit cross-legged: members of a local Buddhist centre about to begin an hour-long silent meditation.
The webinar “The Crisis, an opportunity to become age-friendly” was dedicated to local and regional authorities that have seen the current financial and economic situation as an opportunity to implement age-friendly initiatives in order to address some shortfalls and to turn challenges into new opportunities to become more age-friendly and sustainable.
Sean McWilliam (21), who is studying Product Design at Gray’s School of Art, has created a special frame, which sits under the cushion of a chair or sofa and allows the person to tilt gently forward to aid standing up.
The former Gordon Schools pupil explained: “All that is visible is two arms that have handles attached. As the user holds onto the handles and leans a little forward, the curvature of the design takes over and allows them to tilt forward.
Together with climate change, demographic change is one of the major challenges facing our European societies and an area where huge opportunities for economic growth, innovation and social justice can be developed in the coming decade. In that context, AGE Platform Europe would like to call on the President of the new College of Commissioners, who will have the power to reinforce the implementation of the European 2020 Strategy, to ensure fair and sustainable growth and prosperity of European citizens at every stage of life.
The brilliant news is starting at the age of 40 does not seem to “impair the cardiac benefits” as per the latest research. That even at the age of 40 the heart seems “amenable” to modification by endurance training. If you are over 40 including weights in your weekly activities are recommended the benefits of improving bone density and muscle mass – strength you will need in older age.
The evidence continues to mount that the way to protect against the common cognitive decline seen in too many senior citizens is to maintain a lifestyle of intellectual enrichment throughout life. A new study from the Mayo Clinic Study of Aging confirms it again in a report appearing in today’s edition of JAMA Neurology, and add that it may delay dementia as long as nine years, even in high risk seniors.
Assisted therapy technologies are becoming a bigger focus in response to an increasingly aging population across the world. People continue to enjoy longer life spans, and in Japan the elderly continue to make up a growing part of the population; in 2010, elderly individuals over 65 years of age made up 23.1 percent of that country’s population, and that number is expected to rise to 30 percent by 2025. This places quite a burden on primary care practitioners and other medical professionals who deal with health issues which pertain to the elderly.
Almost 90% of people aged 65 and over voted in the 2010 election, while in the 18-25 age group, turnout was just 65%. The political parties are already targeting older voters and speculation is growing over what their manifestos will propose on pensions, joining up health and social care services, winter fuel allowance and TV licences.
One of the most widely used painkillers could prevent premature ageing and death by combating inflammation, new research suggests.
We know already that faster ageing is often associated with activated markers of chronic inflammation. With these results we can now seriously start thinking about inflammation as a potential driver of accelerated ageing and how we might be able to delay it.
