Summary, etc.:
This item will only play on a computer, not in a regular DVD player. Disc 1: Nutrition for Independent Elders (video): Focuses on community-based seniors who are relatively healthy. Highlights diseases that have an underlying nutritional origin, and the physiologic changes of aging that can negatively affect nutrition. Discusses the nutrients and fiber needed by aged individuals, along with a description of the Food Guide Pyramid and the Tufts' 70+ Pyramid. A brief discussion of supplements concludes the program. Disc 2: Nutritional Risks and Challenges (video): Focuses on nutritional challenges for elders, particularly those at risk for malnutrition or who are ill. Presents factors that contribute to malnutrition, and discusses assessment including screening tools and laboratory data. Illustrates interventions for those who are ill and at home or in healthcare facilities. Discusses also the role of the interdisciplinary team. Disc 3: Preventing Falls (video): Presents indicators that an older person is at risk for falling. Explores the common causes of falls — dehydration, medications, urinary problems, impaired visual function, and poor balance and gait — and interventions to minimize the risk. Highlights safety in the home and cites important prevention measures in the home and in healthcare facilities. Emphasizes that many falls are preventable and that fall reduction plans are the responsibility of everyone caring for the elderly. Disc 4: Elder Abuse (video): Discusses the growing problem of elder abuse. Describes the various types of abuse and details characteristics of abusers. Barriers to getting help, including social, cultural and medical factors are presented. Preventing abuse, and assessing and treating elders who have been mistreated are covered at length. Discusses various governmental agencies and services designed to help elders and their family caregivers prevent abuse before it occurs.
