German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE),Greifswald,Germany.

ABSTRACTBackground:Frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) is the second-most common cause of young-onset dementia. Personality and behavior changes lead to high caregiver stress and burden, but little support is available. Our aim is to present the evidence on the characteristics, challenges and unmet needs of caregivers as well as on possible interventions. Read More

Respect, attentiveness, and growth: wisdom and beliefs about good relationships.

Int Psychogeriatr 2019 Apr 11:1-13. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Department of Psychology,University of Klagenfurt,Klagenfurt,Austria.

ABSTRACTObjectives:Human beings are social entities - our development occurs in and through interaction with others. Thus, it seems likely that relationships influence the development of wisdom, especially long-term intimate relationships in which couples share many important life experiences, and that wisdom, in turn, influences relationships. How wisdom relates to characteristics of intimate relationships has received little attention in the research literature. Read More

Short-term computerized cognitive training does not improve cognition compared to an active control in non-demented adults aged 80 years and above.

Int Psychogeriatr 2019 Apr 10:1-9. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Department of Psychiatry,Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai,New York, NY,USA.

ABSTRACTBackground:Older adults, especially those above age 80, are the fastest growing segment of the population in the United States and at risk for age-related cognitive decline and dementia. There is growing evidence that cognitive activity and training may allow adults to maintain or improve cognitive functioning, but little is known about the potential benefit in the oldest old. In this randomized trial, the effectiveness of a computerized cognitive training program (CCT program) was compared to an active control games program to improve cognition in cognitively normal individuals aged 80 and older.

Validation of the Cohen-Mansfield Agitation Inventory Observational (CMAI-O) tool.

Int Psychogeriatr 2019 Apr 10:1-11. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Centre for Dementia Research,Leeds Beckett University,Leeds,UK.

Objectives: Behaviours associated with agitation are common in people living with dementia. The Cohen-Mansfield Agitation Inventory (CMAI) is a 29-item scale widely used to assess agitation completed by a proxy (family carer or staff member). However, proxy informants introduce possible reporting bias when blinding to the treatment arm is not possible, and potential accuracy issues due to irregular contact between the proxy and the person with dementia over the reporting period.

Department of Community Mental Health,University of

With current projections indicating that the number of persons with dementia will continue to rise in the near future (Alzheimer Disease International, 2018), dementia is now recognized as a public health priority worldwide. Despite the great efforts and budgets invested; as of yet, no cure or highly effective treatments for dementia are available. Thus, the development of care practices to improve the wellbeing and quality of life of persons with dementia and their caregivers have become primary aims in the management of the condition (Ortega et al.

Positive psychiatry/psychology for older adults: a new and important movement but robust methodology is essential.

Int Psychogeriatr 2019 Feb;31(2):163-165

Research Department of Clinical,Educational and Health Psychology,University College London

Positive psychiatry and the related positive psychology are offering a much needed alternative framework through which to view the psychology of old age (Jeste et al., 2015). Traditional models of old age tend to approach the subject from a negative view point where themes of dependency and decline can be common (Cumming and Henry, 1961). Read More

Life satisfaction in older adults in Spain: beyond subjective health.

Authors:
Mark Rapoport

Int Psychogeriatr 2019 Feb;31(2):167-168

Psychiatry University of TorontoSunnybrook Health Sciences CentreOntario,Canada.

Many authors over the centuries have attempted to refute popular negative stereotypes about aging. In 2010, Depp, Vahia, and Jeste reviewed theories of success in aging (Depp et al., 2010), and some examples include Erikson's life stage theory in which he posited that successful resolution of earlier conflicts led to integrity in later life instead of despair; disengagement theory referred to the fact that in our culture, aging is associated with social isolation and reduced societal involvement - with this theory, successful adaptation to aging means coping with this normative disengagement in a healthy manner; activity theory referred to continued engagement in later life; continuity theory emphasized the role of adapting oneself to maintain consistency with earlier life roles.

Professional caregivers' knowledge, beliefs and attitudes about awareness in advanced dementia: a systematic review of qualitative studies.

Int Psychogeriatr 2019 Feb 21:1-11. Epub 2019 Feb 21.

Division of Psychiatry,University College London,London,UK.

ABSTRACTObjectives:Awareness can be defined as a response to, or evaluation of, an aspect of one's situation or internal state. Awareness becomes impaired as dementia progresses; however, the exact nature and degree of impairment in advanced dementia remains unclear. The extent to which caregivers understand or make assumptions about the level and nature of awareness in advanced dementia may have a significant impact on their ability to appropriately respond to and care for the person with dementia.

Differential item functioning in the cognitive screener used in the Longitudinal Aging Study in India.

Int Psychogeriatr 2019 Feb 20:1-11. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

Department of Epidemiology and Mental Health,Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore,MD,USA.

ABSTRACTIntroduction:The Longitudinal Aging Study in India (LASI) was initiated to capture data to be comparable to the Health and Retirement Survey (HRS) and hence used study instruments from the HRS. However, a rigorous psychometric evaluation before adaptation of cognitive tests may have indicated bias due to diversities across Indian states such as education, ethnicity, and urbanicity. In the present analysis, we evaluated if items show differential item functioning (DIF) by literacy, urbanicity, and education status. Read More

A network approach on the relation between apathy and depression symptoms with dementia and functional disability.

Int Psychogeriatr 2019 Feb 20:1-9. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

Department of Neurology, Amsterdam UMC,University of Amsterdam,Amsterdam,the Netherlands.

ABSTRACTBackground:Studies on the association between depression and dementia risk mostly use sum scores on depression questionnaires to model symptomatology severity. Since individual items may contribute differently to this association, this approach has limited validity.

Methods: We used network analysis to investigate the functioning of individual Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS-15) items, of which, based on studies that used factor analysis, 3 are generally considered to measure apathy (GDS-3A) and 12 depression (GDS-12D). Read More

Well-being in dementia: a cross-sectional dyadic study of the impact of multiple dimensions of strain on persons living with dementia and their family care partners.

Int Psychogeriatr 2019 Feb 6:1-10. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

College of Nursing & Center on Aging,The University of Utah,Salt Lake City, UT,USA.

ABSTRACTBackground and Purpose:The impact of dementia-related stressors and strains have been examined for their potential to threaten the well-being of either the person with dementia or the family care partner, but rarely have studies considered the dyadic nature of well-being in dementia. The purpose of this study was to examine the dyadic effects of multiple dimensions of strain on the well-being of dementia care dyads.

Methods: Using multilevel modeling to account for the inter-relatedness of individual well-being within dementia care dyads, we examined cross-sectional responses collected from 42 dyads comprised of a hospitalized patient diagnosed with a primary progressive dementia (PWD) and their family care partner (CP).

Distinct age-related associations for body mass index and cognition in cognitively healthy very old veterans.

Int Psychogeriatr 2019 Feb 5:1-5. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

Department of Psychiatry,Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai,New York, NY,USA.

ABSTRACTAssociations between high body mass index (BMI) and subsequent cognitive decline, reported in elderly averaging below age 75, become less consistent at older ages. We compared the associations of BMI with cognition in moderately old (ages 75-84, N = 154) and oldest-old (85+, N = 93) samples. BMI and cognition were assessed cross-sectionally in cognitively intact elderly (mean age = 84. Read More
