(Critical) This program, part of a series on gerontological nursing, discusses the effect of relocation on the elderly, stresses the importance of thorough preparation, and compares a variety of relocation alternatives. A dialogue with Rosalynn Carter initiates this overview of the various aspects and stages of relocation. Although it presents no new or unique information, this is an excellent, comprehensive review of the subject. This well paced, technically superior production is highly recommended for use.
Aging : sensory losses ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
(Critical) This program illustrates deterioration in the efficiency of sensory functions with age and discusses the effect this has on older people. Age-associated structural changes in ears, eyes, and nervous system are compared with normal functioning. Environmental factors are identified that can be manipulated to minimize these alterations. Various approaches for dealing with the elderly having visual and auditory limitations are presented but assessment by the nurse is not detailed adequately. This program is recommended as introductory nursing instruction for working with the elderly.
