Abstract Objective Emergency department visits for self-harm and suicidal ideation have increased for U.S. older adults. The purpose of this study was to examine discharge disposition, clinical recognition of mental disorder, and 30-day follow-up mental health outpatient care of older adults treated in emergency departments for suicide attempt (SA), suicidal ideation (SI), or deliberate self-harm (DSH). Methods Retrospective cohort analysis using 2015 Medicare claims for adults ≥65 years of age ...
Abstract Objective As an analogy with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), the mild behavioural impairment (MBI) construct has been proposed as a diagnostic label for those presenting late-onset behavioural symptoms. To date, however, the clinical, cognitive and structural imaging features associated with an increased risk of conversion from MBI to dementia are poorly understood. Methods We retrospectively analysed the cognitive performance and structural brain MRI of 113 subjects, with a clinical f...
Abstract Most research on autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has focused on younger individuals, but there is increasing awareness that more must be known about the clinical needs and outcomes of older adults with ASD. This article reviews what is known about barriers to recognition in the elderly, the prevalence of ASD over the lifespan, outcomes in adulthood in comparison to the general population, co-occurring psychiatric diagnoses, and healthcare needs in this population.
ABSTRACT Objectives We examined the role of age discrimination in suicidal ideation among community-dwelling older adults in South Korea. Methods We analyzed adults aged 65 or older residing in Korea drawn from the 2014 Survey of Living Conditions and Welfare Needs of Korean Older Persons (total unweighted n = 10,279; total weighted N = 6,280,588). Data were analyzed using chi-square, t-tests, and logistic regression analyses. Results Results from logistic regression analysis showed that after a...
Abstract Objective We sought to determine whether the aspects of white matter connectivity implicated in major depression also relate to mild depressive symptoms in family dementia caregivers (dCGs). Methods Forty-one dCGs (average age=69 years, standard deviation=6.4) underwent a 7 Tesla 64-direction (12-minute) diffusion-weighted imaging sequence. We compared the fractional anisotropy (FA) of 11 white matter features between dCGs with (n=20) and without (n=21) depressive symptoms (Patient Heal...

ABSTRACT Objectives Cognitive and mood changes can affect postoperative recovery in hospitalized older adults undergoing major surgical procedures, but few studies have considered postoperative cognitive interventions to sustain such patients’ cognitive functioning and mood. The aim of this pilot study was to assess the efficacy of working memory training in improving cognitive functioning and mood, or emotional functioning, in older adults undergoing major surgery. Methods Thirty-four older adu...
