Cultural Issues - Their Impact on the He...alth and Care of the Ageing Person
Added: 22/05/2009
This chapter examines the issues of culture as they relate to aged care in the community. Culture can be contrasted with nature. We often assume that it is natural, or part of nature, to behave in spe...cific ways. We may even argue that we are born to hold specific kinds of values and to behave in specific ways. A whole range of possibilities, tendencies, opportunities and constraints are almost certainly built into our genetic code and hence are part of our birthright. But in fact our specific values and behaviors are learned, commencing virtually from the day we are born. Despite the current debate about how far gender differences are innate, there is indisputable evidence that these and many other personal differences are in fact learned and hence cultural in nature.
Mental Health and The Older Citizen
Added: 22/05/2009
Australians are growing older but there is no need for despair because most ageing people live independent and satisfying lives. Generally, the message is — use it or lose it! People who stay active... outside the home, and maintain their interests, remain well to an advanced age. However, it would be a mistake to believe that health problems do not increase with age. Despite improvements in nutrition and health care, and regardless of better living conditions, the fact is that most people who are ill are elderly. There are also psychiatric conditions that affect people as they grow older. Therefore, it is useful to consider the mental health problems that can occur in old age and the care required in the community. This chapter explores these issues from the unique perspective of citizenship.
Holistic Care: Why and How
Added: 22/05/2009
Health care professionals working with ageing people in a community setting deal primarily with the impact of the consequences of a disease or impairment. We assist the person — and their family and... support people — by helping them regain the overall balance in their life. But unless professionals have both the interest and skills to elicit what the impact and consequences mean to the person and their family, so that trust and an effective team approach will develop between the ageing person and the professional, a mutually satisfying outcome will not be achieved. This chapter explores the concept of integrated, holistic care and provides guidance on how this can be achieved.
