This study aimed to understand how adult children sustain caring for persons with dementia (PwDs) within their family and formal care contexts in Canada. Half-day focus groups were conducted with adult daughters and adult sons in Toronto, Canada. Using constructivist grounded theory, we examined both substantive concepts and group dynamics. Sustaining care was interpreted as an indefinite process with three intertwined themes: reproducing care demands and dependency, enacting and affirming values, and "flying blind" in how and how long to sustain caring (i.e., responding to immediate needs with limited foresight)...

CONCLUSIONS: The findings of this study indicate that practice-based, peer-facilitated, small-group workshops improve self-reported knowledge and confidence in dementia care and are well-received by GPs. Findings further suggest that similar educational approaches may be effective in supporting GPs in other areas of complex chronic care in general practice.

Neurologic manifestations are common in patients with antiphospholipid antibodies and include stroke, seizures, dementia, cognitive dysfunction, chorea, migraine, psychosis, and demyelinating disease. Many of these disorders mimic their idiopathic counterparts, yet treatment for antiphospholipid antibody –associated disease can be quite different compared with treatment of CNS disease not associated with these antibodies. For patients with antiphospholipid antibody–associated neurologic disease, anticoagulation or immunosuppressive therapy or both may significantly improve their symptoms. Thus, one should have ...

Older adults with cognitive complaints are vulnerable to dementia, physical impairments, and poor quality of life. Exercise and mental activity may improve physical function and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) but combinations have not been investigated systematically. The Mental Activity and eXercise (MAX) trial found that mental activity plus exercise over 12weeks improved cognitive function (primary outcome) in sedentary older adults with cognitive complaints.

Sadly, even after years of work to educate the public about any illness that affects the brain, a stigma remains. No matter that most, if not all, mental illnesses have a biological basis. No matter that people aren’t any more responsible for a brain illness than they are for other illnesses. The fact remains that whether the disease affects the brain occurs at a younger age in the form of depression or bipolar disease or an older age in the form of Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia, people with brain illnesses are often reluctant to acknowledge their illness for fear of being treated differently than oth...

García-Concha, S. Arevalo-Leal Vascular graft infections are a rare complication in this type of procedure. However, when they do occur, they usually have high morbidity, and even a high mortality. Proper identification and location is crucial for the appropriate and early management, whether medical or surgical, thus knowledge of the right tools is paramount. Nuclear medicine studies play an important r...
