Number of Long Term Care Beds by County Correlates with Caregiver Burden

High caregiver burden and low caregiver self-efficacy are associated with worse health outcomes for persons with dementia (PWD) and their caregivers. There is substantial variability in the availability of community resources for dementia patients in rural areas, which may impact these caregiver variables. The current study aims to determine differences in baseline caregiver burden and self-efficacy based on the availability of long term care beds, as a surrogate for community resource availability, in Nebraska.

SteinAbstractWe performed a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled trial with blueberry supplementation in older adults with mild cognitive impairment. We measured cognitive performance and parent (unmodified food form) anthocyanins and a suite of flavonoid-based phase 2 metabolites arising from anthocyanins in urine. The blueberry-treated group exhibited improved semantic access (p = 0.01) and visual-spatial memory ...

DiscussionThe Cognigram was well liked in waiting rooms of primary care settings. Assistance from a trained adult and clinic endorsement were keys to success. How the Cognigram performs in a geographically compact, population-dense global setting, such as Brooklyn with high vascular disease risk and a plethora of health disparities, is being tested.
