We examined the mediating effects of cognitive function, social support, activities of daily living (ADL), and depression in the relationship between age and frailty in older people living in the community. This cross-sectional study used a structured questionnaire to collect data from a convenience sample of 200 pre-frail to mildly frail older adults in southern Taiwan. Structural equation modeling was used for data analysis, with data collected from July to November 2020. ADL mediated the relationship between age and frailty, while cognitive function also mediated the relationship between age and frailty, indicating that...

l Olveira María Teresa Anarte People with type 1 diabetes (T1D) are more likely to have depression than the general population and their prognosis is worse. Unfortunately, the characteristics of persons with T1D lead to inadequate screening for depression in this population. To aid in the detection of depression in this population, this study was undertaken to develop a depressive symptoms assessment instrument specific to patients with T1D and to examine its psychometric properties. A total of 207 people with T1D participated in this study. The reliability of the new scale was assessed using Cronbach&rsqu...

Social isolation and loneliness are robust predictors of negative physical and mental health in late life. Loneliness is associated with structural and functional brain abnormalities in the default mode network as well as circuits supporting attention and visual processing.1 With aging, cognition and physical health decline and the need for social support increases. During this vulnerable period, older adults experience shrinkage of social networks and increased social isolation.2 Among non-depressed adults, loneliness is associated with increased risk of physical problems and even mortality.

Biological changes that accompany the aging process are seen at cellular, organ, and organismal levels and are influenced by epigenetic, genetic, and environmental factors.1 These changes affect brain processes including cognitive, motor, and sensory functions.2 “Accelerated aging” describes when biological aging occurs more rapidly than expected. Individuals with the same chronological age may exhibit different biological ages, and the difference may have clinical implications.1 Accelerated aging, assessed using biological markers such as magnetic reso nance imaging (MRI) measures, telomere length, epigenetic ...
