Making Meaning of Integrated Care during a Pandemic: Learning from Older Adults
Conclusions: Throughout the pandemic, most participants retained their resilience and continued to derive meaning from various sources, including their families, careers, interests, and attitude toward life.Clinical implications: Older adults may experience enhanced physical, emotional and social health from engaging in community-based programs focused on exercise and overall wellness. Furthermore, meaning-making has the potential to buffer the harmful effects of stress and traumatic events on the physical, emotional and social health of older adults.PMID:34100336 | DOI:10.1080/07317115.2021.1933291 (Source: Clinical Gerontologist)

Resistance to Eating in People with Dementia Living in Long-term Care Facilities: Gaps between Common and Good Practices
Conclusions: Resistance to eating is a common situation faced by professionals. Nonetheless, there is not a common procedure to deal with this situation. Resistance to eating was seen more as a problem to be eradicated than a behavior to be understood.Clinical implications: Staff development initiatives are necessary in relation to mealtime situations. They should consider work position and competencies needed by assistant carers.PMID:34100339 | DOI:10.1080/07317115.2021.1933292 (Source: Clinical Gerontologist)

Emotional Resilience of Older Adults during COVID-19: A Systematic Review of Studies of Stress and Well-Being
Conclusions: Older adults in this review generally have lower stress and less negative emotions under quarantine than younger adults. It is unknown how this compares to pre-pandemic measures. More representative and longitudinal studies are needed to measure the impact of quarantine on the mental health of older adults.Clinical Implications: As existing scales may not capture the full extent of pandemic psychological effects on older adults, clinicians must vigilantly monitor older adults' mental health.PMID:34080527 | DOI:10.1080/07317115.2021.1928355 (Source: Clinical Gerontologist)

Conclusions: Intimate and sexual expressions of residents can put care relations under pressure.

Don't Bother Trying, They Won't Do It! Effect of Responsive Behaviors on the Montessori Assessment System
Conclusions: The presence of responsive behaviors as assessed by the NPI does not limit MAS administration, despite minor influence on MAS score and completion time.Clinical implications: The MAS may be applied to persons with moderate to severe dementia presenting responsive behaviors. Assessment of preserved abilities can greatly improve the design of person-centered care plans in this population.PMID:33998979 | DOI:10.1080/07317115.2021.1924333 (Source: Clinical Gerontologist)
