Abstract

Em que medida os territórios exercem influência na gestão da velhice? Como qualificar as experiências de velhice a partir dos territórios? Estas são questões centrais nas discussões apontadas neste livro. Com base na etnografia desenvolvida em quatro diferentes territórios do concelho de Coimbra, a autora, num diálogo interdisciplinar humano e social, apresenta os territórios através de uma contextualização histórica e geográfica, ao mesmo tempo que elabora e aprofunda o debate sobre as relações estabelecidas entre as pessoas idosas e os territórios. O protagonismo e a pluralidade na velhice, presentes já no título, perpassam toda a obra, que traz as narrativas de pessoas idosas em relação aos seus próprios territórios, suas impressões, angústias, necessidades. Além de diagnosticar alguns dos principais problemas vivenciados pelos sujeitos idosos em suas relações com os territórios, o livro assume um caráter propositivo, apontando caminhos possíveis para a qualificação dessas relações.

Abstract

Institutional care for seniors offers a cultural repository for fears and hopes about an aging population. Although enormous changes have occurred in how institutional care is structured, the legacies of the poor house still persist, creating panicked views of the nursing home as a dreaded fate. The paradoxical nature of a space meant to be both hospital and home offers up critical tensions for examination by age studies scholars. The essays in this book challenge stereotypes of institutional care for older adults, illustrate the changes that have occurred over time, and illuminate the continuities in the stories we tell about nursing homes.

Abstract

In this special issue of Diagnostics, expert contributors have produced up-to-date research studies and reviews on various topics related to the diagnosis of dementia and cognitive impairment. The methods of the assessments discussed extend from simple neurological signs, which may be elicited in the clinical encounter, through cognitive screening instruments, to sophisticated analyses of neuroimaging and cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers of disease. It is hoped that these various methods may facilitate earlier diagnosis of dementia and its subtypes, and provide differential diagnosis of depression and functional cognitive disorders, as a prelude to meaningful interventions.
