2010 Alzheimer's Disease progress report : a deeper understanding /

by The National Institute on Aging.

Publisher: Maryland, U.S. The National Institute on Aging 2011Description: 72 p.: ill.Other title: Alzheimer's Disease progress report.Notes: December 2011Summary: Alzheimer's disease is an age-related brain disorder that gradually destroys a person's ability to remember, think, learn, and carry out even the simplest of tasks. Alzheimer's is a type of dementia, a broad term for diseases and conditions that damage brain cells and, over time, impair brain function. Alzheimer's is associated with the breakdown of connections between brain cells, or neurons, and their eventual death. ; Typically diagnosed in people age 60 and older, in rare cases the disease can occur in people in their 30s and 40s. The first clinical signs of Alzheimer's disease include memory loss or other cognitive problems, such as trouble with language or decision making. As cognition continues to decline, people may also experience disturbing changes in personality and behavior. In the final stage of Alzheimer's dementia, people lose the ability to recognize family and friends and become totally dependent on others for their daily care. Ultimately, Alzheimer's is a terminal illness.(Introduction - Extract)Availability: No items available

A carrot and a big stick : understanding private health insurance and older Australians /

by Temple, Jeromey | National Seniors Productive Ageing Centre | Adair, Tim.

Publisher: Braddon, A.C.T. National Seniors Productive Ageing Centre 2011Description: PDF.Other title: NSPAC research monograph ; no. 1.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: October 2011 Bibliography pp. 36-38 Appendices pp. 39-46Summary: Healthy and productive ageing rests considerably upon timely and affordable access to health care. In the near future, expenditure on health care is expected to rise as population ageing places heavier demands on the public health care system. The Federal Treasury projects government expenditure on health care on those aged 65 and over is to increase seven-fold from 2010 to 2050, and 12-fold for the over 85 age group over the same period. To alleviate pressure from the public health care system, from the late 1990s the then Howard government introduced key reforms to the private health insurance sector, which sought to encourage Australians of all ages to purchase private health insurance. These reforms are colloquially referred to as 'carrots' and 'sticks': those that provide incentives to purchase, and disincentives not to purchase, private health insurance. This intervention was considered necessary because over time there had been an ongoing decrease in the number of younger, healthier persons with health insurance relative to older persons and those with more complex needs - a process health economists term as an adverse selection spiral.Availability: (1)
