MU Study Finds Health Benefits Of ‘Aging In Place’

The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) found the majority of older adults want to stay in their own home as they age. However, given the natural decline in health that comes with aging, some older adults may have to move into a nursing home or assisted-living facility to receive more intensive levels of care.

To help older adults live independently as they ‘age in place,’ researchers at the University of Missouri analyzed eight years of health data from 2011 – 2019 for more than 190 residents at TigerPlace, a senior living facility developed in partnership between the MU Sinclair School of Nursing and Americare Senior Living.

Researchers found that because registered nurse care coordinators were able to identify illnesses early and quickly in residents and provide them with appropriate care and services, most of the older adults living at TigerPlace were able to stay health

Covid-19 Was Third Leading Cause Of Death In The United States In Both 2020 And 2021

COVID-19 was the third leading cause of death in the United States between March 2020 and October 2021, according to an analysis of national death certificate data by researchers at the National Cancer Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health. The study appears July 5 in JAMA Internal Medicine.

During the 20-month period studied, COVID-19 accounted for 1 in 8 deaths (or 350,000 deaths) in the United States. Heart disease was the number one cause of death, followed by cancer, with these two causes of death accounting for a total of 1.29 million deaths. Accidents and stroke were the fourth and fifth leading causes of death. In every age group 15 years and older, COVID-19 was one of the top five causes of death during this period.

When the authors analyzed deaths in 2020 (March–December) and in 2021 (January–October) separately, they found that in 2020, COVID-19 was the fourth

Cedars-Sinai Experts Lift a 'Sinking' Brain

Russell Secker, now 67, was in Lake Tahoe in 2016 to run a series of ultra-distance races with his wife, Claire. The two had completed hundreds of marathons and races totaling thousands of miles. But this time was different. A terrible headache and shortness of breath took Russell, a native of England, out of the running.

"It was a multiday race and he did just one day, not even the full race, and when he finished, he was just gray," said Claire. "He looked awful. He felt awful. We were a bit worried about it, but we just thought maybe it was the altitude."

What the Seckers didn’t know was that Russell had a cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak, and that his symptoms were just beginning. It took a marathon journey through the British health system before he reached Wouter Schievink, MD, director of the CSF Leak Program at Cedars-Sinai, who used a novel technique to find and repair the leak

Take These 7 Healthy Habits On Your Summer Road Trip

You've spent the past couple of years staying fit and healthy despite the unusual circumstances of mostly staying home.

Now you're packing the car for a well-deserved summer road trip, fraught with fast food, convenience stores and hours of sitting around with unhealthy snacks within arm's reach.

Can you keep up the good work? You can, experts say – if you plan.

"The idea is to keep to one's routine and healthy habits as much as possible on the road, just as you do at home," said Dr. Ian Neeland, a preventive cardiologist and associate professor at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland.

Preventive cardiologist Dr. Puja Mehta concurs.

"Everything is in the planning," said Mehta, associate professor in the Emory Women's Heart Center at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta. "It can be a lot of fun and relieve a lot of stress along the way."

So while
