Your Elderly Parents Failing Health: Is It Ageing Or A Treatable Condition? by Dr Peter Lipski
Have you ever experienced the frustration of watching your elderly relative or friend’s health and general function decline? Have you ever been told that it’s just “old age” that causes dizziness, falls, confusion, malnutrition, breathlessness, and swollen ankles in the older person? Have you ever been told “what do you expect- he is 89 years old you know?” Do you have elderly relatives or friends who are physically declining, slowing up, taking too many pills and struggling at home alone? Then you must read this book! Experienced Geriatrician Dr Peter Lipski explodes the huge myths and negative stereotypes about the elderly, and explains how even the frailest elderly can have dramatic improvements from comprehensive care, accurate diagnoses, attention to detail, getting the simple things right, and treating reversible factors. Dr Lipski explains in simple language that it is never too late to treat an older patient! The greatest risk to the health of the elderly is ignorance, blaming “old age” for everything and presenting late to the Doctor. Dr Lipski explains the warning signs of common Geriatric Syndromes that most families and carers of the elderly have to deal with including falls, dizziness, memory loss, confusion, dementia, swollen ankles, breathlessness, chronic pain, urinary incontinence, diabetes, adverse drug reactions, malnutrition, the impaired older driver, anemia and when to get help. This book will affect everyone on the planet, as we all have either an elderly Mother or Father, Brother or Sister, Uncle or Aunt or other elderly relative or friend or neighbor. There is one thing for sure, we are all getting older and living longer! At some stage in life we will all become “old”! If we get the right attitude to older age and the right medical care, then we all can have better quality of life.
