  2. Coping with Early Onset Dementia

    Coping with Early Onset Dementia

    Paperback / 128 pages / 2011 / Around one in 1000 people (under 65) in the UK are living with dementia, about one-third of whom have Alzheimer's. These conditions are sometimes misdiagnosed as stress or depression. Younger people have particular difficulties, such as work, dependent children, and financial commitments. They may be physically fit and have to deal with lack or understanding and social stigma caused by 'odd' behaviour. They may find it hard to cope with losing their faculties at such a young age. They may not know where to turn for help - or even if specialised help is available. This book will provide some of the answers. Learn More

    Understanding Superannuation/ Qualitative Investigation with Employers/ consumers/ industry

    Report 2010/ March/ Superannuation is an important concept and is critical (given the current aging population) to take the strain off of government for providing for people in their retirement. Compulsory superannuation is seen as a forced savings plan, especially beneficial to those who would be less likely to plan and save for their retirement, such as those on low incomes and young people. Fundamentally, while engagement levels differ considerably by age group, there was a clear sense that the system is working well in most respects, but young people remain high disengaged. Learn More

  10. Asthma among older people in Australia

    Asthma among older people in Australia

    Asthma in older Australians is distinct in many ways. The presence of comorbid conditions makes the management of asthma in older people more complex. The disease itself is also more persistent and severe than in the younger ages. Over 92% of the 402 asthma deaths in 2006 were among people aged 45 years and over, with many being associated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or bronchiectasis and acute respiratory infections. This report highlights key national data relating to asthma in older Australians. Learn More
