Special Issue "The Challenges of Caring of Neurodegenerative Diseases"
A special issue of Geriatrics (ISSN 2308-3417).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2016).
Neurodegenerative diseases in the elderly are on the increase globally and are challenging problems shared by many developed countries, as well as developing ones. Development of aged care services to face the increase of an older population can be a difficult problem for many developing countries without past experience to work from. Sharing of knowledge and lessons between developing and developed countries is a good way forward.
This Special Issue, therefore, focuses broadly on a wide range of issues relevant to aged care services development (acute care, subacute care and long term care) in developed and developing countries. Issues facing China and Australia will be used as examples but invitation for submission will not be limited to these two countries. These issues include how neurodegenerative diseases, such as dementia, are being dealt with at hospital and in the community, how does families in China find caring for older generation (given that China has an ageing population and a reduced number of younger population staying at home). How Australia has coped with similar problems in the last few decades and so on. Submitted manuscripts describing current research, review articles and communications in any of these areas are sought.
