On-Line Video Source With Interesting Topics Relevant to Senior Care

A recent, interesting "over the transom" email came from a continuing care provider group based in southern Texas.  Morningside Ministries was the sender, listing its "top 5" free videos, available on its website.  All five had interesting descriptions -- some addressing provocative and underdiscussed topics -- and when I took a look, I found them professionally presented, often with a welcome dash of humor to lighten the mood.  I could see using one or more to initiate class discussions, additional research or conversations.

Here's the list and the links, although in the interest of space, I've shortened the descriptions:

Caring for the Hateful Patient, Presenter:  Dr. Thomas Weiss, M.D.
Caring for a sometimes hateful or difficult patient can be difficult, and it can take a toll on the caregiver. .. Dr. Weiss will help you understand some of the reasons for this behavior as well as give you tips for dealing with the difficult situation.
Hoarding and Elders, Presenter:  Dr. Weiss, a geriatric psychiatrist, will provide an overview of hoarding and treatment.
Sexuality and Aging, Presenter: Timothy C. Hlavinka, MD – Urology - San Antonio, Texas Sexuality is important at any age.
Depression in Elders, Presenter:  Jason Schillerstrom MD, UTHSCSA School of Medicine, Psychiatry. A great discussion by one of our popular presenters on how depression is diagnosed, screening questions for depression and causes, outcomes and treatments.
SLUMS Examination & The Geriatric Depression Scale, Presenter:  Dr. David Smith M.D., FAAFP, CMD, Geriatric Consultants of Central TX. The Saint Louis University Mental Status (SLUMS) examination and the Geriatric Depression Scale is a screening tool for dementia developed by Saint Louis University geriatricians which identifies mild cognitive problems in the elderly.
