    Hello:

    I am a Gerontological Nurse Practitioner, and as far as I am concerned you couldn't have picked a better topic!

    Go to the following sites for information.. I am not sure what you need:

    http://www.healthandage.com/syllabus/index.htm http://www.uncg.edu/nur/gerohome.htm
    http://www.pscw.uva.nl/sociosite/TOPICS/Aging.html
    http://www.aoa.dhhs.gov/naic/
    http://www.trinity.edu/~mkearl/geron.html
    http://www.americangeriatrics.org/

    These are just a few of my favorite destinations. There are some wonderful books out there, including the nursing text by Ebersole & Hess entitled "Toward Healthy Aging" it does a WONDERFUL job dealing with the 3 realms you must write on. Good luck with your essay!!!

    After 30 years sober my house burned down, kids were grown and gone, and I had one double screwdriver.
    Within a month I was drinking a fifth+ daily for two years.
    Had a pneumo rt. lung and after that was fixed (they were unaware of my being in DT's and treated me like a psych patient.
    When I finally came around (had to have booze brought into me in hospital or die) Haldol is not the drug of choice for detoxing alcohol patients.
    I didn't fit the profile for a psych admission and kept walking from detox so they figured I would qualify as a geriatric patient and locked me down with 8 Alzheimer patients.
    Eight days later I was sober and in the 3 months or so since getting out of detox I've made this site. http://homestead.com.retirednitenurse/index.html
