Summary:

Heavy drinking often goes unrecognized, and in a study of patients in primary care settings, adults are not consistently assessed for alcohol use. This makes it even more important for community health and home health nurses to recognize the symptoms of late-onset alcoholism. Early assessment and intervention have been linked to successful recovery in late-onset alcoholics. Information about alcoholism in seniors is important for every provider who has contact with older adults.

Objectives:

The goal of this late-onset alcoholism continuing education module is to update healthcare providers’ ability to identify and care for elderly patients in the community who have late-onset alcoholism. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Define late-onset alcoholism
  • List four signs and three events often associated with late-onset alcoholism
  • Describe an intervention strategy appropriate for the person with late-onset alcoholism

Good course for people not familiar with alcohol consumption in people over 60. The challenge is finding appropriate community resources and there were no suggestions about how to do that.
