Answer the following questions an/or comment/reply to statement with 100 words or more.
1. The fragmentation that characterizes the network of social services continues to be an issue. What we are going to have to embrace is a shift toward a more integrated model of care delivery in order to support individual remaining at home. Accessing services is definitely a challenge. We have mentioned that both service gaps and lack of coordination threaten the viability of the aging-in-place model; however, I feel that transportation is vital to its success. The lack of transportation options available to many seniors continues to create a tremendous barrier to access to vital services. There are many urban and rural areas that have very inefficient and poorly designed transportation system, further compounding the isolation that accompanies the aging process. Both urban and rural city planning will require re-envisioning in order to create the necessary infrastructures required for the adoption of aging-in-place.
2. I think that we should make a distinction between service types across the LTC continuum:
Community-Based: Any service provided outside of a facility, including home health care, hospice care, and adult day care
Home Health Care: Skilled nursing and other health-related services provided in the consumer's home
Hospice Care: End-of-life care
Adult Day Care: Interim supervision and socialization.
3.What are some benefits of social programs? How do these benefits change with different populations?
4.How can education help with disease prevention?
5.Education programs that target older adults will be key to addressing preventable disease and increase their ability to age in place. In comparison to the rest of the population, older Americans are disproportionately affected by chronic diseases and conditions, such as arthritis, diabetes and heart disease, as well as by disabilities that result from injuries such as falls. More than one-third of adults 65 or older fall each year. Twenty-one percent of the population age 60 and older - 10.3 million people - have diabetes. Seven of every 10 Americans who die each year, or more than 1.7 million people, die of a chronic disease. The importance of creating community based programs that focus on prevention and positive behavior is going to be vital.
