Read chapter 19 of the class textbook and review the attached PowerPoint presentation. Once done, answer the following questions;
- Mention and discuss the Healthy People 2020 wellness goals and objectives for older adults.
- Define and discuss the aging process and the demographic characteristics of the elderly population in your community.
- Identify and discuss nursing actions that address the needs of older adults.
- Mention and discuss health/illness concerns common to the elderly population.
As stated in the syllabus present your assignment in an APA format word document, Arial 12 font . A minimum of 3 evidence-based references besides the class textbook no older than 5 years must be used and quoted according to APA guidelines and must be from a gerontology journal. You must post two replies to any of your peers sustained with the proper references no older than 5 years in two different days to verify attendance and as well make sure the references are properly quoted and mention to whom you are replying to. The reply is a comment to your peer, not an extension of what you posted in your assignment. What I mean is that you canâ€™t post in your replies the same that you posted in your assignment. A minimum of 800 words is required. Please make sure to follow the instructions as given and use either spell-check or Grammarly before you post your assignment. I will also pay close attention to spelling and/or grammar. Please review the rubric attached to the lecture. You must present the assignment according to how it is posted, answering the questions by number and essay-style assignments will not be accepted unless otherwise specified. Iâ€™ve been grading a lot of assignments with quite a few spelling/grammar errors. As a BSN student, you should be able to present an assignment according to APA and without errors. This reflects our University.
