If a younger person is diagnosed with dementia it is more unusual. There is less support for the younger person as it is not the norm, there are not many support groups available for the individual or their family. Young people’s needs are different to that of the older generation. Younger people are likely to have a larger group of friends that they socialise with and they may feel that this will be taken away. For a younger person it may be harder to accept the fact that they will need help with things such as personal care etc.
Summary: In this article, the reader is informed about how provisional ballots might delay results in close races of the presidential election for days. The reason behind the delays is the new ID laws that are still being challenged in court. The law mandates voters to show identification at the polls this fall. This causes a problem for many people, especially senior citizens. Elders, who are home most of the time, don't see the need in carrying ID, thus they don't own any.
These homeless people don’t want to help themselves. They rather live on the streets, beg for spare change and become not useful in our society. For these individuals being homeless is more of a lifestyle. Amazingly we would believe that these individuals would not be able to perform on a job due a physical inability, but it’s not; they choose not to. “These homeless prefer a life of no responsibility”.
Due to their severe disabilities and limited incomes, disabled adults have an extremely difficult time securing permanent housing in the competitive market. Ending homelessness for disabled people means building permanent, affordable housing specifically designed to meet their various needs. This group represents some of the most vulnerable people in our community and, when left on the streets, they represent significant expense to local taxpayers. The following are some of the other significant
This is why, most home health programs have standard health protocols, plans of care, interventions and routine evaluation measures to assist people suffering from moderate and severe dementia of late onset. But early onset Alzheimer’s disease affects people who are most likely young, employed, physically robust, sexually active and who have different leisure interests than their elder peers. Chaston D. (2010) suggests that: “numerous barriers continue to prevent younger adults with dementia accessing support and services. Their voices are not heard and their needs overlooked, often because nurses and other health professionals fail to recognise that dementia exists in this age group.” So, to make sure young individuals affected by dementia get the home care they need, “Care for memories initiative’s” focus is to create a comprehensive home care program for families whose first degree relative has been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease. Within this program, where the expertise of various professionals will be required, people suffering from early onset Alzheimer’s disease will be followed up regularly and according to their needs.
People are also reaching the time in their lives when medical problems tend to increase. When an adult reaches their senior years, some may need help at home, and as they age this tends to increase throughout the years. With America not being close as they were in the past, a lot of families are splitting up and leaving mom and dad alone. This creates a need for them when it comes to meals and physical care. So many people want to be independent but this actually creates a problem, more seniors are relying on community facilities or retirement homes to assist them with their daily living.
Geographical Barriers A geographical barrier is if a person lives in a rural area and is not able to drive, and there is no transport, preventing them from getting to the destination they need. For example, an elderly person may live in an isolated village with no public transport such as buses or trains and they are also unable to drive, therefore they can’t get to the hospital, meaning they will miss their appointment affecting their health. Financial Barriers Transport can also be linked to a financial barrier, because if a person has to pay for public transport to
Another issue is cost. Some people balk at having to pay emergency department prices after receiving nonemergency care. Obviously, if people are poor and have either no job or a low-paying job, then they may have trouble paying their ED bills. Plus, Medicaid and other forms of public coverage pay only portions of these bills. That reality coupled with the increasing volume of patients involved has caused some facilities to devise strategies for managing serial ED visitors.
I think that long test and other guidelines that are drawn out does interfere with the homeless want and need to seek help. If barriers were lower and the standards were lower more homeless people who seek help and want to get their alcohol problem under control. Not all the homeless want or need help but there r a lot of them that is a afraid of the outcomes that comes along with seeking help from housing agencies and government programs. If a person has a reason to do better they will at least try. The studies showed that if the barriers were lower more homeless would want to and will go to housing agencies for help instead of living on the streets.
For instance, electroshock therapy raised many questions such as, is this a safe form of treatment. It may sound scary but electroshock therapy is safe and is still used to treat patients today. After many years of research, author Ken Kessey wrote One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, a book that would help end the abusive treatments that happened throughout mental hospitals (ProQuest Staff) Along with the abusive treatment, many people suffering from severe mental disorders are not able to be admitted to mental institutions causing hospitals to be at maximum capacity; up to 108,000 emergency rooms are full. And of the hundreds of thousands of adults with severe mental disorders, only about forty percent received treatment (Szabo). Another treatment for mentally ill people is prescription drugs.
