1.Discuss old age and the baby boomer
Baby boomers are the demographic group born during the post–World War II baby boom, roughly between the years 1946 and 1964. This comprises people who are between 53 and 71 years old in 2017, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Baby boomers are upcoming retirement and this will become a health crisis this is because Leaders in the healthcare industry have been working exceptionally hard in trying to find a solution. Unhappily their efforts are only making minimal impacts in growing the nursing personnel. Healthcare companies have tried everything from rising salaries to offering shocking sign on bonuses. Money does not seem to be the key to get people attracted in nursing. Survey a group of nurses and most will not protest about their salary. What they will complain about is the day-to-day loads that they face. Nurses are overworked and carry larger and larger patient loads as a result of deficiencies.
2.List several generational, religious, and cultural differences between the 30-year-old health care professional and the elderly patient
In the religious aspect many of the health care specialist are very savvy in their field of study but they are not trained on handling the spiritual aspect of their patients. The cultural differences
Differences between patients’ and physicians’ perceptions of illness can result in poor communication and substandard treatment results. These differences are more likely when the patient’s cultural background is dissimilar from the physician’s.
Generational differences are evident because elderly patients have a perception that this doctors do not have enough experience to handle them and hence prefer those who are a bit old.
