Client’s culture

Specific and unique needs of each age level

 

PTS:   1

 

  1. Explain what is meant by, “Health professionals encourage the elderly clients to take part in activities as much as possible.”

 

ANS:

Some suggested responses in any order:

 

Elderly clients may need:

 

1. additional intellectual activities to sharpen their minds.
2. additional physical or occupational activities to help them remain independent longer.
3. to be assessed to see if they need referrals to senior centers, adult daycare, or assisted living.

  1. What does the following sentence mean?

Remember that some diseases may affect cognition.

 

ANS:

Answers may vary.

 

Cognition refers to processes by which a person knows the world and interacts with it. It involves the way in which the brain learns and interprets information.

 

Health professionals must specifically address clients’ cognitive changes so that clients will remain physically and mentally active yet safe in their environments.

 

PTS:   1

 

  1. Explain the importance of comfort for the elderly.

 

ANS:

Answers may vary.

 

In the reception area, furniture must be comfortable and at a height for the elderly to use and easily get in and out of. Furniture arms may alleviate pain and discomfort. Pillows may help with support.

 

Handrails in restrooms provide safety and support as well as allowing them autonomy.

 

Adjustable exam room tables or adaptations may be helpful for ease of getting on or off them.

 

Other age groups generally do not have such physical challenges and therefore do not require such comfort adaptations.

 

PTS:   1

 

  1. Health professionals must recognize their role as members of the health care team when caring for adult clients. Explain what this means.

 

ANS:

Answers may vary.

 

Adults may have more than one primary health provider, so health professionals are members of a team rather than the “whole team” themselves.

 

For example, women may receive care from an OB/GYN at the same time as an internal medicine physician and a surgeon.

 

Obviously, health professionals are members of a team in their employment environment, too!

 

PTS:   1

 

  1. How can health professionals help adolescents feel a sense of worth?

 

ANS:

Answers will vary. Suggestions include:

 

By providing time to listen to them

 

By helping them resolve the tensions they feel

 

By establishing limits that offer security

 

PTS:   1

 

  1. Name one way health care professionals can impact the morality of clients.

 

ANS:

By discussing a healthy lifestyle as part of normal development at any age level.

 

Positive reinforcement, praise, and verbal explanation should be used by the health professional. They can strive to be positive role models to any age group.

 

PTS:   1

 

  1. Explain the importance of health professionals knowing their feelings when they are caring for children.

 

ANS:

Children know almost instantly whether or not you like them and/or whether or not you feel secure taking care of them.

 

Health professionals need to know and understand this age group and continue working with children until they feel comfortable working with children.

 

If children are “unlovable,” it is sometimes difficult for health professionals to keep their feelings in check. Obviously, this can be true of any age group, yet children need compassion and nurturing so that they can leave the clinic knowing professionals care about them no matter how they behaved.

 

PTS:   1

 

  1. Explain why it is important to see this particular age level as soon as they arrive.

 

ANS:

Children and their parents, because they become anxious quickly—both parent and child! Sick children may become irritable and misbehave, making the reception area a very uncomfortable place for other clients who are waiting for appointments.

 

Health professionals should not take childrens’ misbehaviors and actions personally; rather, get to know the child and understand him or her.
