Review the Healthy People 2020 objectives for the older adult. Of the objectives listed for the older adult, which do you feel is most important? Be sure to include examples and references to support your response.
After reviewing the healthy people 2020, “their goal is to Improve the health, function and quality of life of the older adults” (HealthyPeople2020). I feel that the most important objective for the older adults are to decrease the rate of emergency department visit due to falls. As adults increase in age they become more at risk for falls which can lower their quality of life or lead to death. Falls usually occur for one of these reasons chronic illnesses, impaired vision, environmental hazards and medications. “Every year, 3 million older people are treated in the emergency department for fall injuries” (CDC, 2017). We can prevent falls by increasing awareness of falls and educating patients and their families about ways to prevent falls. There are ways to prevent falls such as having your doctor review your medication, have an eye exam once a year and participating in activity for strength and balance. Also make your home safer by making sure your home has adequate lighting and getting rid of things that will cause falls.
