Health Issues of Seniors Discussion

I’m studying for my Health & Medical class and need an explanation.

Seventeen per cent of the residents residing in Mission Viejo and its nine surrounding communities are aged 65 years and older (US Census Bureau, 2020), and these numbers are projected to increase by the year 2050 as the current population ages and life expectancies increase. The area has a number of senior living communities, skilled nursing facilities, and assisted living facilities and the medical centers available to them, Mission Viejo Hospital and Children’s Hospital at Mission, offer acute care with limited services tailored for its senior population. The proposed Golden Age Hospital will provide a health care facility designed to meet the growing need for inpatient and outpatient geriatric health care services, bringing in the required specialists, services, and programs to meet the senior community’s unique health care needs.
