Patients are indeed often dismissed in a highly motivated state from inpatient rehabilitation but their compliance decreases quickly. Reasons for this include the changes back to the home environment and the lack of feedback. As the patient is not under permanent supervision of medical experts,

Barriers in Health and Social Care: The barriers in health and social care are physical barriers, psychological barriers, financial barriers, geographical barriers, cultural/language barriers and resource barriers.

The Opportunity Center houses male and female participants from the ages of 18 years and older. A pattern of mental health illness, lack of jobs, low income, and lack of education has been identified among the residents of the homeless shelter. Typically, women are more likely to leave the shelter sooner than man because of their motivation to succeed in life and likelihood to be more pro-active in assisting job fairs as well as health fairs offered by the shelter. Also, the lack of medical compliance is more evident among men than females, since most men denied a need for medication, or are in denial that they have been diagnosed with a mental illness.
Our capstone project is aimed at combating the lack of basic healthcare and basic service in the poor and homeless. The biggest factors toward poor health are discriminatory behavior towards homeless communities and insufficient clothing to combat weather. According to a study done by Diversity and Equality in Health and Care, “people who are homeless are frequently treated as objects or dehumanized by nurses.” A comprehensive study done by NCBI and the city of Toronto confirms this behavior in cities throughout Canada and the United States.
Depression and other similar disorders lead to one attempting to commit or committing suicide. There are several warning flags for suicide, such as self-harm and suicidal ideation. In the LGBT community, it is believed that the increased stress is resulting from external and internalized homophobia and transphobia resulting in these self-destructive behaviors being so much more prevalent in the younger community than they are in the heterosexual cisgender community (McDermott p.815). Gay and bisexual men are four times more likely to ideate and attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers; lesbian and bisexual women are twice as likely (Mereish p.1). Transgender individuals are at an even higher risk, as half of the transgender participants reported suicidal ideation, and a quarter of them had reported attempting suicide (Johnson p.56).
Many Americans were led to believe that the introduction of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in 2009 would put an end to disparities in health care access. While it did improve the situation for a small percentage of the population there are still many Americans who lack access to good quality health care. Health care access in America is determined by money and those in lower socioeconomic groups frequently tend to miss out on adequate care. In a recent health care report by the national health research foundation Kaiser Family Foundation, it was noted “health care disparities remain a persistent problem in the United States, leading to certain groups being at higher risk of being uninsured, having limited access to care, and experiencing poorer quality of care” (Kaiser Family Foundation). The current health care
In the prison system, inmates rely on prison guards for essential goods, which is why the women feel they have no choice but to suffer their abuse. Because these women feel helpless, there are no truly accurate statistics that can tell the specific amount of black women abused in prison. The lack of information is also because most jails don’t keep proper records of the various abuses women report (Isaac, Lockhart, Williams). This proves that these prisons do not care about the well being of these women, nor do they care that the sexual offenders are properly punished.
Family homelessness is a growing social problem affecting families in every state. Nationwide, 85% of providers have seen family homelessness increasing in recent years(“The Facts About Family Homelessness”). Homelessness is often looked over, when someone sees a homeless person on the street they only see what they want to see it is unlikely that a person actually thinks about how the person became homeless. Women and children affected by homelessness is usually seen as abstract and would not be as conventional as a homeless man. This injustice to the women and children is unacceptable and using civil disobedience will help diminish the fire of ignorance.
The reason being that in most cases, the mentally disturbed tend to undergo very long periods of depression or hyperactivity. At the same time, these people won’t be in their full thinking ability; so they can easily vandalize the house property within a short space of time when they are frustrated. Therefore, when dealing with the chronically homeless, it is vital to start by seeking treatment and medication for those with mental disorders. The reason why medical treatment should be a priority is that untreated mental disorders ultimately lead to homelessness. Therefore, to reduce the number of such people from among those who have the streets for a home, I think it is crucial that we as a society come in and help in funding for their
Minors in care show certain themes that can damage their reputation in adulthood. Acknowledged by Ainsworth and Hansen, movement of homes while being in care puts children at risk to someday be placed as a juvenile offender, become a parent at a young age, and to endure poor educational achievement. Thirty-eight percent of males and thirty-nine percent of females in detention have a history of being in foster care services (89). Ainsworth and Hansen also report that there are a number of fosters who are under seventeen years old and are pregnant or getting someone else pregnant (89). Allen S. Barton and James S Vacca, authors of ¨Bring Back Orphanages-
As discussed in the lecture titled Poverty and Homelessness, common health problems in the homeless population included high prevalence of mental illnesses and substance abuse, higher rates of STI, increased morbidity to cancer, diabetes, HIV infections, and cardiovascular diseases. Other health concerns include lower birth weighting infants and higher preterm births in the homeless mothers’ and children population. Nurse Georgia and the task force should be aware that roughly 40% of homeless people constitute families with children. Homeless children are more likely to be born premature or low birth weight, they are likely to be behind on immunizations, likely to suffer from upper respiratory tract infections and ear infections, they are
Homelessness amongst the youth is a serious issue in America. Homeless youth, sometimes are referred to as unaccompanied youth. Unaccompanied youth are children and youth who are homeless and on their own that is not living with their families. This group includes runaway youth, youth whose parents encouraged them to leave or locked them out of their home, and independent youth from families where irreconcilable conflicts or loss of contact have made it impossible for them to return home ("Homeless Children and Youth," 2015).
