Although there has been a decline in the number of homeless Veterans since this announcement, the current glide path suggests they will miss the goal unless services are expanded and more success is achieved. In fact, in 2012, VA served more than 240,000 Veterans who were homeless or at risk of becoming homeless—21 percent more than the year before. These numbers suggest the VA is becoming more effective and is serving more of the demographic in need, but it also paints an unacceptable picture of nearly a quarter million Veterans who were faced with life on the streets that year. More disturbing than this is the fact the percentage of homeless female Veterans with children increases each year, despite current VA

n.d.). The health care delivery system (HCDS) in the United States has been experiencing a historical transition, since the president sign the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). High-quality patient care relies on having a well-educated nursing workforce.

By 2005, this population had grown to more than 2.8 million (Kent, 2007). Black immigrants have also contributed substantially to the growth of the country’s overall black population, accounting for more than 17 percent of its growth in the 1990 sand more than 20 percent in the 2000” (p. 817). “Many contemporary immigrants arrive in the United States with relatively low levels of education, little or no health insurance coverage, and low incomes. Despite these characteristics, which are typically associated with poor health, some immigrant subgroups upon arrival in the country report better health than their U.S.-born counterparts” (Hamilton, 2014, p.
Furthermore, the type of examples Kluger, Aciman, and Steinmetz utilize involve strong data and facts to support their piece and make it more convincing. To illustrate, they describe, “ Just since 2004, the share of Americans who identify themselves as optimists has plummeted from 79% to 50%, according to a new Time poll. Meanwhile, more than 20% of us will suffer from a mood disorder at some point in our lifetimes and more than 30% from an anxiety disorder. By the time we 're 18 years old, 11% of us have been diagnosed with depression” (Kluger, Aciman, and Steinmetz 2). Given that their audience consists of more educated, well-read people, this evidence is particularly useful due to the fact it contains numbers and data that prove the writer 's’ main point and persuade their readers.
Perception of aging and BSN core competencies discussion My perception of aging and senility were different when compared with the facts on aging pre-assessment quiz. The prevalence of individuals that have symptoms of dementia is much higher than I believed. Another misconception I had was believing elderly people were happier than younger individuals. Honestly, the thought of retiring, experiencing the freedom to spend time with loved ones, and enjoying hobbies would lead me to think elders would be happier than younger people. I was also pleasantly surprised to see that only 5% of people that are older than 65 years reside in long-term facilities.
Between 2010 and 2050, the United States population ages 65 and older will nearly double, the population ages 80 and older will nearly triple, and the number of nonagenarians and centenarians—people in their 90s and 100s—will quadruple. (KFF, 2015) Trustees of Medicaid are forecasting that in 2024, Medicaid will start running out of funding. Although there is little evidence in the trustee’s projections it is still something that needs to be looked as more and more people are getting older and are needing benefits vs a number of people putting in. Every day there are 10,000 people turning 65 or older. Now that the Affordable Care Act has been implemented it is allowing for elderly to be able to get yearly exams and wellness checks.
The average life expectancy has increased over the last century; the average life expectancy for women is 80 years while men are expected to live to about 75 years old. The population of older adults over the age of 65 years is expected to increase from 35 million in 2000 to 70 million by the year 2030.

The lifestyles that we chose to live have a large impact positively and negatively in the way we age.

Therefore, they concluded that the memory score matched the views of attitude people have—the positive view, the less memory
