concepts of health and wellness 1

The elderly often function on a health continuum that ranges from premature death to a high level of (mental and physical) wellness. Although the nurse may not be able to reverse a patient’s current health status, identifying and developing a healthcare plan may help the client live at their highest metabolic, physical, and nutritional levels.


Consider the health and wellness challenges faced by the elderly. Develop a nutrition and wellness program for an elderly person in your social circle.

Develop an 8 to 15 slide Microsoft PowerPoint presentation and address the following:

  • Metabolic health challenges and needs
  • Physical health challenges and needs
  • Nutritional challenges and needs
  • Mental health challenges and needs (include social needs)
  • Propose a health program
  • Propose a nutritional program

Please note that you will be expected to present this in class.
