DEMOGRAPHICS AND YOUR COMMUNITY
(COLORADO) Using the epidemiological, census, and population data you located earlier in this unit, analyze the implications for services in your community. Focus on one or two specific areas and explain what the data tells you and what significance that has for the services or programs available in your area.
- Are the services at risk of being overwhelmed by anticipated needs?
- Are they providing what the community needs?
Be sure to address ethnic and cultural issues that you identify as well as broader concerns.
Please remember, this is a discussion, but it is a scholarly discussion. As such, your posts should reflect having read and applied the course material. Your discussion posts (initial and peer response posts) should contain in-text citations and reference lists, and should follow APA style and format.
Read the postings by other learners and respond to at least two by elaborating on their observations. Acknowledge what is unique about their demographics and how the demographics reflect the older adult population.
Peer responses need to be substantive and reflect having read and applied course readings. Response posts need to contain in-text citations and a reference list in APA style and format.
