C) “Most of the older clients on the unit will have come to us from nursing homes.”
D) “It’s reassuring that people are starting to show more concern for older adults than in decades past.”
Ans: D
Feedback:
The formation of the Administration on Aging, enactment of the Older Americans Act, and the introduction of Medicaid and Medicare all occurred in 1965. Since that time, society has demonstrated a growing concern for its older members. Myths about older people include the belief that Social Security ensures them an adequate income, that they do not have to pay for medical care, and that most older adults live in nursing homes.
