During the 1800s, and well into the 1900s, families took care of their own members whenever possible. Several generations lived together, with the younger generation taking care of the older and vice versa. Post 1900s, the joint family system started disintegrating.
Interview at least five people of varying ages from different families to know their perspective on disintegration of joint family system. Based on your interview findings and learning from your readings, respond to the following questions:
- What factors led to disintegration of the joint family system?
- What has been the impact of this disintegration on aging people and long-term care?
- Did disintegration have any benefits for health service organizations? Why or why not?
At the same time this shift occurred in the family structure, health care organizations were experiencing continuous changes in their operating styles. The long-term care system took some time to catch up with the changing nature of businesses. In the 1990s and early 2000s, long-term care was seen to experience several turbulent changes, particularly related to its operations, management, and structure. Research the South University Online Library and the Internet to find information on the changes in the long-term care system in the United States and respond to the following questions:
- How have the operations, management, and structural changes of the 1990s and early 2000s impacted the long-term care system today?
What are the strengths and weaknesses of the present long-term care system in the United States?

I believe labor donated to charity should be deductible as it is likely the hours you have donated are helping the charity to generate revenues/savings and I do believe there should be some type of benefit in helping these types of organizations. Although it does raise the issue of the definition of volunteering. As when you volunteer, you are more than likely doing so for no benefit other than simply to help others. However the chart below demonstrates the average number of hours that have been used volunteering. In 2013 alone more than 63 million volunteers provided more than 163 Billion dollars worth of free labor had they been paid. I believe that these volunteers should have gotten some type of benefit (although this benefit could be small) for simply helping others.

My discussion post was as follows:What is leadership? Leadership is defined to be the action of leading a group of people or an organization. Who has the ability to have leadership skills? The answer here is simple. Everyone, however not everyone demonstrates these skills. Each of these leadership models have similar traits, however the one that is used and more recognized is the Situational Leadership Model. It is very similar to the Fiedler’s Leadership model. For this case study the situational leadership model is used or would be used. With the situational leadership model, it uses ways of diagnosing, adapting, communication, and advancing. The benefits of using this model are; awareness, effective communication skills, organization flexibility, creates productivity, creates committed workers, and drives behavior change for better business results (Nahavandi, 2015).
The first part of the paper, Case Study Evaluation (65%), is an analysis of the disease process in general. All elements in the grading rubric must be addressed in the paper and discussion should be based on current best practices supported by citations from current literature such as systematic reviews, meta-analyses, research-based clinical practice guidelines and randomized controlled trials. The use of evidence-based practice should be evident throughout the paper by using at least 2 references for each discussion topic. The reference list should only include those references cited in the paper. A minimum of 3 current peer-reviewed references (research articles or systematic reviews) less than 5 years old must be used to demonstrate the content reflects the most current research. Textbooks and websites (Up-to-Date, MedScape, et al) can be used but should not constitute more than 25% of resources in the reference list. The second part of the paper, Management Plan Synthesis (20%), is the application of the information from the analysis of the disease to a patient scenario. Utilization of the SOAP format is required including subjective (patient interview) and objective (physical examination) data collection required to fully evaluate the patient with the specific disease process. In addition, the student will identify 5 differential diagnoses that present in a similar fashion and discuss how each will be ruled out using evidence/ data gathered from the interview, physical examination, and diagnostic testing. Finally, the student will develop a comprehensive medical treatment plan which focuses on treatment of chronic disease, prevention of disease progression, and promotion of health and quality of life. This will include pharmacological therapy, non-pharmacological therapy, multidisciplinary referrals, and patient education. The treatment plan should be supported with rationales cited from evidence-based literature with at least 3 current peer-reviewed references (less than 5 years) to support the plan APA Format and general writing skills accounts for 15% of the grade.APA formatting should beused throughout the paper including the title page, headings, pagination, in-text citations and references. General writing skills including correct use of spelling, grammar, and punctuation will be evaluated. The paper should not exceed 15 pages excluding title page and reference pages Grading of the assignment will follow the grading rubric below.
