Long Term Services and Supports (health care)

Please respond two weeks’ discussion board. Each week has one topic and you should write one page for each topic. I have attached our textbook in case you need.

Week 2 Forum topic: Comparing LTSS (Long Term Services and Supports) and Health Care Options
1) What do you call people who receive LTSS? (I personally have no background in healthcare so answer this from my point of view)

2) Please list what you think are the goals/expected outcomes of health care.

Do the same for LTSS. Compare your answers.

To what extent are they the same or different?

How have they responded to the COVID-19 Pandemic?

Week 3 Forum topic: Olmstead Plan and Experience Nursing Home
1. List one state (you can choose one from Alaska, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri) and whether or not the state has an Olmstead Plan (most do). If so, what are they doing to comply with the Olmstead Decision?  Please briefly summarize don’t cut and paste from the website.

2. Please read this article and watch the video:

“Experiencing Life, Briefly Inside a Nursing Home” https://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/24/health/24nursing.html?pagewanted=all

“A Personal Lesson in Geriatric Care” https://www.nytimes.com/video/us/1247463989823/a-personal-lesson-in-geriatric-care.html

Then, answer one of these questions and respond to someone else’s post on another question. Try to keep it at maximum 10 students on each question as a primary post:

i. What do you think about this as a learning experience?

ii. The student is worried about what it will mean to residents when she leaves. Is this a concern? Why or why not?

iii. Would you be able to do this as a learning experience or even on a more limited basis as what the administrator did (bathing) in the following article? Why or why not?    “The Sense of An Ending” https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2013/05/20/the-sense-of-an-ending-2
