DISCUSSION 8: TRANSCULTURAL PERSPECTIVES IN THE CARE OF OLDER ADULTS
Nancy is an autonomous 85-year-old living in her own home. She
is hospitalized for atrial fibrillation and two new medications are added to
her regime. She has been forgetful and asks the nurse to repeat statements
several times. She doesn’t think she can remember to take all her medications
and asks if Medicare can pay for someone to come administer the medications
twice a day.
- Does Nancy meet the eligibility for home care visits?
- If so, how much (if any) would Medicare pay for home care for Nancy?
- What other options could be discussed with Nancy?
- Explore options for living in an independent or assisted living home. What are the costs involved?
