Module 5 Disc A. QC.pdf Elderly abuse is any kind of abuse to any person 65 and over. The article stated elderly have experienced abuse in more than one way. Seniors have been abused financially, psychologically, physically, sexually, and through neglect. I have also found out that a lot of the abusing cases including elders are overlooked. This considers the fact a lot of people think that elders are helpless and therefore are useless to have proper care; or just that people are lazy. According to the article “only 45% of violent victimizations” against people 65 years and older were described to the police in 2015. A study performed in 2009, showed the major amount of abuse elders receive came from someone familiar to the victim. Abuse toward elders come from nursing homes as well; a study showed “more than 50% of staff admitted to engaging in physical violence, mental abuse, or neglect of older patients.” This is very sad. No one should be treated this way. Elders should definitely be informed on what is going on, so they are alert and aware when someone is trying to hurt them. B. I reviewed each approach and I found all of them to be true and relatable. Kübler-Ross identified five stages that people go through: (1) denial, (2) anger, (3) bargaining, (4) depression, and (5) acceptance. By contrast, the trajectories of grief approach suggests that people have more than one way of dealing with grief: (1) resilience, (2) recovery, (3) chronic dysfunction, and (4) delayed grief or trauma. The dying trajectory suggests that individuals do not move toward death at the same speed and in the same way. The task-based approach suggests that daily activities can still be enjoyed during the dying process and that fulfilling certain tasks makes the process of death easier on everyone involved (not just the dying person).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
