By Day 3 Post your explanation of the significance of addressing spirituality with the elderly. The significance of addressing spirituality with the elderly to determine the values and a clarification of values related to the older adults wishes concerning end-of-life care ( Holosko et al., 2013 ). It is important to know what the older adult’s beliefs are concerning in the use of heroic measures to being kept alive. It is also important to explore whether the older adult has designated healthcare surrogates and whether the appropriate documents are in place to permit their wishes ( Holosko et al., 2013 ). Identify a spiritually based intervention for this population. Describe the effectiveness of the use of spirituality with the elderly as found in the literature. There are many interventions that can be utilized when working with the older population. A spiritually based intervention that I have found for this population is Spiritual Intelligence-based intervention. A study was conducted on the effect of teaching spiritual intelligence principles on death anxiety among senior citizens living in retirement homes ( Aref Majidi, & Omid Moradi, 2018). There were two groups that consisted of 10 subjects per group.
