Assignment: Healthcare Social Isolation 
Assignment: Healthcare Social Isolation
ORDER NOW FOR AN ORIGINAL PAPER ASSIGNMENT : Assignment: Healthcare Social Isolation
1) You are a healthcare or other type of professional working with aging adults. After reading about the growing concern of social isolation among that population, respond to the following prompts:
Describe three to four predisposing factors and conditions that contribute to isolation.
With these factors in mind, formulate an “out-of-the-box” strategy to reduce social isolation among aging adults, as well as explain how the strategy would work. 500 words.
2) Imagine you are a senator preparing for this year’s policy agenda. You must rank, from the highest priority to the lowest priority, the following social aging issues or concerns to determine which issue should be your major focus. Include an explanation for your ranking choices that can be understood by ordinary constituents as well as make sense to professionals in the field.
Fall prevention program
HIV/AIDS interventions
Social isolation
Mental health services gap
500 words.
3)Imagine you are 98-years-old and living alone but are quite independent. One day you suffer from a fall and sustain terrible injuries. The surgeon tells you that you have only a 20% chance of a surviving repair surgery but she is willing to perform the surgery. After reading Bosk and Neuman (2016), write about the following in your journal paper:
Consider the debate about quality of life versus quantity of life. What would you recommend regarding balancing quality and quantity to a 98-year-old? Cite how the readings support your choices.
In the second section of your journal entry, change your perspective from that of the patient to that of the patient’s adult child. Consider the same information you’ve read, but now make your deliberations on the case study as if it instead involved your parent who needed the surgery. Again, use the readings to support your choices about how you would strike the balance of quality and quantity from the viewpoint of being an adult child. How is your viewpoint impacted by focusing on your own parent?
In the final section of your journal paper, consider this issue from the perspective of a public policy-maker. Do you believe that public policy should determine whether our healthcare system focuses on quality or quantity of life? An example of this would be if Medicare should cover the cost of a hip replacement for a 98-year-old. 700 words in text citations.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.

Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.

Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.

APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.

Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.

LopesWrite Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.

Late Policy

The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.


Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:

Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
