Great post Belkis. Also, normal aging changes and the development of disease may precipitate transition from home to a variety of settings where nursing-focused assessments are performed. Care may be provided in hospitals; skilled nursing, long-term care, assisted-living, and acute rehabilitation facilities; and hospice, senior centers, homes, and clinics. The setting where care is provided usually determines the types of assessment and instruments used. However, the goal of the functional assessment remains the same: to identify an older adult’s strengths and any limitations so appropriate interventions will promote independence and prevent functional decline.
