American’s have kept a track record in the past 10years about the dynamic change in delivering health care services brought about by advancement in technology as well as the financing approach adopted in running health care management. They have also come to the knowledge of taking seriously the health care of the older population. The statistical record which shows the increasing proportion of the population who will be older than 65years as well as the increasing diversity of the older population are now familiar to all Americans.
The life-span of people have increased due to advancement in technology in public health, health care technology, and service delivery. In the year 1990 approximately 4% of the older population (ie 3million people) in America fall within the age bracket of 65years while in the year 2,000 approximately 13% (ie 35 million people) fall within the age bracket of 65years as seen in the US Burea of Statistics.
There is a very strong speculation that by the year 2050 , 20% of the total US population will turn 65years and older.
Social care professionals with exposure in aging are more relevant in health care to address the social, psychological and environmental needs of elderly people and their families.
After several years of social work in health care, social workers became visible in every area of service delivery, working as professionals in new health models as well as mental health practise.
The socio-economic, political and technological changes in an aging world must not be lost to social workers in healthcare sectors,who must always keep their knowledge base updated
