Resumen

ROJAS ESPINOZA, Jessica Belen et al. Health needs: experience of older women in a day center. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2019, vol.serIV, n.23, pp.69-80. ISSN 0874-0283.  http://dx.doi.org/10.12707/RIV19047.

Background: Older adults are more susceptible to manifest the effects of their social, economic, cultural, or political environment on their health. Objective: To describe the health needs of older women in a day care center. Methodology: Mixed study, with a population of 490 women and a sample of 177. The 60-item Gordon's 11 Functional Health Patterns Assessment questionnaire was applied, obtaining a 0.735 reliability, as well as an in-depth interview in 10 key topics. The data were analyzed with central tendency and content analysis measurements. Results: The needs of older women were submitted to a full analysis (physical, social, emotional, and spiritual). The majority has type-2 diabetes mellitus or high blood pressure. Almost half of them has overweight, constipation, and abdominal distention problems. There is no follow-up of preventive health actions, only curative ones. Conclusion: The needs detected are nutritional guidance, preventing and recovering from physical ailments, keeping moving, reducing stress and anxiety.
