Task # 1

Care Plan 

Medical Diagnosis: Liver spots

Age spots – also called liver spots and solar lentigines – are flat gray, brown, or black spots. They vary in size and usually appear on the face, hands, shoulders, and arms – areas most exposed to the sun. Though age spots are very common in adults older than age 40, they can affect younger people as well. True age spots are harmless and don’t need treatment, but they can look like cancerous growths. For cosmetic reasons, age spots can be lightened with skin-bleaching products or removed. However, preventing age spots – by avoiding the sun and using sunscreen – may be the easiest way to maintain your skin’s youthful appearance and to avoid these dark skin spots.

Task # 2 Case Study

Case Study: Health Care of the Older Adult

1. The nurse working at the senior center notices Mrs. Jones, a 78-year-old, crying. The nurse approaches Mrs. Jones and asks if she needs help. Mrs. Jones states “I am so embarrassed. I had another accident, and my pants are all wet. It is like I’m a baby. I never should have come to the senior center.” 

a. What factors may be contributing to the urinary incontinence?

b. How should the nurse respond to Mrs. Jones?
