• What types of legislation may or may not be affected by the aging population?Weegy:
However, in the mid term, anti-age discrimination legislation, better health and a statutory rise in the retirement age to manage the cost of the state pension bill will see more older people working for longer, [ [ whether they want to or not (see changes to retirement and pensions). This will decrease the number of old but active volunteers. In the longer term, especially as baby boomers become the ?older old?, there will be a rise in demand for health services and long term care, possibly combined with constrained public spending, creating a challenge for the funding of public services and pensions and increasing pressure on families and friends to support retirees (see changes to care and careers).www.3s4.org.uk/drivers/ageing-population

• How does poverty affect the ageing populationWeegy:
An increase in the numbers of older old people (80 plus), will mean more with complex needs. The baby boomers are more assertive, put more emphasis on lifestyle, and do not consider themselves old. [ Older people will form an increasing proportion of the electorate and are more likely to vote than younger people. The ?grey vote? is therefore likely to have increasing political influence.
Future older generations are predicted to be healthier and more active. In the short term this may mean a rise in potential volunteers as the ?baby boomer? generation reaches retirement.

• Is the number of gaining population expected to rise in numbers or decrease?Weegy:
According to current projections, the global population will reach eight billion by 2030, and will likely reach around nine billion by 2050. [ Alternative scenarios for 2050 range from a low of 7.4 billion to a high of more than 10.6 billion. Projected figures vary depending on underlying statistical assumptions and the variables used in projection calculations, especially the fertility variable. Long-range predictions to 2150 range from a population decline to 3.2 billion in the 'low scenario', to 'high scenarios' of 24.8 billion. One scenario predicts a massive increase to 256 billion by 2150, assuming the global fertility rate remains at its 1995 level.

• How have people with disabilities been treated in the past?Weegy:
Abuse has become a focus of concern in today's society. Historically, signs and symptoms of abuse in people with developmental disabilities have not been effectively recognized, assessed, or treated. [ Preconceived ideas, institutionalization, lack of creative communication and technologies, and limited self-determination influence the incidence of abuse. These factors impair health care providers' ability to assess, intervene, and treat these people. Development of a supportive culture, education, professional attitudes, and prevention are the tools health care providers may use in partnership with people receiving their services to effectively respond to circumstances of abuse.
Reports of abuse are prevalent in today's society: Pick up a newspaper. Watch the evening news or an afternoon talk show. People agree that abuse must stop. Are we concerned about abuse for everyone? Historically, individuals labeled developmentally disabled (also known as mentally retarded) have been treated with less concern than most people. Is this because they sometimes behave or communicate differently? Unfortunately, many people have been institutionalized because of these differences. Recent surveys (Baladerian, 1991; Crossmaker, 1991; Enfield, 1992; Sobsey & Doe, 1991) suggest an increased risk of abuse in persons with developmental disabilities, especially if they have been institutionalized. Abuse ranges from overt physical attacks to more insidious forms of intimidation and neglect.
There are various challenges when people with developmental disabilities seek health care or mental health services as a result of abusive experiences. The majority of challenges revolve around communication. Health care providers' preconceived ideas about people with developmental disabilities and what is "normal" behavior may interfere with the assessment, intervention, and treatment process. Determining the cause of behavior changes and presenting symptoms in a person with absent or limited communication skills can be confusing and difficult, but these challenges can be met. ] Auto answered|Score 1|mayihelpyou?|Points 220|
