Abstract

The number of older adults in the United States is increasing substantially with the highest impact of the baby boomers phenomenon turning 65 in the year 2011, and the number projected to keep growing until the year 2030. The rapid growth of older adults inherently requires expert physicians and nurses to care for this population. The art of simple basic communication between the nurse and patient is essential to nursing.
