Identify two strategies you can implement to provide comfort to maintain function with an ethnically diverse older adult with a chronic disease? This can be nutrition, ADLs, exercise, etc. MY ANSWER:The management of chronic conditions is becoming an integral part of medical care in most parts of the world. The elderly, in particular, are living with one or more chronic illnesses for very long periods. Access to care is not easy, given that most of them are not insured. The situation gets worse when the patient is from an ethnical minority background.

Putting a lot of focus in disease prevention, health promotion and early detection is a very effective strategy for enduring successful chronic disease management.

The second strategy would be to embark on a patient-centered approach
