Identifying health status and health risks of older rural residents.


:Older rural residents are vulnerable in both health status and access to health services. This descriptive study was designed to assess the general health status and risk factors of older rural residents age 65 and over. Cluster analysis methods were used to group older adults into unique clusters of individuals with similar health risks. Although strategies are generally targeted at those with limitations in two or more activities of daily living, community health nurses might need to initiate interventions much earlier. Findings of this study can help community health providers, policymakers, and administrators strategically plan to meet the health care needs of various groups of at-risk older rural populations.
