Functional Health Patterns Community Assessment Guide
To conduct comprehensive research, it is vital for a Functional Health Patterns Community Assessment Guide to be completed, as this is what will provide valuable information and data. These, in turn, will be used to draw conclusions that would be used to come up with the determination and recommendation of the research. This research will be conducted on the people living in Unionville, a place located in the state of Georgia, United States.
Section One: Profiling the population
Unionville is a census-designated place located in Tift County in the state of Georgia in the United States. In the last census that was conducted in the year 2000, the population was 2,074, and it is estimated that the population today ranges somewhere between 3,700 and 4,600 people. The people of this place is distributed as follows in terms of race: 0.9% Caucasian, 95.8% blacks, 0.3% Native Americans, and 2.2% Latinos (United States Census Bureau, 2019). Form the above statistics; it is evident that Unionville can be described as a predominantly black community.
The 2000 census also showed that this town had 750 households and about 520 families. The population density was about 3,000 people per square mile. The region had about 900 housing units located at an area with an average of density of 1,145.9 per square mile (United States Census Bureau, 2019). Of the 750 households in the area, 32.3% had married couples, 30.5% had children who were under the age of 18 living; therefore, they were living at home with their parents or relatives. About 30.8% had female householder living alone and without a husband, while 30.5% were non-families (United States Census Bureau, 2019). The average household had a size of about four members, while the average family had about six members. The median household income and family income was $23,430 and $23,372, respectively. This is one of the lowest income rates in the whole of the United States.
The health status of the population
From the held in the local hospitals and government offices, it is evident that the people of this area are not healthy.
After conducting a comprehensive Functional Health Patterns Community Assessment Guide and collecting the above information and data, it would be very prudent to interview a medical doctor to get more information that can help conduct this research. The following question will be asked to the head of the local government hospital where all residents of Unionville go to seek medical attention when they are sick (Hall, 2015).
The interview questions
Key findings from the interview and Functional Health Patterns Community Assessment Guide
From the above exercises, there are many key findings that one can draw from the data and the answers given by Dr. Allan Schumer during the interview. Firstly, blacks who many of them are struggling for basic need and services make up the population of Unionville. The unemployment rates, as well as the poverty rates, are very high. Most of the people living in the area are struggling to afford basic needs, such as food. That is why they are eating from fast foods outlets that offer cheap but hazardous foods. This poor diet has led to increasing of lifestyle diseases, and the government and other stakeholders need to start educating the people of Unionville about the importance of eating healthy foods (DeFronzo, Ferrannini, Alberti, Zimmet, & Alberti, 2015). This can help in saving many lives as well as improving the quality of lives these people enjoy.
