From the Paper:

"This paper discusses the importance of taking a health history and doing a complete physical exam for older (65+) females who have no acute signs of distress and whom are living alone. First, it can be noted that, according to Ebersole and Hess (1990), health history and physical exam information has two primary functions.

First, this information can alert health care professionals to the presence of undetected disease or to the likelihood that certain diseases are at risk of being developed. Second, these assessment data provide health care professionals with the kind of baseline data needed to develop an individualized program of health promotion which Ebersole and Hess (1990) define as behaviors and activities designed to increase health and well-being."
