This paper will concentrate on a community in the province of New Jersey called Parsippany Troy Hills aka Troy Hill Parsippany. Parsippany. The end of this paper is to measure the Parsippany Troy Hills community and the appraisal will concentrate on facets of the community including wellness and safety. Parsippany Troy Hills lies in the Newark Piedmont basin in a county called Morris county. The community was foremost formed by European colonists in the eighteenth century which before was occupied by Native Americans. The name Parsippany came from a Native American word “parispanong” . which means “the topographic point where the river winds through the vale. Parsippany-Troy Hills township is located at 40°51?35?N 74°25?24?W40. 859636°N 74. 423348°W ( 40. 859636. -74. 423348 ) .
Harmonizing to the United States Census Bureau. the township had a entire country of 25. 394 square stat mis ( 65. 771 km2 ) . of which. 23. 563 square stat mis ( 61. 029 km2 ) of it is land of which is covered with metropolis streets. eating houses. Parkss. shopping centres. schools. houses that range from old and condemned to new and expensive and 1. 831 square stat mis ( 4. 742 km2 ) of it ( 7. 21 % ) is H2O. As of 2010. the population of the community was 53. 238 reflecting an addition of 2. 589 from the 50. 649 counted in the twelvemonth 2000 nose count which had in bend increased by 2. 171 from 48. 478 counted in the 1990 nose count.

The Township normally has a humid clime with cold winters and really warm hot summers. It is normally cooler compared to other communities in the province of New Jersey at dark and early in the forenoon with record lowest temperature recorded at -29 ? F and record high of 104 ? F. The township of Parsippany has everything a community needs to last so most people do non even go outside the community.
Most of the concerns in the community are independently owned and run by the members of the community. Troy hills have been a really quiet and peaceable community harmonizing to community members apart from the issue of domestic force among a focussed group in the community. My overall feeling about the community is a positive 1 because my household owns a house there and I visit at that place frequently and from my experience. it is really peaceable and quiet compared to my other community in New York. Most people have lived in the community for old ages without going outside their township. When I asked some “why” . the response I got was there is everything in Parsippany so why travel outside the community to acquire something. There is reasonably much every shop and eating house that one can believe of in the township. run alonging up along the towns major street ( route 46 ) . Driving along path 46 I came across supermarkets like Shoprite. Wall mart. Costco. Bravo and a twosome of other little supermarkets. There is besides a long stretch of section shops like TJ soap. United States Marshals Services. Sims. Burlington coat mill and many others.
There is besides a promenade ( Morris Hills Mall ) which is 10 proceedingss drive that has other stores like vesture shops. and film theatres. Besides along path 46 and Beverwyck route which are the 2 chief roads of the community. I came across some Laundromat’s and dry cleaners where some members of the community do their wash. There weren’t many people in these Laundromat’s because most people in the community ain washers and driers in their places so they do their wash at their places which I think was really good because it prevents overcrowding in the Laundromats. I besides came across some beauty salons and barber stores in the community where some people were acquiring their hair cut and done and others were acquiring their nails and pess done ( manicure and pedicure ) . Parsippany besides has multiple Parkss where people go exercising. play athleticss. host field daies and barbecues and besides hung out. At one of the Parkss that I visited. I saw a group of Indian occupants playing fusillade ball and another assorted race group of inkinesss. Latino and Chinese immature grownups playing basket ball which I joined to play with them.
There were other people besides exerting. some running others making push and pull ups. Parsippany besides has a batch of organisations whose leaders are stakeholders in the community. Most of these organisations are at that place to offer aid and support to community members in demand. Three out of the many organisations that truly gained my involvement were the Women’s Club of Troy hills. Puzzle Pieces – A divorce and detached support group and the Panic and Anxiety nine. I became really interested in these three organisations because they hosted a joint meeting at the united Methodist Church which is located at 903 S Beverwyck route. to speak about issues on domestic force. I found it really flooring that host of the leaders and members were existent victims of domestic force. I had the chance to go to that joint meeting and was really flooring to hear some of the material these adult females really go through. They were really supportive of each other.
In footings of faith. Roman Catholicism is the largest religion followed by Anglican Church and other Christian religions including Baptist. Church of God and Pentecostal. Other faiths include Islam. Hinduism. Jewish. Buddhism. and some Eastern faiths. The community has incorporated all these different religions and has helped supply topographic points of worship for these assorted spiritual groups. When it comes to the issue on transit. the chief agencies to acquire around is by driving so hence most occupants own a auto. The community besides has a free theodolite system for occupants which operates Monday to Friday from 9am to 4pm. Two coachs run on the hr get downing from the chief shopping centre ( Morris Hills Mall ) to Brookside senior centre. The coachs run both East and West routes severally.

They besides have an exigency section that handles level 2 trauma instances. The Morris town medical centre is a installation that provides pressing attention. workers compensation and a board scope of occupational wellness and preventive services. They besides specialize in Burnss. wound mending. carnal bites and dermatological jobs. The community besides has other health care centres which focus on specific countries of wellness. I came across wellness centres like Immediate Care Psychiatric Center and Greystone Park psychiatric centre which focuses merely on issues related to mental wellness. The community besides has bureaus both private and authorities tally who provides attention for the aged and ill in place scenes and nursing places. As mentioned earlier. the community covers about 29. 394 square stat mis of metropolis streets. shopping centres. Parkss. schools. health care installations and houses. Parsippany is a alone country because of the diverseness of land use.
Most of the houses have big paces and are neatly kept by landscaping companies. Traveling west. the houses cut down in size but still appear good kept. In the northwest country which is along path 46. the houses turn into shops and fast nutrient eating houses. Almost every street I came across or drove on in the community was tarred and the pavements were orderly and good maintained. Sanitation in the community was a large job 5 old ages back harmonizing to one local occupant due to the addition in eating houses along N Beverwyck route which is occupied largely by the Indian population in the community. Harmonizing to a occupant who lives among the Indian population. “there has been a rapid addition of the Indian population which led to increase in concerns being opened. most of which are restaurants” .
This led to increase in roaches and rats around that locality due to go forth over nutrients form the eating house non being decently disposed and less garbage pickups. The usual rubbish pickup in the community used to be twice a hebdomad ( Mondays and Fridays ) . This job was brought to the city managers ( Mayor Barberio ) office and a meeting was conducted with eating house proprietors and policy shapers which led to a determination being made to increase pickups. The community was the divided into 6 territories and a agenda for pickup was developed. The agenda alterations month to month. Below is the existent agenda for refuse pickup for the month of December ;
The Parsippany constabulary section is a civic service organisation dwelling of over 100 sworn in constabulary officers. The section is divided into four chief divisions: Patrol. investigative. support services and professional criterions. Each division is led by a captain and supported by the following concatenation of bids: lieutenants. sergeants. patrol officers and civilian forces. Harmonizing to one constabulary officer I spoke to. most calls the section receives were linked to domestic force which he mentioned is high among the Indian population in the community. The Parsippany fire section is besides working 24/7 to protect the lives and belongingss of the people of Parsippany and environing communities every bit good. The primary duty of the Fire Prevention Bureau is to implement the New Jersey State Fire Code. guaranting that the occupants and firemans of Parsippany are given the proper degree of protection. The Bureau. through public instruction. code enforcement and exigency response. provides the populace with protection of life belongings and the environment.

Herein English is the official and most common linguistic communication and other linguistic communications spoken include Hindi. Bengali. Chinese. Spanish. Gallic and Akan. The most people I work forces in the community were grownups between the ages of 22 to about 45. I besides met some adolescents who were between the ages of 13 to 18 and besides kids ages 3 to about 8. Most of these people were among the group of people I met on the resort area. I walked to one of the community’s resort areas and I met a big group of grownups ( largely Indians ) playing volley ball. I besides saw a group of African American and Latino adolescents and grownups playing basket ball which I joined to play with them. In Parsippany the difference in economic position lies in a broad scope of educational degrees income and business.

Other businesss include care. health care. transit e. t. c. The average family income is about $ 107. 144. Harmonizing to the occupants. life in the community makes them experience safe and secure. In add-on to the fiscal stableness of the community. the occupants are basking a province of the art with respects to their healthcare installation demands. Each service offered is given expeditiously and responsible health care workers see to it that patients or healthcare searchers are satisfied with service offered. Harmonizing to one senior citizen I came across. life here has given him the security when it comes to guaranting wellness and quality life. Most of the local concern proprietors ( eating house proprietors ) were besides happy with life in the community because concern is good as most of the m responded due to the addition in the population along the location of their concerns. Troy Hills Parsippany offers legion service organisations in the community.
Mew Directions in an organisations that helps with supplying lodging and calling developments for the unemployed and destitute to happen occupations whiles Spouses in arrangement another organisation helps everyone over 18 old ages in happening employment. The Upper room Empowerment helps senior citizens with low income. nursing place occupants and orphanhood kids by supplying fiscal aid. nutrient and vesture. The Parsippany Troy hills women’s nine offers aid to adult females in the community particularly victims of domestic force or opprobrious relationships. Puzzle Pieces – A divorce/ detached support group besides helps people faced with divorce and separations in their matrimonies who were largely victims of opprobrious relationships. Other organisations consist of Lifeblood. Lupus foundation of America. National confederation of the mentally sick ( NAMI ) . YMCA and YWCA. Not merely are these service organisations but most of these organisations are besides leting community voluntary. For illustration. voluntaries can be counsellors to assist steer the YMCA and YWCA. The Upper room for Empowerment and the New Directions.
These organisations bring to the attending issues in the community and do alteration by affecting the community. One organisation that has a big impact non merely on the Parsippany community but communities all over is Lifeblood. Lifeblood is a non-profit-making blood centre with aims to cut down dependence on paid givers. set up a pre sedimentation blood confidence plan. work toward a more even flow of contributions and develop roll of givers with rare types of blood. The two chief health care installations which are The Hillside Medical centre and Morristown Medical centre are being operated by the province authorities. So is the Graystone park Psychiatric centre. There are besides a big assortment of in private owned and operated clinics and bureaus that besides provide attention for the community. The Song Medical clinic owned and run by an Asiatic doctor Dr Song who besides is a occupant of Troy hills. The nomadic diagnostic testing of NJ LLC is besides a private organisation whose chief focal point is diagnostic proving.

Some of these bureaus are A Topographic point for ma and pa. Synergy place attention. Brookside senior centre. Cheshire place etc. There is besides a door to door and fixed route transit offered by the Morris country paratransit system ( MAPS ) to senior citizens and the sick for them to travel up and down. to doctor’s assignments and so on. There is besides Access a Link transit system offered by the NJ theodolite which operates in the same mode.
Bing able to populate in a community which is considered to be a quality and stable community non merely in the province if NJ but the state as a whole is a great award for its members. With great health care system which sees to it that the community members and adjacent communities receive quality attention. Even though the occupants are happy in their community. there is one large job which causes a strain on the community and that is the rise in domestic force among a particular focused group which happens to be the Indian population in the community. Domestic force in short has been portion and cloth of many societies and civilization worldwide. It is so commonplace. in fact. that is has frequently gone unnoticed and failed to have the degree of attending it deserves in visible radiation of the annihilating effects it can hold on kids and households. It is usually difficult to acquire a clear image when it comes to issues on domestic force since most instances go unreported in the community with common ground associating to issues like in-migration position and cultural beliefs.
Harmonizing to the Parsippany constabulary section. the figure one offense in the community is domestic force. Between 06/12/0212 and 10/28/2012 there has been 12 reported instances taking to three deceases which were linked to domestic force. Domestic force is lifting so quickly to the extent that the following lines of concerns are jurisprudence houses concentrating on instances of domestic force. Merely by walking through the community. I came across about 15 different jurisprudence houses with their streamers saying about the same thing “We specialize in domestic force and maltreatment cases” . Most of the instances in the community have to make with physical signifiers of maltreatment but domestic force in general can be psychological. emotional and sexual every bit good. As a nurse in this community. working with victims of domestic force to decide and eliminate this strain will be my figure one precedence and this can be done utilizing the different degrees of population wellness attention ( primary. secondary and third bar ) and wellness publicity. Primary Prevention: The end of primary bar is to step in before domestic force occurs by taking the cause and forestalling the development of hazard factors.
This is largely done through instruction. My chief focal point will be presenting the Indian population in the community to new thought procedures. get bying mechanisms ( since emphasis is a causative factor ) . and relationship accomplishments that does non integrate force and that’s will advance healthy non violent. trust and supportive growing of relationships. Besides utilizing the media and hosting forums in schools. churches and community centres to make consciousness and the effects of domestic force and besides to demo community how to react to domestic force state of affairs if they should confront it. Secondary Prevention: This degree of bar is really good because as a nurse in the community I would set up place trials high hazard households and supply support for household members identified as being at high hazard of fixing or going victims of domestic force.
Besides offering crisis support and single guidance to persons exposed. Besides placing exposed persons at earliest possible degree and supplying appropriate services indispensable. Provision of services for kids exposed to domestic force. including age-appropriate guidance. supportive services. and services for the nonabusing parent that support that parent’s function as a health professional. which may. as appropriate. include services that work with the non-abusing parent and kid together. Besides supplying aid in developing safety programs. and back uping attempts of victims of domestic force. to do determinations related to their on-going safety and wellbeing is really indispensable. Third Prevention: At this degree. particular services will be offered for those identified with domestic force illustration place trials with maltreatment victims and their kids. and besides supplying impermanent lodging for victims and protection orders against maltreater because they need some clip off from those opprobrious relationships to mend emotionally.
Childs who bear informant to domestic force frequently show emotional and behavioural jobs and it is my duty as a community nurse to supply mental wellness services to turn to implicit in injury. Besides affecting the community is really relevant to turn toing issues on domestic force. Intensive constabularies. tribunal and community coaction to turn to state of affairss on domestic force is really good. Besides mentioning victims to back up groups in the community such as the Women’s Club Troy Hills. Puzzle pieces and The Panic and Anxiety groups which provides support for domestic force victims. I strongly believe that with these steps in topographic point. domestic force which it the biggest strain of the people of Troy Hills Parsippany will be a thing of the past merely like the sanitation issues on the community has become.
