In brief: No

Hormone therapy is usually given to relieve symptoms of hormone deficiency.
Osteoporosis prevention was the reason that was given to most women in the past but now we have other options that may be less risk. We also follow bone density to see if it is necessary to take preventive measures.

In brief: Depends

It is an option for women (&men) who are having symptoms of hormone deficiency.
If monitored well, hrt is safe despite all the hype from the press & lawyers. Women & men lose a lot of their vitality as hormone levels fade with age. Easy to replace & easy to monitor.
