Can you please proofread this for me for grammar mistakes thank you.

British American novelist Amelia Barr once stated “old age is the verdict of life”. Aging is a natural process of life that effects all of us. Sociologists see aging as a process of socialization or the learning of new roles appropriate to different stages of life. As we age our society and the world change drastically. Traditionally elderly care has been the responsibility of family members and was provided within the extended family home. In todays society it has becoming increasingly popular for elders to be cared for at facility's outside of the home. This is due to decreasing family size, the greater life expectancy of elderly people, the geographical dispersion of family members, and the tendency for women to be educated and working outside of the home. Today we can expect that a U.S. male will live until he is 74 and a U.S. female will live 80 years. This increasing percentage of older people in the United States is referred to as the graying of America. Overtime as the elderly begin to age they withdraw from society. To help them from not feeling like their not accepted or capable of living life on their own, many options become available for them and their family members when deciding about what type of care they need. Everything from independent living, assisted living, nursing home, retirement community, and even a Alzheimer's/Dementia living facility. Depending on what the elderly individual wants and the type of help they need living facility's for the elderly are available all over the world. Activity is the essence of life for people of all ages. We need to remember that for many older people, life can still be full of adventure and wonderful growth.
