What are three issues faced by the aging population that you believe to be a problem? Why do you see these as problems? Are there any agencies in your community that address these problems? If so, what are they? If not, why do you think they are not being addressed? How has the long-term health care system addressed aging populations in the past 50 years?
Lack of nutrition and balanced meals. Meals on Wheels has greatly diminished since rising fuel costs two years ago.
lack of networks for social support in rural areas.
lack of transportation.
1. Health insurance (Medicaid)
2. Social security (not enough of the young to pay tax to support the old pop.)
3. Lower workforce (less young people available to work)
The current health care system is unsubstainable thus the new health care reform is being initiated recently.
