local statistics on age and aging trends in your state
Research the local statistics on age and aging trends in your state. Use this information to evaluate the impact these data may have on the future of your state. What will it mean for the social context of the aging population? Specifically, discuss the following:
- Are there enough social services and support options, such as older worker programs, assistance with health care, elder abuse support, financial fraud assistance, and religious and social opportunities to sustain this aging population? What implications does this have on health care in your area?
- How can health care help provide support options, such as acute care hospitals, long-term acute care hospitals, assisted living centers, and nursing homes?
Support your answers with research from the library and the Web.
