Not sure
as I approach my senior years I have become aware of the need for more community involvement with our aging population. As we become increasingly connected thru social media I believe our vulnerable population is becoming more isolated. I would like to see more effort to connect the elderly with children who may need a substitute grandparent or a mentor. I believe our elderly deserve the best we can offer them, without them none of us would be here.
I am fortunate to have decent health and good friends but struggle financially due to high rents in our area, a common problem across the country! I have been on a waiting list for affordable housing for almost 5 years and just recently made it to the top of the list. I worry that there are many lonely elderly people out there who need help and companionship and are struggling daily to pay rent. I would like to see more community involvement and more programs that would connect the elderly with our youth such as mentoring in schools or as fill in grandmas and grandpas!!
There is not enough help for seniors or elderly persons to live in their own homes
