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?

Not enough money to live on once they are on a government pension.Fear of youth.Being treated disrespectfully by young people.In the U.S. lack of universal health care.In another 10 1/2 years, I'll be able to tell you how it's affecting me here in Canada.

I am not a socialist so I do not think that government should have to support the aged although in this country they do. Once a person is old enough and has no means of support but needs nursing home assistance Medicaid does kick in and pay for it. Beyond that, the in between stages are like any other stages, whether one is old or not. Not everyone is meant to live the lifestyle of those endowed with money or those who have worked hard for it. We cannot afford to continue to support everyone.These things are only problems when society views them as problems. Society should view more things as the realities of life. When that happens people will start taking charge of their destinies and start realizing they have to plan for themselves rather than relying on government. After all even governments can change and go broke, which is exactly what the US is on the brink of.
