Meeting the Needs of the Elderly
Working with the elderly has many facets and is growing more vital as our society ages. Middle-aged persons are faced with tough decisions regarding the care of older family members, frequently with the extra difficulties of health and mobility constraints. Furthermore, towns must consider how to address the requirements of senior populations, which may include meal delivery to their homes, medical care, and transportation.

Include the intervention’s aim (i.e., what the intervention will achieve) and three components of the intervention, together with an explanation of how they serve this goal, in your plan of action.
