In: Social Issues. Abstract As life expectancy increases the number of older adults requiring long-term care of some kind increases. These adults have varying needs, but most adults have problems with skin integrity, muscle weakness, and emotional issues in long-term care facilities. Interventions to meet these needs focus on preventing skin break down, improving muscle strength to prevent falls, and settings that promote usefulness and a feeling of not being alone. Current options available to older adults may not meet all of their needs, and creativity is needed in devising interventions to meet these needs.

Technology use among seniors | Pew Research Center
I interviewed a senior citizen named Al. Al is 66 years old and was born in Charleston, South Carolina. He was raised with three other siblings, a brother and two sisters. Al attended school for 15 years, completing grade school and high school, followed by two years at Night College. He is currently married and has three children.
Ageing is a concern for all. Perhaps upon reflection, actually glean on the blindness and without the knowledge of parents and grandparents who became senior citizens way before our generation. Several countries, whether developed or developing, are beginning to view ageing from a very different perspective the current concepts. People are questioning and reviewing their attitudes to education, work, their community, personal living arrangement, health and fitness, relationships and spiritual needs. Rapid population ageing and urbanization will be accompanied by increased needs and demands from mainstreaming older persons in the society, income security, appropriate healthcare, housing and other social services.
