imagine you are 85 years old and either living in NYC on Tuesday, September 11, 2001, or living in New Orleans on Sunday, August 28, 2005. In either case, you are a “frail” elder who doesn’t own a car. What special challenges did you face on that day?
Scenario – “frail” elder
NOTE: A “frail elder” is a senior adult in poor health (typically with comorbidity, i.e., two or more diagnosed conditions), and with low mobility, and poor health habits that either helped cause or resulted from the elder’s health status. Not all, but many frail elders live at or below the poverty line. Include this information in developing your answer.
Remember: You are required to support the points you make in your post with specific reference to the course textbook or other scholarly source, using APA citation format.
