Community Resources for Older Individuals
Volunteers and political officials in local communities often campaign to improve conditions and provide services to increase the well-being of individuals and families living in those communities. If you are the parent of young children, you might focus on improving the local school or creating safe places where children can play. If you are an individual in later adulthood or a caregiver for an individual in later adulthood, what community resources might be important to you? For this week’s Assignment, you evaluate the resources that your local community provides for its older members.
To prepare for this Assignment, research the resources available in your local community to support the issues and concerns of the older population. Note any gaps in these services and consider what improvements might be made to existing services as well as what services should be added.

- A description of the services in your local community that support individuals in later adulthood
- An evaluation of the effectiveness of the services you identified
- A description of service gaps you identified
- An explanation of how to improve existing services
- A description of services that should be added, and why
Support your Assignment with specific references to the resources. Be sure to provide full APA citations for your references.
