Society as part of the program of care for the elderly has the responsibility to ensure that
appropriate health care is provided to this population and ensure that services are provided by
skilled and trained personnel. The availability of social services and psychological support is an
important factor to promote health and well-being on this group. Additionally, the society needs
to make medical and nursing services available to improve their quality of life as well as create
government programs that provide monetary assistance to help the low income elderly with
housing difficulties and inadequate nutrition.
