PUBLIC POLICY 2 PUBLIC POLICY INTRODUCTION Senior special citizens require unique special needs for their requirements which encompass asset living, day care for adults, long-term medical care, nursing homes among other necessary needs which cannot be limited to only one practice. Many countries, especially in Asia, mostly prefer traditional methods of elderly care that are leaving these responsibilities for the younger generation and family members to take care of them. However, the elderly need social and personal requirements to age with dignity which might be beyond family reach. As a result, government-related programs have made an important distinction between various needs such as the design of housing, health services, social activities, employee training which should be customer related and the central. Most elderly care falls under the unpaid market sector which often results in poor elderly care. To address this issue, most federal governments have come up with programs to provide subsidies and subsidies to those who provide extensive care for the senior part of the population. Other public policies also require federal governments to set up facilities to care for the elderly.

PUBLIC POLICY 3 depends on another especially for family responsibilities. This connection between the two programs has given the Netherlands an extensive to cover all personal and social needs for the bigger part of the aging population in the country (Van Den Heuvel, 1997). The program was developed on July 13, 2013, to provide guidelines for the provision of integrated care to people with dementia. The government considered a span of problems that affect the aging such as diseases, forgetting things and personal development. These guidelines have been broadly implemented by most private and public professionals offering care for people with dementia. The program also included offering a national register and a financial incentive of EUR 32,000,000 for the same purpose. The name ‘delta plan’ was chosen as it reflected an increase in the number of elderly. At the regional level, the delta, plan is used to create networks between regions involving different stakeholders to work together to address this issue. At the local level, delta plan is used to sensitize people, giving them information to be able to participate in social networks related to care for the elderly.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
