CHANGE AGENT 2 Change Agent When I think of a major change needed in my community is the elderly having available options and resources. As our society has grown into a more youth-based society, we have started to overlook the millions of older citizens. In our quest for youth, we as a people have forgotten that we will still get old. Most of us will not want to be a burden on our children, whether they think we are or not. Fortunately, there are several aspects to discuss when talking about the needs of the aging, adapting to a different living environment and activities, as you get older, and need more care. Most of us will not want to be a burden on our children, whether they think we are or not. Fortunately, there are several aspects to discuss when talking about the needs the elderly and living arrangements. The housing options for older adults are assisted living facilities, age- restricted retirement communities, continuing care retirement communities, skilled nursing facilities, Co-housing, and aging in place with in-home caregiver assistance. All of these offer a variety of options to care and activities. The change options I will be to help aging adults are activities that will engage both physical and mental stimulation, learning courses to nurture the brain, a virtual community to keep up with new technology, medical facilities to provide immediate medical care, and volunteer opportunities to help the community members keep active within their environment. There are many activities geared towards an individual’s likes and dislikes. The individual can choose to participate in many or none of the activities. There are different exercise options for the different levels of people from fast movement aerobics to a slower paced Pilate’s class, dance classes, horseback riding, biking, and walking.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
