Essential Questions

How can the elderly feel more welcome into the society?

What are the major challenges elderly face?

How can life be convenient even though we have aged?

How do we convince the elderly's families not to leave them in the homes and take care of them instead?

What kind of special transportation and food should the elderly have?

Nowadays, a percentage of elderly do not feel welcomed in the society because their families leave them alone on the streets or in the old folks home. They would feel lonely as they lost a family. They also have some challenges they face because of the modern design and infrastructure. When we age, our lives MAY be less convenient because there would be no one to take care of us and there are some things we will not be able to do already. Because of the challenges, the elderly should have special transportations for them to make their lives more convenient and overcome their challenges. Some elderly would also have trouble chewing some food, so maybe they could have special food for them to eat.

Some good points there Michelle, especially in terms of having dedicated services and infrastructure for the elderly. You might also want to consider the concept of Universal Design, as I have highlighted in my lesson previously. Do continue to ask some good questions.

The questions are good and the explanation is quite in dept. From the explanation, I am able to sort of visualize the challenges faced by the elderly.
