In your local newspaper, an article was written about the crimes and harms perpetrated against the older population and the lack of protection for many of them. The article ends with the question, “Who is responsible for protecting these individuals?”
Write a properly formatted 1,050- to 1,400-word letter to the Editor answering that question from the perspective of an aging professional or employee working in the long-term care field. Limit citations as this is a Letter to your local Editor, not a research paper. Write a real letter to your Editor with relative information to your locale.
In your letter, address the following:
*Clarify basic differences between a public, non-profit, and for profit LTC facility and include how and why Administrators are responsible for protecting the elderly residents in their facilities. Be clear and use information we have discussed along the way regarding NHAs.
Format your assignment properly according to APA guidelines. Do not simply bullet and answer questions, respond in letter form. Limit citations from References to 1 or 2 as this is a Letter to your Local Newspaper Editor, not a research paper.
