The paper explains that the elderly population has less money, less food, more physical and mental difficulties and a higher chance of being harmed or taken advantage of. The paper discusses nutrition issues and Medicare in America, government health care in Europe and other insurance issues. The paper shows how between the nutrition that they often do not receive and the lack of strong medical care based on poor insurance, the elderly people in the world today are truly a vulnerable population.
