Compare the historical and current perspectives of the concern, draw connections between the concern and the well-being of individuals, and analyze the impact of relevant factors on the concern.

The final project for this course is the creation of an analysis paper. The aging population in the United States is increasing, and with this increase comes a greater focus on the unique needs and concerns of the specific group. These needs and concerns vary extensively throughout the population in terms of physical, cognitive, and social abilities, and the varying degree of support systems. To address the wide array of potential needs and concerns, professionals in the field must have a wide breadth of knowledge of the background, influential factors, and potential approaches to meet the needs and address the concerns of the aging population. For this assessment, you will use information gathered from the interview and independent research you conducted in your milestones to inform your analysis paper of a specific primary concern of the aging population. In your analysis paper, you will compare the primary concerns identified in the interview and those discussed in the course, and select a specific concern on which to focus the remainder of your analysis paper. Compare the historical and current perspectives of the concern, draw connections between the concern and the well-being of individuals, and analyze the impact of relevant factors on the concern. To conclude the analysis paper, you will make recommendations to both, address the concern and communicate relevant information about the concern to the aging population. Ensure you support your claims throughout the analysis paper with evidence from your interview and literature review. Note that the interviewee MUST remain anonymous; real names and identifying factors of the interviewee must not be used. For example, you may refer to your interviewee as “Mr. M” or “Ms. R.” In this assignment, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following course outcomes:  Compare current and historical perspectives on aging for identifying potential improvements in the public perception of the aging population  Analyze the interrelationship between primary health concerns of the aging population and their well-being  Recommend strategies for appropriately communicating health information to the aging population  Analyze factors that put aging populations at increased risk for physical and mental health complications.
