FMU Social Work Discussion


Surveys of the low-income elderly men showed that 8% of the elderly in the US had not travelled outside their home for two years.  Some elderly men who had lost their wives either went hungry for days while others lived on cheese sandwiches and TV dinners.  Many suffered from severe depression, rarely heard from their children, rarely had visitors, stopped shaving or bathing, and no longer cleaned their apartments.  You wonder how widespread the problem is and what can be done about it.  How would you document such a need, if there is a need for services or programs, and what kind of programs might be needed?
Read the chapter on Needs Assessment in the textbook.  After reading the chapter, find 1 peer reviewed article on the topic related to your needs assessment exercise. It would be helpful to you if you could find an article related to needs assessment in your area, but it is not required.
