I agree with him on this point because once a person becomes very old, they are not capable defending themselves physically. Nonetheless, I think the best way to avoid such problems would be to have the family members of the elderly person taking care of him or her at home. The other alternative would be to hire a professional nurse to take care of the aged while at home, but under close supervision to avoid abuse.
In Samantha Gutierrez’s paper, the first thing I noted was that her format was different from Gomez’s format. She has used the American Psychological Association APA format. In addition she has used in-text references and provided the full bibliographic information at the end of the paper. The questions and answers are also well-organized. In her discussion, she says that the only obstacle when it comes to the elderly being taken in assisted living facilities is that they do not get the 24 hour skilled care. I agree with Gutierrez, because it is due to such minor errors that make it harder for care providers in these facilities to detect when the aging person is ill resulting to spread of diseases. As noted by Harris (2007) the aging population is prone to many illnesses because of their weakened immune systems. In my opinion, ensuring there is full supervising is likely to remedy this
