For this discussion forum, imagine you are 85 years old and either living in NYC on Tuesday, September 11, 2001, or living in New Orleans on Sunday, August 28, 2005. In either case, you are a frail elder who doesn’t own a car. What special challenges did you face on that day? A frail elder is a senior adult in poor health typically with co-morbidity, such as two or more diagnosed conditions, with low mobility, and poor health habits that either helped cause or resulted from the elder’s health status. Not all, but many, frail elders live at or below the poverty line. Include this information in developing your answer.
