Sexual orientation and social responsibility

Assignment  #1

Chapter 7 in your textbook discusses the unique issues that are experienced by older gay men and lesbians in society. Review that chapter and watch “Isn’t Aging the Same for Everybody?” to prepare for this discussion. In addition, review the information related to resources for the aging found at the “LGBT Aging Resources Clearinghouse” for this discussion. Then, consider what the issues facing older gay men and lesbians are. Specifically, discuss the legal issues that are related to public policies, end-of-life decisions, housing, and health care. Compare and contrast the experiences of older gays and lesbians with those of older heterosexuals. 

Please note that this discussion is not about whether you personally support homosexuality. You should focus your discussion on what issues are experienced by this group and how those experiences differ from those of older heterosexuals.

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.

Assignment  #2

You will be reading Chapter 7 of the textbook and an article titled “Demography of Aging in China and the United States and the Economic Well-Being of Their Older Populations” (found in the ProQuest database, in the Ashford University Library) to prepare for  this discussion. In addition, you will watch “The Economic Effect on Baby Boomers’ Caring for Aging Parents’” and “Caring for Aging Parents.”

In “Demography of Aging in China and the United States and the Economic Well-Being of Their Older Populations,” you are introduced to the roles of the family and government in the East as well as in the West. 

Describe the differences and similarities you learned about in terms of the views on social responsibility when caring for a rapidly increasing older population. What are the reasons for these differences between the treatment of the aged in the West as compared to those in the East? Are those reasons more cultural or practical? Explain your answer. 

When looking at the role of family as a support system for the aging in later life, is there a social responsibility in the United States for family members to absorb some of the needs of their aging family members? Why or why not?

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
