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?
