Essay

 I think there are two major measures that the government should implement to ameliorate health care for the aged.
 The first major measure is improving the hospital system. In this aging society, the number of elderly people is increasing and the number of nurses and doctors is decreasing because of the harsh working environment. Consequently, health care for the aged is deteriorating. Therefore the government should take some measure to enhance the hospital system. For example, the government can reduce politicians’ salaries, instead of curtailing medical expenses, and spend more money on medical care.
 The second major measure is solving the pension system. With the increase in the elderly population and decrease in the number of young people, it is becoming more and more difficult for the government to maintain the pension system while elderly people spend a lot of money on health care. Hence, it is imperative for the government to take some measure about it. For instance, the government can stop wasting tax money and spend more money on the improvement of the pension system.
 As I mentioned, there are the aforementioned two major measures that the government should implement to ameliorate health care for the aged.
