Community-based services help maintain the quality of life of older people

I would like from the writer to write a short piece (500 words plus or minus 10%) in response to the following question:

Drawing on Hambleton et al 2008, how can community-based services help maintain the quality of life of older people?

. If you would like to write an academic piece, grounded in wider reading, then please feel free to do so: but if you would rather write a more purely personal response, you may do so.
