Hi There:
Is it "seniors care facilities" and "basic skills issues" or "seniors' care facilties" and "basic skills' issues"? I'm confused about the use of the apostrophe here. I don't think they require apostrophes, but i can't articulate exactly why. But wouldn't it be like using "David's pencil" in the sense that the care facilities belong to the seniors?
Thanks for your help.
The facilities do not belong to the seniors, but are merely used by them. I suggest avoiding apostrophes by using senior care facilities and basic skills issues. The first is concerned with senior care and the second is concerned with basic skills.
They do not require an apostrophe, since they are not possessive.
