    aimed for

    Hi,

    Could someone please tell me how different "aim at" and "aim for" are?

    Could I substitue "aime for" with "intended for"in the sentence below?

    An innovative concept of health and wellness services aimed for senior men and women, which provides for a broad range of products able to satisfy the most diverse needs and wishes.

    I have no source to provide you for this sentence.

    Re: aimed for

    "Aimed for" is wrong. "Aimed at" would be correct.

    Why do you have no source? Did you memorise this entire long sentence but then somehow forget where you saw it?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: aimed for

    Thank you so much.

    No, I've copied it from a pdf file which I received from a friend.

    Re: aimed for

    Note that although "aim for" would be incorrect in that sentence, it can work in other sentences.
    e.g.,
    In archery, you should aim for the middle of the target.
    or
    Successful people aim for the top.
