The course focuses on the older adult who resides in the community. Aging is presented as a normal development stage in the life cycle. Factors that facilitate the achievement of old age as an enjoyable and satisfying time of life will be stressed. Forces that impact negatively on the quality of life of older adults will be analyzed. Relevant gerontological research will be highlighted. Support services and available resources for the older adult will be explored and provide an opportunity for student involvement with the elderly.
