PIW 134 Old Age is not for the Faint of Heart: Transitions for Older Adults

Course Description

Transitions, in and of themselves, are confounding and challenging to navigate.  Transitions often pose more problems for older adults within North American society.  Older adults - the baby boomers of the last century - are living longer, and this demographic is burgeoning.  This course addresses the transitions that older adults face, such as health changes, relocation, dying and death, as well as existential issues, and examines how these issues impact family dynamics.  This course will be valuable for older adults, family members supporting aging individuals, health and human service professionals, as well as for anyone interested in transitions.
