Course DescriptionWhat is the first thing you notice about someone? Is it their age? Why is age so important to us? How and why do we age? What happens to us physically, psychologically and socially as we get older? Is there anything we can do about it or are there ways to help change or alter the course of aging? Regardless of your age, knowing what to expect in our senior years will provide you with valuable insight into your own aging process as well as provide you with a better understanding of those close to you as they reach old age. Many issues will face all of us as more and more people are now entering their senior years. You will discover that although we lose some of our physical and psychological abilities as we age, we can gain in other areas and learn to adapt to the changes that all of us will encounter in the years to come.
