Aspects of Aging
Aging brings with it a wide range of physical and mental changes, which in turn impact the social and emotional behaviors of seniors. Aging is not a diagnosis, but it does typically increase susceptibility to illness and alter the body’s homeostasis resulting in functional capacity limitations. These limitations can in turn alter the perceptions of older persons, and impact on their activity patterns and social interaction. Social factors undoubtedly influence healthy aging, and lack of social opportunities and interaction have been acknowledged to contribute to a decline in functional status.
It is essential that all persons involved in the delivery of services to seniors possess an understanding of these dynamic factors on the well-being of their client populations. As such, this educational module will feature a gerontologist and nurse who can provide valuable insights into the aging process, which can in turn assist us all to improve the delivery of services and care to our senior clients.
