Description: Older age is often associated with disease and decline and there is a good reason for that – our society defines it that way! To be progressive in the field of aging it is important to think critically when applying associated concepts and theories in order to advance older adult health care practice. There are numerous opportunities and challenges in working with older adults and their adult children. Building the foundation of your knowledge with compelling insights and concepts will provide a new platform from which to effect change in older adult service work and health care.
