The field of gerontology has changed so much over the last few decades. And with population trends shifting toward an increase of older people, the study of aging has become more important than ever.
People are living longer. But longer lives are not necessarily healthier lives.
Seniors need specific kinds of care and support to ensure good quality of life. With public health care systems stretched to the limit, and shortages of people with gerontology training, we’re facing serious challenges in this area.
Do you work with seniors? Want to know more about the aging process, challenges facing today’s seniors, and practical methods for ensuring safe, effective care?
