This half-day workshop works as either an introduction or refresher to build awareness and understanding of older adults and the aging process. You will learn about working and living with older adults, as well as your own aging experience. This workshop is particularly useful for professionals in social services, behavioral health, home and healthcare, senior living, recreation, and lifelong learning, as well as clergy and first responders. You will examine myths vs. realities of aging and the impact of outdated societal beliefs and individual age bias. Topics include diversity, the importance of function overdiagnosis, and cohort effects. You will also learn to distinguish between normal aging and cognitive impairment, as well as how to communicate with people who have vision or hearing impairment. Interactive activities, games, and videos are part of this dynamic workshop!
