GRN 500 - Opportunities and Challenges of Aging

Challenges and opportunities with aging with a special focus on growing old in small towns and rural communities. Includes assessment, treatment, and service delivery implications of gerontological practice for health and human service practitioners. The role and status of older adults as a population group and a potential patient/client group will be considered recognizing that elders bring both needs and resources to families, and communities, and the professional helping relationship. This course partially satisfies the requirements for obtaining the University of Maine’s Graduate Certificate in Gerontology.
