Aging 101 Hands On Simulation
Sept 22nd at 11:00AM Must RSVP
Families, caregivers and professionals can reach a deeper level of understanding spending some time “walking in their care recipients or clients shoes.” Activities mimic what it is like to feel confused, frustrated, isolated and more. Participants will gain compassion and empathy.
These simulation exercises help participants understand age-related health challenges faced by the older people they serve. These include neuropathy, hearing loss, vision loss, language and cognitive impairment, mobility and balance. Join us as we share experiences with peers to help you process lessons learned in a meaningful, memorable way. What is it like to live every day as an older adult facing one or more common, age-related health challenges? During the engaging, active learning simulation sessions, participants break into small groups for simulation exercises designed to provide insight into this important question. After the “hands-on” experiences, they gather to discuss how such challenges may impact elder’s autonomy and ability to live independently.
Are you an active older adult looking to keep your mind engaged?As we know, a healthy mind is the essential key to staying independent, involved and enjoying our lives to the fullest at any age. Join us for an exciting series of activities to exercise your brain and keep your mind sharp and stimulated. Includes prizes and take home goodies. $10 Donation recommended
