AGING 101 Simulation
June 15th at 3:00PM
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.
