CO 620

Course Description

This course emphasizes the social and personal requirements of senior citizens and dependent adults who need assistance with daily activities and health care, and who desire and deserve to live and age with dignity. Students will review legal concerns designed to protect dependent and elderly adults. Students will also recognize recent statistics with these populations, for example, suicide, intimacy, HIV, substance abuse, domestic violence, trauma, and more. It is an important emphasis that the design of personal living, services, activities, employee training, and health care delivery truly be consumer-centered. Students will review the impact of culture, gender, family background, socioeconomic status, and other systems on dependent adults, elder care, and aging. 2 units
