GERON GR 622 Aging in Society


This course provides an in-depth look at the sociological aspects of aging from an applied perspective useful to administrators and managers. The course focuses on how social arrangements impact aging individuals and their families and how aging individuals impact society. We will also discuss emerging trends in the long-term care systems, such as technological advances, consumer directed care, aging in place, and alternatives to nursing home placement.
