Course Description

This course encompasses a range of theories and methods used in gerontology, and endeavours to expose students to current realities of aging Canadians. We examine the social processes of aging, as well as the institutions involved; family, work, housing, health care and recreation. The textbook will be supplemented with general material about Aboriginal elders, and a view of issues and programs in local communities.
