Throughout our lives, we want to be able to live comfortably and enjoy life. Our focus for where our finances go may change depending on whether we are new in the labor force, raising children, or approaching retirement. Discrepancies in income occur based on gender, race, ethnicity, and geography, and income inequality is a reality for older adults just as it is for all ages. In retirement, there are multiple agencies and options for financial support from Social Security to Medicare to private sources. Older adults have become a strong political voice, impacting legislation and policies that affect their well-being as well as that of others. This course will discuss the role of income in the lives of older adults as well as income disparity and poverty concerns. In addition, this course will address the role of politics in the lives of older adults. In this course, you will learn more about how society constructs old age as a distinct period of life. We will consider the importance of social class, race and ethnicity, and gender in defining people’s lives and opportunities. We will also focus on the myths and inaccuracies our culture perpetuates about aging, individuals in later life, and the process of growing old. Such beliefs not only pattern our own expectations about growing old but also have social, personal, and political consequences for older people themselves. We will also examine career opportunities in social gerontology. How gerontology developed as a field of study and the research methods used in social gerontology are also discussed.

Death in contemporary American society is most likely to occur in old age. Historically, causes of death were quite different than in contemporary society, and infanticide was common. Today, social class, gender, race all impact how we die. Attitudes towards death and dying have also changed, with the shape of terminal illness socially constructed. Issues surrounding how we die are shifting as things like cremation, advance directives, and euthanasia become more present in conversation and practice. This course will review the history of death and dying in American society, explore the ways in which the experience of dying has shifted in contemporary society, and discuss current views on how we die and deal with the complexity of end-of-life care today. In this course, you will learn more about how society constructs old age as a distinct period of life.

This module on health and safety will introduce the basic concepts of nutrition, healthy life styles, symptoms and signs of illness, medication issues, responding to environmental emergencies, and basic good health practices. Health is not just the absence of disease; it is being in the best possible health physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. A healthy lifestyle includes good nutrition, physical activity, avoiding smoking and other substances, stress management and early detection and treatment of health problems. Wellness is about habits that maintain good health, such as hand-washing, eating properly, getting plenty of exercise and good personal hygiene. Safety is about avoiding harm or injury. Certain practices, such as locking up poisons, increase safety by reducing the risk of being injured.

When we are children, the adults in our life make choices for us. They choose what we wear, where we go, what we eat and what we learn. As we grow older, we make more of those choices on our own. Learning is life-long. As an adult, we may enroll in art and crafts classes, writing classes, language classes. We might join a gym, or go to the library. We have these choices, and so should those who have Autism Spectrum Disorder. For individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, they may not be given the opportunity to make these choices. We want individuals to learn how to make as many of their own choices and decisions as possible. It is up to DSPs to help each person learn the skills needed to make choices and decisions. In Module 6 “Supporting Skill Development,” you learned different ways to teach and reinforce new skills that help each individual you support to be more independent and have more control of their lives. Given the tools to teach, this module will take the process one step further and apply those teaching techniques to community participation, career and vocational growth and other educational tasks that will enhance a person’s community participation, risk-taking and increased choice making.

Dizziness is a common complaint amongst elderly people. It can occur as a symptom of several underlying conditions, each requiring its own treatment approach. Dizziness is difficult for many people to describe, making it harder for practitioners to determine the underlying cause. Occupational therapist professionals must be able to recognize and differentiate between the various types of dizziness, and be able to perform client assessments to determine the cause of client dizziness. This course discusses the various types of age-related dizziness, how healthcare professionals treat each type, and how occupational therapists can use this information to plan and execute an effective client intervention for dizziness.
