Discussions are fundamental to shared learning, so please be sure to participate early and often!
After you have completed the Reading, and without reviewing your classmates’ responses, post your initial response to the following Discussion. Your post should be at least 200–300 words in length and should extend the discussion of the group supported by your course materials and/or other appropriate resources.
After you have submitted your initial post, take time to review your classmates’ responses and to respond specifically and substantially to at least two of them. Refer to the Discussion Rubric in your Syllabus for specific grading explanation.
- Why are older people considered an at risk population?
- How would you respond if you suspected an adult child caregiver was neglecting their elderly parent with Alzheimer’s disease?
- Name and describe one local program in your area that provides support for older adults and family caregivers.
- Based upon increasing numbers of the elderly, do you believe society is doing enough to help families care for their older adult members?
