Description: 

Issues facing older adults in today's society. Replaces the view of aging as a time of illness, feebleness, and disability with a view of aging as a time of continued growth, change, and maturation. In addition to the declines of aging, attention will be given to the different ways older individuals interact with society, the unique way they experience social situations, and the specific issues they face as a result of the aging process.
