These hands-on simulation exercises help participants understand age-related physical and cognitive challenges faced by the older people that they serve personally or professionally.┬áThese include neuropathy, hearing loss, vision loss, language and cognitive impairment, mobility and balance. Join us as we share experiences with peers to help you process lessons learned in a meaningful, memorable way. What is it like to live every day as an older adult facing one or more common age-related health challenges? During the engaging, active learning simulation sessions, participants break into small groups for simulation exercises designed to provide insight into this important question. After the “hands-on” experiences, they gather to discuss how such challenges may impact an elder’s autonomy and ability to live independently.
