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. These 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.
