PSYC2740 Adult Development and Aging

Unit 1 Discussion

The Facts of Aging

Older adults are poor drivers. Or are they?

In this unit's studies, you completed the Facts of Aging Quiz multimedia. The quiz presented various statements about the aging process and older adults. Some of these statements were true, some partly true, and some false.

Generally, our attitudes and beliefs stem from our upbringings and are widely influenced by family values. In turn, family values are heavily influenced by societal and cultural norms. As a result, there are many social and cultural factors that affect our individual perceptions of aging and our treatment of older adults within the family and in our communities.

For this discussion, discuss what you learned about your current understanding of the aging process and older adults. Were you surprised by your score? Most people who have not studied gerontology get 40–50 percent of the questions wrong.

What did you learn from completing this questionnaire? Explore why you were able to answer some questions correctly, and what might have caused you to answer other questions incorrectly. How do you think that family values, societal, or cultural norms may have influenced your answers?

Unit 2 Discussion

DQ1 Diagnosing Mental Disorders in Older Adults

How can mental health professionals be better trained to diagnose mental disorders in older adults?

In your chapter readings for this unit, your textbook described some of the challenges involved in diagnosing mental disorders in older adults. Additionally, you have reviewed the Capella multimedia Generational Themes.

Based on your studies, compare and contrast factors that should be considered when diagnosing an older adult versus a younger adult. Support your discussion with recent, relevant peer-reviewed resources. Your Current Issues in Aging Resource Accordion file contains a variety of resources to help you complete this post.

DQ2  Mental Health Services

Imagine you are supervising Dave, an older adult who is nearing retirement. In the past, Dave has been an excellent employee. However, recently you have noticed that Dave has been making noticeable mistakes—overlooking important details, arriving at work late, and forgetting things. He has also been short-tempered on a couple of occasions. Reflecting on your own work place, what steps would you take to address the issues you have observed. What resources are available at your workplace to help you deal with this issue, as well as resources to help Dave?

Unit 3 Discussion

Health and Prevention

In your chapter readings for this unit, your textbook outlined some of the physical changes that are part of the aging process, as well as preventive measures that can help aging adults eliminate or lessen some of the physical conditions that oftentimes accompany old age. Additionally, you reviewed the Capella multimedia Aging in the United State – By the Numbers.

For this discussion, review as much of your family medical history as you can gather, and also take a look at your current lifestyle. Using this information as a guide, discuss what changes you can make to your current lifestyle that can help you avoid some of the physical challenges involved with aging.

Unit 4 Discussion

DQ1The Use of Technology in Long-Term Care

In the past several years, there have been many advances in technology designed to support the adult and aging population in their day-to-day lives. For example, medical alert necklaces ("Help, I've fallen and I can't get up!") and lift chairs that assist seniors in rising from a sitting position. Many of these technologies allow seniors to continue to live independently in their homes for a longer period of time, and in some cases, save the lives of people who choose to live alone.

For this discussion, search the Capella library, the Internet, local publications, et cetera, and find a senior-assisted technology that you find interesting. Share the results of your search—why it interests you, how it works, and why it is of such value to seniors. Share your source of information; additionally, support your post with a minimum of one scholarly journal article related to the chosen technology.

DQ2 Cultural Response to End-of-Life Issues

The practices and customs surrounding death can vary depending upon culture, religion, and sometimes geographical location. For example, one family may choose immediate burial, while other cultures traditions include practices such as visitations and prayer services that can last for a number of days. There are also practices such as burial at sea, cremation, and scattering of the ashes in a variety of locations for sentimental reasons.

For this discussion, discuss the practices that surround death and dying as they relate to cultures and/or traditions that you practice, or that are of interest to you. Describe the practices, and what drives them. Support your post with materials that can provide further information for your peers.

Unit 5 Discussion

Planning for Your Retirement

A great quote from Carl Jung, the famous psychoanalyst, is: "One cannot live the afternoon of life according to the program of life's morning; for what was great in the morning will be of little importance in the evening" (Goodreads, n.d.). Even though growing older offers challenges, there are many rewarding and positive aspects of aging that balance the negative stereotypes associated with it. The later years are significant and can be rewarding.

For this discussion, develop and share with your peers your retirement plan. Your plan should include:

Where do you plan to live?

What interests do you want to pursue?

How much money will you need to pursue your chosen lifestyle?

What do you need to do now to make your retirement plans a reality?

Where you would like to retire? Research the area.

What do you need to do to maintain or regain your health?

What financial plans do you need to make today to live the retirement of your dreams?
