Aging And Society

Author:  Rhonda Latreille, MBA, CPCA

Age-Friendly Business®

This module gives an understanding of the age-related and social interaction changes experienced by boomers and seniors. The roots of how cohort-effects can modify the value orientations, beliefs, attitudes, fears and behaviours of 50 + individuals are explained. Concepts of ageism and age discrimination are explored, as well as how the maturing individual’s interaction in the community evolves during the progression through the various life stages. This knowledge is critical to understanding how an individual experiences the aging processes within our social and business communities.
