While this module explains that longevity and independence are the norms among seniors, there are also widespread, common health challenges in the older age groups. Basic information is provided on the more commonplace medical conditions among seniors (e.g. heart disease and stroke; arthritis; diabetes; osteoporosis; visual impairment and hearing loss.) Students participate in practical demonstrations of sensory loss features to provide experiential learning and enhance their sensitivity to the impact of sensory deficits, when interacting and communicating with affected seniors.
