Age Sensitivity in Society Discussion – Assignment Help

I’m working on a Social Science exercise and need support.

Age sensitivity training is becoming increasingly more common for individuals who are interested in learning about the specific needs and challenges of older adults. Participants experience sensory changes associated with aging through simulation. Age sensitivity training provide participants with valuable tools and information for working and interacting with older adults.

Instructions:

1. Watch this brief video on ‘What it feels like to be a frail senior’.

2. Conduct one or more of the practical simulations listed below.

3. Post your thoughts to the class using the discussion board. There are some questions below (below, highlighted in blue) that you can use to get started. Remember, you require at least ONE initial post as well as at least ONE thoughtful reply to another’s post.

Try one (or more) of these practical age-sensitivity simulation activities and reflect on your experiences.

  • Put a small handful of stones into your shoes, then walk VERY SLOWLY with a cane or walker (use ski poles or a stick if you don’t have one)
  • Put on glasses and then cover them with clear tape. Try going for a walk, using the computer or reading a book.
  • Wear earplugs and have a conversation with a friend or family member. Make a phone call.
  • Put a straw in your mouth and only breathe through the straw. Walk up a set of stairs and back down and repeat 3 times.
  • Put on a pair of gloves and fill out a paper form with a pen. Tie your shoes. Do up a zipper.
  • Put tape around your knuckles and attempt the above.

Questions to stimulate discussion:

Discuss your challenges and feelings about this experience.

Does it change your attitude or feelings toward older adults?

What are the benefits of this type of training?

Should there be mandatory training in some professions? If so, which ones? Why?


You must have ONE initial post and (at minimum) ONE response to someone else’s post. Your post will be approximately 200 words (+/- 50 words) and responses will likely be a bit less. Please note; however, there is not an exact word limit. Think quality over quantity and use the grading rubric to guide you. You also have the option of submitting an audio file. The audio file can be no longer than 3 minutes in duration (+/- 10 seconds).


Tips on how to use the Discussion Board:
