This two-part course provides information that will help you understand how disability and age can affect a person’s quality of life. Underlying this information is the philosophy that all people are individuals with personal and cultural experiences that impact how they think about themselves and the world they live in. Your work must be sensitive to this philosophy regardless of your particular job title or responsibilities.

You will be interacting with a wide range of people who need services to help them maintain independence in the community. The consumers with whom you work may include younger people with disabilities and older adults who may have chronic medical conditions, psychosocial issues and functional limitations, as well as interacting with their families, friends, and extended network of care and support.

After successfully completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Discuss the basic issues related to disability and aging
  • Describe the ways in which an individual’s cultural, ethnic, or religious background, or sexual orientation, can influence the experiences of aging and living with a disability
  • Describe the philosophy of consumer choice
  • Define functional capacity in terms of activities of living
  • Demonstrate knowledge of resources and programs that support older adults and persons with disabilities
