This course examines social work practice concerning the needs of older adults. Social service workers and social workers are being increasingly called upon to meet the biopsychosocial needs of older adults. This responsibility includes assessing the elderly client's functional capacity and often connecting them with appropriate community resources. In this course, students will learn the basics of assessment and strategic interventions with the elderly. This course prepares students with the knowledge, skills, and sensitivity to work with, and on behalf of this growing population, and the related social service systems. -To view course outlines from previous offerings of this course (if available), please visit: https://www.guelphhumber.ca/academic-services/course-outlines IMPORTANT NOTE: The University of Guelph has vaccination and masking policies that may be altered with limited notice depending on COVID-19 circumstances and advice from government, public health authorities, and prevailing science.
