Your healthcare providers do not generally cover many of the topics we will discuss in depth. This course will examine how we can enjoy a healthier, happier, and better prepared life as we age. We will look at what is normal aging and what is not. Topics may include: the biology of the aging brain and how that biology affects the risk for cognitive impairment (dementia), defining dementia and quality of life, managing illness (mental and physical) as we age, the role of the family and caregivers as we age, how to address and plan for the end of life (what's important, what's not), and identification of community resources for the aging population.
