What’s covered during the day?

Media sources have warned of a “life expectancy time-bomb” as life expectancy is rising faster than originally predicted. It is now being suggested that the age of 90 will become the norm in some affluent areas of the UK by 2030. Whilst Elderly people can contribute in many valuable and meaningful ways in society, such as helping with childcare or volunteering for charity work, they may also have vast and complex health needs that require significant resources to treat them. It is essential therefore to have an understanding of the natural Ageing Process and Diseases/Conditions that affect the Elderly so we can cope and deal with the demands placed upon us in our delivery of care and this session has been designed to facilitate this. It also looks at the types of support/treatment available during the ageing process and an opportunity to share your own personal experiences in a safe and supportive environment during the group work.

Learning Outcomes?

  • Understand the physiological changes of aging
  • Gain awareness of chronic diseases and their impact on older adults
  • Understand the importance of health promotion activities


Delegates will be assessed continuously throughout the session by the Tutor in order to be issued with a Certificate of Attendance.
