Course Description

This course explores the challenges and opportunities aging presents and the options available for extending independence and promoting quality of life through home, community, and/or continuing care services. While a spectrum of choices is explored, the focus is on aging in place and retirement communities. First, the suitability of your home and your community for aging in place and various options for elder and home care services will be considered. Turning to retirement communities, discussion will focus on what differentiates them from other senior/elder communities and the financial models, types of contracts, and fee structures at both independent living retirement communities (ILRCs) and continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs), including the state's regulation of CCRCs. Finally, an ILRC and a number of CCRCs will be visited to learn about these communities, the services they provide, and the nature and importance of waiting lists. Note: An Internet connection, e-mail address, and access to the Web are required.  Lecture (plus Questions), Viewing Videos, Field Trip(s)
