Course Description

This course explores how to provide for continued independence as aging progresses and needs change. Focusing on aging in place and retirement communities, we explore the challenges and opportunities that come with aging and the options available for extending independence and promoting quality of life. We'll consider your home and community for aging in place and options for home care services. We’ll discuss how retirement communities differ from other senior communities. Finally, we'll visit an independent living and a number of continuing care retirement communities (ILRCs and CCRCs) to learn about the services they provide, their contract models, entrance and monthly fees, and the nature of waiting lists. The material in this course builds toward our site visits, so we ask that you only sign up if you are able to attend all class sessions. An internet connection, email address, and access to the Web are required to receive course announcements and materials.
