Introduction to Longterm Services and Supports
This is the first part of a two-semester seminar leading toward more advanced work in gerontology. It offers students an opportunity to examine, discuss, and apply one of several current major social policy issues within the field of aging, and to study the challenges to everyday life from the perspectives of individuals, their families, and their communities. We will learn about advocacy efforts locally and nationally to support policies to improve the quality of life for persons dealing with the particular issue being studied.
