EXPERIENCING SOCIAL GERONTOLOGY

Description: Select an agency in your area that provides services to older adults (senior center, nursing home, hospital, rehabilitation center, home health, hospice, high rise apartment building, etc). It cannot be an agency in which you currently work or have previously worked. You can find agencies by going to http://www.eldercare.gov/Eldercare.NET/Public/Index.aspx Your instructor can recommend an agency for you as well. It is highly recommended that you plan and conduct your visit well in advance of the written assignment due date! Schedule a time to visit that agency and plan on staying 2 hours at least. During this time you should plan to talk with an administrator and/or direct practice worker AND an older adult client. Consider choosing a direct practice worker that is close to the discipline you are in or plan to pursue (pharmacy, speech pathology and audiology, psychology, social work, etc.). You will need to consult with the administrator or worker to identify a client. Please assure them that the client's participation with you is voluntary and confidential. Following your visit and discussions with staff and client(s), you should be prepared to answer these questions: -what services does this agency provide to older adults? -what are the most critical problems/issues facing older clients of this organization? -what have you learned about aging from this experience? (be sure to tie into concepts from the course) **additional topics and questions should stem from your own interests and experiences. You should have at least 5 additional questions prepared. These can be questions for older persons, staff, or both. Most importantly you should observe the setting carefully! After the visit, be sure to send a "thank you" note or email to the agency. Following the visit, students will complete a 5-7 page paper that summarizes the findings and reflects upon your visit and interactions (see the document “Guidelines for Submitting Papers” in this unit for formatting). The papers will be graded using the following criteria: a. Extent to which the each specific component of the assignment is addressed b. Demonstration of analytic and critical thinking c. Quality of writing, including spelling, grammar, organization, and clarity
