Transitions in Aging
It’s estimated that the older adult population in the United States will double from 48 million people today to 98 million people by the year 2060. This unprecedented phenomenon, known as population aging, creates changes at every level: from health care, social security, work and retirement, to family dynamics, life aspirations, and personal health and well-being.
The Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging “Transitions in Aging” Community Certificate is designed for community members, students, informal care providers of older adults, or anyone who is interested in topics related to aging.
The certificate has two objectives:
- To build shared knowledge of the aging process: myths and misconceptions about aging, experiences of older people and caregivers, and common age-related diseases and conditions;
- To engage participants in lifestyle practices that support healthy aging.
The curriculum is customizable for each participant.
