The aim of this programme is to support adults in later life and those working with them to work towards change both on a personal and a societal level. Social Care graduates, Home Care attendants, those engaged in front line services to older people and those who wish to explore their own ageing will be particularly interested in this course. The main objective is to develop critical awareness among students of the impact society has on the lives of older adults and to maximise opportunity for creative, physical and psychology engagement in the third phase of life.

Students will study;

  • Demography of ageing
  • Ageism
  • Ageing and Self-Confidence
  • Life Transitions
  • Successful Ageing
  • Circle of Support

  • Active Citizenship
