The attached document contains ALL of the requirements. The “Parker Family” case study is contained in the attachment.
This week, as we explore the psychological aspects of later adulthood, we consider theories of successful aging and their application to social work practice. We also consider how you might apply models of grieving to support families in a hospice environment when an aging family member approaches death.
Theories of successful aging explain factors that support individuals as they grow old, contributing to their ability to function. Increasing your understanding of factors that support successful aging improves the ability to address the needs of elderly clients and their families.
To prepare for this Discussion, review this week’s media. In addition, select a theory of successful aging to apply to Sara’s case.
