I don’t know how to handle this Health & Medical question and need guidance.


Older Adult Interview

How have older people today handled aging?

This assignment requires you TO TALK DIRECTLY (either in person, via telephone or email) to an older adult – at least 65 years old or older. Specific items to be included:

b) Include information on when and how the individual retired (or plans to, if at all.) c) What the individual enjoys doing in later life and what activities have they had to give up if any?

d) How he or she relates to younger family members or the younger generation in general.

e) What changes has he or she seen occur during his/her lifetime that they believe have influenced their life?

f) What are some historical events that they believe are unique to their generation?

i) How does the elder feel about getting older?

j) What does he or she believe has contributed to his or her wisdom?
