adults comprise the majority of people receiving healthcare services in many of
and long-term-care beds throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. There is evidence some health
care professionals hold negative views about older
people influencing their behavior towards them
and making assumptions about the needs and capabilities of older people.
presentation will explore the deeply rooted negative beliefs about older people
and the aging
process that have been socially created and reinforced and embedded
in functions, institutions,
rules and everyday life. It will explore common themes/concerns expressed by clients,
and staff such as; response to the older person in the ER, acute and long term care, advance care
directives and decision making, sexuality and the environment, and how health care professionals
can learn to listen to the older person while placing increased value on their life’s experiences, wisdom and quality of life.
Refreshments will be served.
This is a free event. All are welcome.
