PART VIII: Late Adulthood

Dr. Kuther's Chalk Talks: Part VIII

Questions to Consider:

  1. What are some of the ways older adults compensate for losses in physical, cognitive, and socioemotional domains as they go through the aging process?  
  2. As people age, they become increasingly motivated to derive emotional meaning from life. How does this influence relationships in older adulthood?
  3. How does the parent-child relationship shift in late adulthood? What sort of assistance do older adults provide to their children?
