About

This Caring for the Aged and Counselling course from Warnborough College aims to develop your understanding of the ageing process, and your ability to help others cope more effectively with their grief.

Overview

The Caring for the Aged and Counselling course from Warnborough College is designed to be useful for counselling and other care professions or anyone involved with elderly people in any other way, formally or informally.

Ageing is the process of growing old. It is a gradual biological impairment of usual functioning. Mobility can gradually decrease, the need for medical interventions may increase and old habits may need to be modified.

There is more to aging than just the physical changes though. Many other things happen as a person ages, which can (and does) impact on their state of mind. These changes generally require adjustments in both outlook and lifestyle. They may include a reduction in disposable income; change in residence, loss of peers (friends, colleagues) and loved ones.
