During this module you will explore and develop your understanding of the complex needs of older people in a wide range of settings. You will critically review your knowledge base and enhance your skills in caring for older people, gaining an understanding of the values required to meet the needs of older people and their carers.

You will have the opportunity to critically analyse current policy drivers, demographic trends and consider the implications for the health and social care of older people and develop your critical appreciation of the ageing process.

The module places emphasis on the older person’s uniqueness recognising that older people are not a homogenous group.
