Unit 7 A Graceful Life

Hong Kong's population is ageing, with an increasing number of older people. Older adults' bodies gradually age, and their body functions decline progressively. This unit helps teenagers understand the health problems faced by older people, such as sensory degradation, joint pain, etc., and how to alleviate them. Dementia is a health problem faced by some older people. This unit teaches the knowledge about dementia and how to care for patients. Physiological changes in older adults may affect their abilities and effectiveness of communication. We also teach teenagers what to pay attention to and skills when communicating with older people.
