Course Description

Recreation and culture play a critical role in assisting people to live healthier, happier, and meaningful lives as they age. This course highlights the benefits that older people derive from participating in recreation and culture and the risks of not staying physically and mentally active and socially connected. Students explore a combination of theories and practices to understand the history of recreation and cultural services and facilities for older people. A variety of best practices are identified and assessed and students critically investigate how recreation and cultural programming for older adults differs from other age categories and creates welcoming and accessible communities.

Priority registration for students admitted to the Diploma of Gerontology.
