Aging Simulation Workshop


The Aging Simulation Workshop is an interactive approach to adult learning.  Geared towards those working in long-term care facilities and retirement homes and post-secondary students in health-related fields, participants are transformed into “residents” by participating in an aging simulation exercise.  By donning props, participants transform from their current age, to elderly, facing all the challenges that those living with normal age-related and disease-related changes face.  As part of the exercise, participants must complete assigned activities while contending with physical limitations, medical interruptions, background noise and a variety of other challenges.  Past participants have said this simulation led to direct changes in their perception of and care approaches for their elderly clients.
