Growing Older in a Post-pandemic World

Brought to you by Odyssey, this course is part of the Certificate on Aging.

Feb. 2 to March 9 (six sessions), virtual Wednesdays, 6 to 8 p.m. ET

Where did the time go? I still feel young until I look in the mirror! Who are you calling "old"? Many people, particularly Americans, have fought against the aging process for decades. But the pandemic has upended how Americans perceive both quality of life and the aging process itself. This core curriculum course examines who is "old" and what that means in the post-COVID-19 world. The instructor, along with guest speakers, will help students answer these questions and more. For example: Do people still retire completely and if so, what do they do with their time? Where do they live—and how has the pandemic impacted those choices? How have relationships with family and friends changed? What adjustments have family caregivers had to make? What impact will the growing number of older adults have on health care and other organizations in this country? What does the quality of life as we age truly mean?
