Gray for a Day utilizes an empathic model to educate participants on the age-related sensory and functional challenges that older adults might face. Participants will get to "gear up" to discover what it is like to live with age-related conditions.

Availability: This class will be taught January-May. 4 weeks of advance notice is required to schedule this lesson.

Lesson Objectives: 

  • Understand how the senses and functional abilities can decline with age
  • Experience age-related sensory and functional decline
  • Understand the influence of sensory and functional decline on daily life
  • Be encouraged to develop the skills necessary to effectively interact with and support someone who may be experiencing age-related sensory and functional challenges
  • Understand how taking steps to improve or maintain your health now will contribute to sensory and functional well-being in the future
