    Great course

    This course did a great job at explaining the changes that we go through as we age; considerations for working with the older population; & offers some exercise suggestions with clear pictures. Would definitely recommend this course.

    Older adults ebook

    I thought the book was excellent. As someone who has worked with the older population for many years, I found that it reinforced what I have been doing and gave me ideas to enhance my future programs.
