"This Aging Awareness project can be a valuable educational tool that will teach participants to be more sensitive to the needs of older adults. This experience will increase one's understanding of normal age-related sensory changes, will dispel the myths of aging and will present a more positive focus on the realities of aging and the aged. The training program is a tool that fosters not only a positive image of aging, but is also a means of providing the participants with useful information that will teach them to be more senior-friendly. The six session project helps prepare young people to visit nursing homes, interact with seniors in the family and community, and just develop sensitivity for the aging.
