Use newsprint to show answers.
Students can use Notes Page in their Guide
Ask youth to identify health problems that they know their grandparents or parents have.
You have a list of 14 likely conditions in the Guide to prompt youth.
List their ideas on newsprint. Leave a space next to it to go back and fill in the kind of doctor to treat that condition. (10 minutes)
Now ask them to identify the kind of doctor that treats each problem.
If they don’t know, every condition is matched by a specialty in your Guide.
Write their answers next to the condition in different color marker
Once the list is completed with the specialists, tell students that the average older person has at least three health conditions. Ask them:
What problems could this cause? (Such as keeping appointments, driving there, being prescribed different pills.) (5 minutes)
One older person said, “I just feel like a bunch of body parts. Nobody treats ALL of me.” Discuss how this person must feel. Why?
“Well being” isn’t just about being physically and mentally well…it also means the spirit is well.
Read this parable & ask youth to discuss what it means: (10 minutes)
