ASHFORD SOC 304 Week 2 Assignment The Aging Connection

ASHFORD SOC 304 Week 2 DQ 1 Aging Simulation Exercise

  • Week 2 assignment

  • The Aging ConnectionThe number of older Americans has increased dramatically because older adults are living longer partly due to the improvements in health care technology. However, the question of quality of life has been raised as people live longer and experience more health problems in the midst of rising health care costs and, as the textbook authors note, “individuals’ past health histories also directly affect their use of health care and will continue to do so” (Markson& Stein, 2012).

  • DQ1: After reading about the physical impairments related to age in Chapter 4 of the textbook and watching “Aging,” visit “Sociology of Aging: Age Related Impairments: A Simulation Exercise” and select at least two of the impairments that are listed in the exercise. After selecting the impairments that you will be simulating, use the household items that are listed and proceed with carrying out your normal tasks around your home. Then, describe which impairments you simulated and what you experienced. Answer the following questions:

ASHFORD SOC 304 Week 2 DQ 2 Self

ASHFORD SOC 304 Week 3 DQ 1 Sexual Orientation in Later Life

  • DQ2:In Chapter 5 of your textbook, you learned about the self-concept, which is how an individual thinks of herself or himself. Although the self-concept is something that is established early in life, it changes as one grows older through life experiences. After reading the chapter, address the following :

  • DQ1: Chapter 7 in your textbook discusses the unique issues that are experienced by older gay men and lesbians in society. Review that chapter and watch “Isn’t Aging the Same for Everybody?” to prepare for this discussion. In addition, review the information related to resources for the aging found at the “LGBT Aging Resources Clearinghouse” for this discussion.

ASHFORD SOC 304 Week 3 DQ 2 Social Responsibility to the Elderly

ASHFORD SOC 304 Week 4 DQ 1 Age Discrimination

  • DQ2: You will be reading Chapter 7 of the textbook and an article titled “Demography of Aging in China and the United States and the Economic Well-Being of Their Older Populations” (found in the ProQuest database, in the Ashford University Library) to prepare for this discussion. In addition, you will watch “Family Care for Aging Parents.”In “Demography of Aging in China and the United States and the Economic Well-Being of Their Older Populations,” you are introduced to the roles of the family and government in the East as well as in the West.

  • DQ1: The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) prohibits discrimination against individuals who are aged 40 and older. This law acknowledges that age discrimination is a violation of an individual’s civil rights. Aging is inevitable and ADEA addresses the needs of older individuals who need access to opportunities for gainful employment. Consider what this law does and what aspects of employment it covers.

ASHFORD SOC 304 Week 4 DQ 2 Family and Medical Leave Act

ASHFORD SOC 304 Week 5 DQ 2 Medicare

  • DQ2:A growing number of American employees are having to care for their elderly parents. Caregiving may include taking extended periods of time off from work. The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993 addresses this need by providing some employees with up to twelve weeks of unpaid leave per year without fear of losing their jobs.

  • DQ2:As Chapter 11 in your textbook notes, the costs for health care have risen dramatically and are expected to continue to rise. While Medicare is a public insurance program that provides coverage to almost everyone who is 65 and older, it only covers a portion of health care expenses. In fact, the authors of your textbook note that “if current trends continue, by 2030 half of those aged 65 and older will spend more than 25% of their income on medical bills and insurance premiums” (Markson& Stein, 2012).
