Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this directed project was to develop a course for training final year students and interns of K. J. Somaiya College of Physiotherapy pursuing their Bachelor's degree, to understand the process of aging and learn effective strategies to deal with their older clients in a senior care posting (internship) which is part of their Bachelor's program.

This course developed for this directed project was based on the Master of Science in Gerontology program offered at California State University, Long Beach. This course included five topics. Each of these five topics includes a topic outline and a PowerPoint presentation, an examination and an evaluation tool.

There is a lack of trained professionals who can conduct classroom discussions with the students. To overcome this, additional resources are provided in the course. This course provides the foundation for more complete development of this course into a Bachelors' or a Masters' degree program.
